Naming Anzac Park Water Play and All Abilities Playground

Project Overview

We are excited to see the new Water Play Area and All Abilities Playground at Anzac Park taking shape. Construction of the facility started late last year and is expected to be completed by June 2021.

The water play area and all abilities playground will include a range of features such as a sensory wall, inclusive orbit element, a spoon full of sugar discharge bucket, a trampoline, waterfall, crystal fountains and a hammock.

Other features include stream jets, a roller slide, cosmic cannons, spray jets, sugar cane spray poles, a new shelter with a barbecue, and improved amenities.

Maryborough is famous for our links to Mary Poppins author P.L. Travers and the playground will incorporate elements of the story with the spoon full of sugar bucket and rainbow pathways.

Anzac Park is a popular outdoor space in Maryborough and an all abilities playground and water play area will make it an even more attractive place for residents and visitors.

The Water Play and All Abilities Playground is a joint initiative of the Fraser Coast Regional Council and the Queensland Government.The Queensland Government’s commitment of $3 million through the COVID Works for Queensland program meant the water playground could be done all at once, rather than in stages, and we thank them and Member for Maryborough, Bruce Saunders, for their support.
