Porirua’s new splash pad designed for fun

Work has begun on construction of Porirua's new splash pad.

The splash pad is being built at Aotea Lagoon and is due to open this summer.

Making the biggest splash will be a massive 6m high water bucket dumper called the supersplash.


Detailed plans have been unveiled for the 250m2 splash pad that will be built on the Number 1 lawn near the public BBQ facilities at Aotea Lagoon.

The $880,000 splash pad will feature three bays aimed at toddlers, families and teens and the water features will work in random patterns to keep the fun flowing. The water will be treated and recirculated. 

The toddler bay will include low-level water jellies, misters, sprays and a water bug they can sit underneath, surrounded by a curtain of water.

The family bay will include jets of water in a variety of shapes and sizes, a rainbow series of curved poles that shoot out misty water, and a rainforest that will pour water from three tall leafy structures.

The teen bay will have spray cannons, in-ground water jets and the massive supersplash dumper bucket.

Construction started in early August 2017, and is expected to take about 12 weeks.
