New water play areas open to the public at popular Maylands Waterland

New water play areas at family favorite Maylands Waterland finally opened to the public on Wednesday.

A giant motorcycle frog water sculpture, waterfall, wading pool, paddling pool, dump bucket and water stream are some of the new features built as part of a $4.4 million renovation of the popular parkland.

“The whole playground is new and more exciting because there are water features and you can also learn about frogs,” said seven-year-old Chelsea Nguyen.

The destination playground is expected to prove popular for events and gatherings, with a bookable upstairs area complete with benches, grills and a kitchenette.

A commemorative swan mosaic from the original facility has been retained in a nod to its legacy.

Turning on the water elements completes the first stage of the modernization of the parkland, after the dry areas were refurbished and put into operation this winter.

Dry area features include an artist created play spider, wooden tunnel with climbing wall, accessible basket swing, junior and main play areas and more.

Bayswater Mayor Filomena Piffaretti said she was proud the city had succeeded in saving Maylands Waterland for future generations.

“This facility is very dear to the hearts of many in our community who will be able to enjoy it for years to come,” she said.

The Maylands Waterland project was funded jointly by the City of Bayswater and the federal government.

Phase two of the redevelopment plans will include the addition of a deep water pool and additional play equipment, but is subject to future funding.
