Flagstone Water Play Park Opening a World Class Event
13 December 2019 – Flagstone’s newest attraction will be launched to the public this month amidst a celebration of world class acts to rival celebrations usually found at Brisbane’s South Bank.
The new $3million Water Play Park has been made possible through a joint venture between Logan City Council and developer Peet Limited.
The interactive water park will launch on Saturday December 21 with performances and all-ages workshops by the renowned Flipside Circus and a trapeze available for children to try. The event will also include the world-famous Dead Puppet Society and their interactive mechanical pelicans, used in the making of Storm Boy.
The party atmosphere will be supported with a DJ playing only beach and summer vibes; giveaways including 100 Ugly Xmas Rashies, beach balls, caps, beach mats and paddle tennis sets; and special guest Aussie Santa to add the beachy festive spirit.
The Water Play Park is the latest community facility in the $12 million Flagstone Regional Rec Park, joining existing high-end facilities including a competition-standard urban skate plaza, one of Queensland’s first water play facilities for dogs, and one of its biggest adventure playgrounds featuring an 11-metre tower.
Peet Limited CEO and Managing Director, Brendan Gore, said Peet was thrilled to be able to offer Flagstone and the wider region such an exciting space this summer for people of all ages to cool off.
“This innovative water playground features a 10m climbable treehouse water feature, tree-shaped waterfalls, and a ‘zero depth’ water course with jets, blasters, and bubblers to keep the community cool this summer,” Mr Gore said.
Local residents were given an exclusive sneak peak of the facilities this week and the opportunity to water test the amenity.
Following 8 months of state-of-the-art development, Peet Limited, Logan City Council Acting CEO Silvio Trinca, and Charis Mullen MP, Queensland State Member for Jordan, joined excited residents, on Wednesday 11 December to turn on and test drive the innovative water features ahead of the extravaganza public launch on Saturday 21 December.
“We are incredibly excited and proud to have our Flagstone neighbours be some of the first in Queensland to experience this new water playground,” Mr Gore said.
Logan City Council Acting CEO Silvio Trinca said the Flagstone Water Play Park would operate in line with Council’s sustainability policy. Water use is minimised by recycling, filtering and sanitising. Evaporation is reduced through a combination of shade sails and non-porous surfaces.
Mr Trinca said the Water Play Park will be welcomed by the thousands of young families that now call Flagstone home.
“Flagstone is one of the fastest growing areas in Logan and this partnership between Council and developer Peet Limited has delivered a superb family facility in time for the school holidays,” Mr Trinca said.
“As well as being a great addition to the booming suburb, it is also another reason for visitors to come and spend a fun day in Logan.”
The Water Play Park launch will be held between 12 and 6pm on Saturday December 21 at Flagstone Regional Rec Park, Trailblazer Drive, Flagstone, just 10 minutes from Jimboomba. It is free to the general public with thousands of dollars of giveaways.
