Water quality to improve water play

Summer is right around the corner and the one thing at the top of everyone’s mind is cooling down with some fun at Blaxland Riverside Park’s water play.

We want to make sure that you are always having not only the best time, but also the safest time so we will be undertaking works on the water play feature to improve the water quality.

From Monday 14 November to Monday 28 November 2016, we will be installing new chlorine and dosing pumps to improve our water quality and filtration system.


This does mean that the water play will be closed for the works to be completed; however we have ensured that it will be done as quickly as possible so that you can get back to splashing around in no time!

What do these works mean for you? More time to play! We can extend our hours during the hot summer months so you get more time to enjoy the sun.

But don’t forget that other sections of the playground, as well as playgrounds and play spaces in other sections of the Park are available at Wentworth Common, Cathy Freeman Park and Bicentennial Park.

    Will you be adding much needed Shade Sails to the water play area during this closure period as well please? Thanks

      Hi Tarnia

      Blaxland Riverside Park provides a combination of tree shade, canopy shade umbrellas and shade picnic shelters. Given the size of the play areas, it would not be possible or practical to provide shade structures but you are allowed to bring small shade structures similar to what family groups take to the beach or sporting events (up to 3m x 3m).
