Water park campaign takes off online

A CAMPAIGN has been launched to bring a water park to Toowoomba.

The Facebook page Toowoomba Needs A Water Park was started at the weekend and an e-petition has been launched.

The petition urges Toowoomba Regional Council to "build a water park" and it already has more than 270 signatures.

"Toowoomba is a rapidly growing city," the petition reads.

"We have one public swimming pool. We are hoping to get a water park opened in Toowoomba.

"One that can be utilised in both summer and winter.

"Pourer buckets, slides, and shallow enough to wade in.

"During winter months the area can be utilised as a playground, scooter riding, roller blades, picnics etc."

The Facebook page attracted more than 200 likes in just an hour. This morning it had 370.
