Giant water slide fun at new water park

Published Wednesday, 21st October 2015

Sky high fun is in store for the children of Fairfield as Fairfield City Council announces the third exciting element at its new water park.

The water park, to be located at Prairiewood Leisure Centre, will feature a giant water slide tower incorporating three impressive slides. This will complement the other elements of the water park, including a Stingray surfing/skim boarding half pipe ride and the adventure aqua tower.

Mayor of Fairfield City, Frank Carbone, said the giant slides will be a popular feature of the new water park.

“The slides will be 10 metres high with the longest running for 83 metres. They include a tunnel freefall slide for thrill seekers, a twisting tunnel slide and an open meandering slide,” Mayor Carbone said.

“People of all ages will be able to enjoy the slides. For the more timid kids the open slide will provide a fun, comfortable ride. The teens and adults can test their mettle on the freefall slide while the twisting tunnel slide provides a nice middle ground.

“Families will no longer need to outlay the time and expense of petrol and parking required to travel to the coast. They also don’t need to go to other expensive providers to have a fun day out in the heat of summer. The water park at Prairiewood has been designed as an affordable option for the families of Fairfield.

“There are still more exciting elements to come to the water park so stay tuned for future announcements.

“There is no need for families to travel elsewhere for a fun family day out. Fairfield City already holds some of the best family facilities in all of South West Sydney.

“Just two weeks ago we opened our state of the art Fairfield Youth and Community Centre at Fairfield Park, featuring a rock climbing wall, trampolines and large multipurpose indoor courts. This is next to our Adventure Park which opened earlier this year. Soon to come is a boot camp style obstacle course, also located in Fairfield Park,” said Mayor Carbone.

The water park is expected to be completed mid 2016 in time for summer with some elements possibly delivered earlier.
