Tusmore Park Wading Pool Upgrade
The Tusmore Park wading pool has been popular with families, particularly those with toddler-aged children, for many years. However, at more than 50 years old it reached the end of its useful life and is currently undergoing a complete refurbishment.
In recent times, closures of the pool have become more frequent due to the ageing infrastructure, its design and a number of other factors which contribute to health related risks.
Following the opportunity for the community to provide feedback to help Burnside Council determine the future of this space, exciting new plans were revealed earlier this year. The community’s preferred design was Option 2, which is a full wading pool with an additional ‘creek’ style section.
Construction has begun and Burnside Council expect the project will be completed early in 2022, just in time for some late summer paddling.
