Giant Mud Crab - Broadwater water park - gold coast

Water play at the Park – Broadwater Parklands, Gold Coast QLD

Water play sea creatures come to life at Broadwater Parklands

Natureworks manufactured and installed a series of true to life local sea creatures with spurt and spray features. They now dot the shallow rapids water-park at the Broadwater Parklands on Gold Coast.

Collectively the sea life characters provide a functional, sturdy and attractive playground for thousands of children to adore all year round.

Animals at the water playground

The playground items installed include:

  • The oversized mud crab stands centre stage for older aged children to climb upon and play with the streaming water jets spraying upwards to the sky.
  • The high detailed finish of the loggerhead turtle is a popular sit upon feature with a 6-metre spray jet extending from its mouth.
  • The cute finely dressed fur seal pup whose whiskers have become whisker-jets is a popular sit upon character that adds fun and warmth to the site.
  • The spotted eagle ray showcases its detailed and unique skin pattern adding a touch of class and natural sea-life wonder.
  • The brightly coloured octopus reveals its true to life underside suction cups, adding texture and depth to this finely detailed sculpture.
  • The dusky flathead is a life cast off a very large flathead that every fisherman dreams of catching and is nestled in the shade near the edge of the pool.

Nature-based play sculptures

These nature-based playground items showcase only a few pieces of Natureworks’  extensive library of highly detailed animal replicas. All sculptures have been specifically adapted so as to meet the Australian Playground Standards with anti-slip finishes and integrally coloured in polyester gel-coats, so as to ensure the longevity of the finishes and to allow safe play experiences.
