Wa­ter park close

South Western Times - - News -

Bun­bury’s highly-an­tic­i­pated wa­ter play­ground is “pretty close” to go­ing back be­fore Bun­bury City Coun­cil.

Mayor Gary Bren­nan con­firmed ne­go­ti­a­tions were con­tin­u­ing with the Koom­bana Bay Car­a­van Park, but said he was con­fi­dent there would be a de­ci­sion this year.

“The de­lay is on work­ing out with the wa­ter play­ground, what Dis­cov­ery Parks will pro­vide and what the city (coun­cil) will pro­vide and main­tain,” Mr Bren­nan said.

“We need to look at pro­vi­sion for pub­lic toi­lets, park­ing out­side of the play­ground area and also what ad­di­tional equip­ment or fea­tures we would fund to make that even bet­ter.

“It’s pretty close, prob­a­bly a month or two away.” The coun­cil is ne­go­ti­at­ing with the car­a­van park over a pro­posal for the play­ground to be at Sykes Fore­shore. The coun­cil has $1 mil­lion set aside for the pro­ject and has al­ready spent more than $440,000 on con­cept de­signs.
