The BHP Water Park is situated at the primary entry point to Elizabeth Quay, opposite the Elizabeth Quay Train Station. This free community space includes an interactive water feature that uses spray jets and feature lighting for an immersive experience.

The Pinjah artwork at BHP Water ParkThe bottom of the water park features a large mosaic artwork, a collaboration between local Fremantle artists, designer Sandra Hill and ceramic artist Jenny Dawson. Named Pinjah – the Whadjuk Noongar word for tadpole – the mosaic depicts water winding its way through the playground as well as representations of the two remaining lakes in the greater Perth area, Hyde Park Lake and Lake Monger.

The Royal Life Saving WA Workforce Solutions team have been operating and maintaining the BHP Water Park since 2017, visiting the site at Elizabeth Quay daily as part of a strict maintenance schedule.

During the winter months the crew visit the site twice per day to maintain the water quality and general operations of the facility. This increases to three times per day during the summer months when the weather is warmer and more little feet are darting between the water jets!

Royal Life Saving WA’s Senior Manager Workforce Solutions, Travis Doye, explains the importance and flow-on effect of this contract for other Royal Life Saving programs. “We are so proud of the work that this team performs on behalf of Royal Life Saving WA, as this enterprise helps to fund our Talent Pool program and provides an opportunity for Royal Life Saving WA to engage and employ increasing numbers of young Pool Operators.”

The Workforce Solutions crew also maintain the water parks at Yagan Square, Hyde Park, Kingsway Aquatic Playspace and Kinkuna Adventure Playground. If you’d like more information about our pool and aquatic play area maintenance service, get in touch with us via the link below.
