Park for all opens with a big splash
A NEW accessible, one-of-a-kind splash park is now officially open at the Lake Tinaroo Holiday Park, and is set to be a major tourism drawcard for the region.
The multi-million dollar upgrade includes an accessible splash pad, a heated spa, a Queensland-first rejuvenating spray and a block of new villas.
Behind the upgrades are caravan park owners Lachlan Farquharson and Shane Bettini, who had a vision for a holiday getaway that could be accessed by everyone.
“We have really gone above and beyond in terms of accessibility, and we basically wanted everyone to be able to have fun,” Mr Farquharson said.
“In the pool, we have an accessible ramp, and then we have three rejuvenating sprays, and we are the first ones in Queensland to have them, and the area of the pool is 90 centimetres deep.
“So, if you are in a wheelchair, you can position yourself underneath it, and then you can get a therapeutic spray, and if you are able-bodied, you can just stand up in that area and have a nice massage on your back and shoulders.”
The new upgrades will be officially opened this Saturday, with a big pool party set to take place from 9am at the park.
“We are definitely really excited about it all,” Mr Farquharson said.
