An earlier post by the Mudgee Guardian repeated information provided in May 2018 that the Mudgee Water Park would resemble the park at Elston Park in Dubbo.
Mid-Western Regional Council has reached out to clarify that the design of the Mudgee Water Park will in fact be significantly different to the one in Dubbo, with Mudgee’s featuring slides, interactive water features and much more as can be seen in an artist render provided by council.
With construction taking place in Lawson Park recently, the Mudgee Guardian has received questions about the status of the water park due to be built in the park.
The Mudgee Guardian reached out to Mid-Western Regional Council to find out what the latest update was with the upcoming water park.
“The gated entrance on the western side of Lawson Park (through the Mudgee Pool Carpark) will be closed until the end of March to allow for the construction of the Mudgee Water Park,” a council spokesperson said.
“The Eastern entry to Lawson Park (off Short Street) remains open.”
“Construction is currently underway on a retaining wall for the site with main works due to commence next month. Mudgee Pool and car park will remain open during this time.”
“Council secured $800,000 in grant funding to build the all new facility through the NSW Government’s Stronger Country Communities fund.”
“A water park was identified as one of the top three priority projects by residents during consultation for the Mid-Western Region Towards 2030 Community Plan.”
“Located within the Mudgee Pool facility, the new interactive park is planned to include a water slide, splash pads, tipping buckets, spray cannons and fountains.”
“The park is due to be completed by the end of the 2018/19 swimming season.”
