Inflatable theme park dead in the water

TWEED Shire Councillor Warren Polglase's dream of installing an inflatable fun park in Tweed's Jack Evans Boat Harbour has been officially sunk.

The idea was workshopped by councillors after Cr Polglase initially presented the idea in a council meeting last month.

But after a notice of motion calling for expressions of interest in setting up such a park again came back before council last Thursday, it was rejected 4-2.

Cr Polglase had been inspired by 'AquaSplash', an on-water obstacle course which opened in the Southport Broadwater Parklands this month.

"They're like the old-blow up castles you get at parties only it's on the water," he told The Tweed Border Mail.

"There are people in the Tweed who have the expertise and knowledge to do it."

But the debate about how to better utilise one of Tweed's most picturesque areas will continue.

Cr Katie Milne's idea for a charity-run outdoor cinema in the park was deferred for consideration until next year.
