Summer water fun
A GIANT waterpark is set to make a splash again on the Burswood Peninsula as temperatures start to rise.
The family fun park Splash City opened last week next to the Belmont Racecourse for its second year.
The waterpark includes inflatable waterslides, children’s play pools, trampolines and an inflatable maze.
Town of Victoria Park residents receive a 10 per cent discount on entry at the gate on showing proof of address.
Town chief executive Anthony Vuleta said the park was another sign that the area, which included the new Perth Stadium, was becoming the entertainment capital of WA.
“Splash City is a great fit to the mix of attractions and things to do in the Burswood Peninsula and Swan River Foreshore entertainment precinct,” he said.
“It is in great company and complements the activities at Perth Racing, Crown and McCallum Park.”
Splash City director Nasir David said patrons would be able to catch a glimpse of the new stadium from the top of the tallest inflatable waterslide in the world.
“Splash City has views of the Swan River on one side and the stadium on the other; it’s the ultimate Perth City location for a summer day of family fun,” he said.
“With the Great Escape closing down, there will be fewer options for families this summer.
“That’s certainly going to have a positive impact on our patronage.”
