South Brisbane, Brisbane Area
Aquativity is a fun, interactive water-play park right in the heart of Brisbane's South Bank. It is especially designed to encourage families and children to come together and enjoy the outdoors. It celebrates Brisbane's close relationship with the Brisbane River.
Aquativity features educational play elements referencing the river, and helps create an early understanding of the water cycle and its preservation.
Aquativity also highlights the native fish and mammal species of mullet and dugong, the interesting pattern of the river catchments and the importance of indigenous, environmental and urban elements of relationships to the river.
Open on weekends and school holidays from 10.00 a.m. until 5.00 p.m., Aquativity also works within the existing pool system, and water is recycled for use within The Parklands.
South Bank Corporation's Water Efficiency Management Plan (WEMP) has been in place since 2001, and in this time South Bank's overall water use was reduced by 81 per cent.
