Dayboro pool adding splash pad to bucket list

Posted: 12pm 20 Dec 2021

Dayboro locals and visitors are in for a treat with a new splash pad earmarked for the township’s public pool.

The zero-depth splash pad will replace the toddler pool, which was built in the 1960s and no longer meets safety standards.

Moreton Bay Regional Council Mayor Peter Flannery says the $300,000 splash pad, complete with tipping bucket, will deliver a safe and accessible, family friendly attraction by late 2022.

“…This new offering will bring even more tourism dollars for Dayboro, with families able to cool off on the splash pad during those summer months,” he says.

All abilities

“It adds to things across our region that are making Moreton Bay a tourism destination for all abilities like the wheelchair-accessible beaches and the sensory exhibition at the Caboolture HUB Michelle Vine: Soft Touch.”

Division 11 Councillor Darren Grimwade says the splash pad will be built by Playscape Creations, a Queensland company with a track record of delivering attractions including The Mill water park at Petrie and all-abilities playground at Arana Hills.

“This is something my community has been calling for, and I’m proud that we’ve been able to deliver for them,” Cr Grimwade says.

“The population of young people in Dayboro is actually well above the rest of Queensland, meaning a facility like this well be well-utilised not just by families visiting but also the hundreds of local families who call it home.”
