The BIG4 Great Lakes at Forster-Tuncurry has long been known for its great family friendly facilities and commitment to continually improving the guest experience, and this continues with the unveiling of planned improvements to the main park pool. 

Check out the new plans!

Installed over 12 years ago, the existing pool at the centre of the park has always been a popular space for guests to cool down in the warmer months, or enjoy gentle exercise in the heated waters over the winter. Park Manager Margaret Shannon said that while the facility remained popular with all guests; the improvements were in response to the guest expectation of more engaging activities. “When it comes to holiday-makers; we are conscious of striking a balance between a relaxed and enjoyable experience with having facilities that also keep our younger guests entertained. We are confident that the planned pool refurbishment, along with plans to install a second pool, will be welcome news to our guests.” 

The new pool improvements will include three separate “zones” within the pool setting. The existing shallow splash pool will be upgraded with soft fall rubber, a mini slide and two new interactive waterjets, and will be aimed at toddlers and children up to around 6 years of age. Older children will be will catered to with a 15m enclosed waterslide and waterjets at the southern end of the pool, while the northern end features a graduated beach style entry and spa seats for all to enjoy.

Work begins on the new pool area on the 9th August, and at this stage it is hoped the new improvements will be completed by the end of September. The pool upgrades will be complemented by a second lap pool that the park is currently installing.
