Children will soon have another way to enjoy the Narooma Swimming Centre, when Eurobodalla Shire Council installs a brand-new splash pad.

A council spokesperson said Parkequip Waterplay was commissioned to design and construct the new facility, which, when complete, will be available to be used at no extra cost.

The council said the new splash pad is funded with a Federal Government Community Development Grant, and was expected to be completed by the end of March.

Many families are looking forward to the splash pad.

The council’s recreation services manager Mark Upson said the splash pad would be located outside to the north-east of the centre, overlooking Narooma inlet.

“The new splash pad will provide a fun and safe environment for young children to play while parents can grab a coffee and watch the kids splash around,” he said.

“It includes spurting water jets and a water-falling whale tail, and sun protection will be provided with a shade sail.”

The council hoped the project would attract more people to the pool, especially younger families.

“Lifeguards have been receiving a lot of questions about the project, and many families are looking forward to the splash pad opening,” Mr Upson said.

“It adds another reason to come and visit Narooma’s wonderful indoor pool, which is open year-round and located just metres from the amazing waters of the Narooma inlet.”
