The proposal for a water park in Tin Can Bay is on the minds of many locals, and in particular Tin Can Bay Chamber of Commerce member Cameron Henderson.
The water park will be located in the park near the foreshore of Tin Can Bay, across the road from the library. Although the planning is in early stages the park will include kids sprays, splash buckets and other water activities.
Gympie Regional Council are supportive of the project, with approvals yet to be granted. The proposal will be submitted shortly, giving council time to consider the inclusion of the water park in their 2015-2016 budget.
To date there has been positive feedback from Tin Can Bay locals, with support also from Cooloola and even Gympie residents, commenting that they would utilize the park making day trips to the area, which will then have a flow-on effect for local businesses.
Mr. Henderson said that for locals to support the concept of the water park and to follow its progress, they can log onto the Facebook page “Water Park for Tin Can Bay”.
