Rockhampton councillors "depressed" by state of rock pool

A RECENT trip to the Rockpool Waterpark left several councilors "very depressed" by what they saw, according to Mayor Margaret Strelow.

Ms Strelow told Tuesday's parks and recreation committee meeting that she still had a dream to re-install a slide at the rock pool.

"Councillors have really understood that we need to pull out all the stops to do that," she said.

At one stage the waterpark enjoyed three waterslides, an 18-hole mini-golf course, blaster boats, rock climbing and pool inflatables.

Currently the 50 metre pool and wading pool are open for public use while council identifies necessary works to complete.

Council purchased the waterpark in October 2012 for $1.5 million.
