Located in the Brisbane Valley in the Somerset region, about two hour’s drive west of Brisbane, is the small town of Toogoolawah.
Toogoolawah is rich in history and is well known for its dairy farming and the train station in which the town got its name. The region produced a condensed milk factory which successfully operated throughout the boom of the dairy industry from 1900 to 1920’s.
Somerset Regional Council was successful in gaining funding for the design and construction a new zero-depth splashpad, to be constructed next to the existing Toogoolawah Swimming Pool to create an iconic attraction and asset for the community.
Playscape Creations designed a custom splashpad for Council taking from the town’s long history in dairy farming and namesake train station. This included a milk carton dumping bucket which was set along a train track crossing. Other play elements included blaster cannons, water arch, Y tree and numerous inground jets.
