Stage 2 of the Strand water park renos are starting this week, and we think you're going to be impressed with the end result.
The value of the works at $500,000 will see the installation of four new picnic shelters, landscaping, bollard lighting and improvements to pathways and connectivity.
The great news is that the park will remain open during the works which will have little to no impact on users.
Stage 1 of the $2.8 million project, which began in April 2016, has already seen a larger playground, new softfall, shade structures and new lighting installed, as well as an upgrade to surrounding landscaping.
Member for Townsville Scott Stewart said the water park had been a hugely popular aspect of the Strand since its redevelopment in 1999.
“I’m proud that the Palaszczuk Government has funded a project where Townsville families can continue to enjoy this local iconic setting,” he said.
The best news is that the works will be completed by the September school holidays!
