Rock Pool bans foul language
ROCKHAMPTON mother of two Helen Kuhnel supports Rock Pool Water Park initiatives to ban swearing.
The concerned parent was enjoying a day out at the rock pool yesterday with her son and his friend when asked about her views on the subject.
"I don't like it myself, and I don't want to hear it here,'' she said.
"We come here for a nice time out, and we don't want to listen to that rubbish.''
The Rock Pool Water Park has quickly taken steps to stamp out foul language and aggressive behaviour on the premises after some minor incidents involving youths who were told to move on.
General manager Bjorn Prince said staff and management wanted people to show respect for other patrons of the park.
"Patrons who do not show respect will not be tolerated,'' he said.
"Staff and management are doing their best to maintain a family friendly environment.
"It is still the hottest place in Rockhampton to cool down.''
Manager of Rockhampton Tourist and Business Information Barbara Harwood said the water park was a great family friendly attraction, and had made a huge difference to Rockhampton.
"Residents enjoy it, visitors are staying extra days to enjoy it with their families, and country people are coming into town so their families can enjoy it too,'' she said.
"I congratulate the water park, and give them full marks for evicting people who use foul language and spoil it for others.''
Mr Prince urges patrons to speak to management if inappropriate behaviour is spotted within the water park.
