Fun Fact

This splashpad was designed in collaboration with First Nations artist Leanne Watson, a Dharug woman from the Burubirangal and Warmuli family groups. Leanne’s artwork highlights the connection of Dharug people to local waterways and incorporates imagery of native aquatic fauna. Her colourful art helped bring the splash pad to life.
