NO more waiting for water: The Maylands Waterland will finally be wet again with the taps to be turned on this October 5 at 11am.
The facility had to be closed in 2019 due to old age and Bayswater council originally hoped the renovations would be done by the end of summer last year.
Supply problems, labour shortages, and crummy weather set that target back by a summer but now stage 1 is complete, and the splash pads, waterfall, frog water sculpture, wading pool and water creek are now ready to flow for families.
Mayor Filomena Piffaretti’s heading down to turn on the tap for the October 5 family fun day.
“I’m so proud the City of Bayswater has been able to save Maylands Waterland for future generations,” Cr Piffaretti siad.
“This facility is very close to the hearts of many people in our community, who can now continue to enjoy it for years to come.”
Stage 2 of the redevelopment involves new versions of the old deeper pools, but for now it remains a pipedream as more external funds are needed.
