Sydney May Get A Water Park
Plans were unveiled yesterday for the new $80 million water-based theme park at Prospect. While it is yet to get formal planning approval, Premier Kristina Keneally was busy selling the concept to western Sydney families. “It gives them the opportunity to get in the car, get on a bus and go to Wet ‘n Wild and have that special treat for the kids,” she said. But Prospect Heritage Trust president Brian French says while he is not against the park as such, it is in the wrong location. “An alien water fun park would be as intrusive as all the factories that have been built in the surrounding area,” he said. He says the local landscape is historic and has remained semi-agricultural since the time of early settlement.
