Sum­mer water fun

Southern Gazette (South Perth) - - STREET WATCH -

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.”

The in­flat­able wa­ter­slides and (be­low) Town of Vic­to­ria Park chief ex­ec­u­tive An­thony Vuleta and Deputy Mayor Brian Oliver make a splash.
