FENCES are coming down and Maylands Waterland has its dry reopening this Friday June 10 with the waterworks ready to be switched back on when the weather warms.
The aged aqua park was closed due to decrepitude in 2019, and Bayswater council had high hopes the much-needed renovations would be done for the end of 2021 summer.
But like many Covid-era projects it was delayed by global supply problems and labour shortages.
The opening date was set back to the 2022 Easter holidays but that date also slipped.
The major works have been completed and the dryland bits that’ll include the park, playground, picnic and BBQ areas are set to open this week. Since now we’re in the cold season when the park would traditionally be closed, the water elements will stay switched off until spring.
