I only discovered this fabulous park recently through an advertisement placed by the Council’s Cool Parramatta scheme. Cool Parramatta have launched a campaign that helps to raise awareness of all these great water parks in Parramatta with the goal to help kids stay cool whilst still enjoying the outdoors. If you want to find out more then Parramatta Council have a website called ‘Cool Parramatta’ (you can just google it) with lots of information and cool tips on where people can go when it gets really hot outside. From the website you can get information about cool places to go to such as James Ruse reserve water playground, local swimming pools, libraries, festivals and lots more plus top tips for staying cool and safe in the summer.

Today Cool Parramatta were offering a FREE ice cream or slushy. Kids were so happy and so was I to discover yet another great new park.
