New name: "SplashSide"
The new water play area and all-abilities playground at Anzac Park in Maryborough will be named ‘SplashSide’.
At the April General Council Meeting, Council considered a community engagement report on the proposed naming of the soon-to-be completed new water playground at Anzac Park.
Council received more than 100 submissions received via this project page and over 100 informal comments on its Facebook page suggesting names for the new facility, with the top three themes being ‘water’, ‘Mary Poppins’ and the ‘Anzac legacy’.
Council decided to name the new Maryborough playground ‘SplashSide’ in line with the major theme of water, suggestions put forward by a number of local residents and to be consistent with the PortSide, WetSide, SkateSide and AdventureSide facilities.
We thank everyone for their ideas and suggestions and look forwarding to seeing the community enjoying ‘SplashSide’ after it is finished in coming months.
