Floating inflatable fun park with ecological twist to open near Christchurch

A new aqua fun park not only aims to bring a summer of fun to Kaiapoi but will also teach children about ecology. The WHōW charitable trust has been granted consent to operate a 160-metre inflatable fun park on Courtenay Lake in the town just north of Christchurch. Kaikanui Aqualand opened on November 27th, 2021, and will run until the end of March 2022. It has consent to operate from October to March each year for the next three years. The aqua park has been six years in the making and is a transitional project to build support for the trust’s other main project – the development of a whitewater, surf, and cable wake park next to the Kaiapoi River in the east regeneration area. A single 50-minute session at the fun park will cost $30, but WHōW vice chairman Jason Mill said a youth price would soon be available, as well as early-bird specials. He said children from low-decile schools across the area would be offered the chance to play at the park for free. They would also be given an ecology lesson at the same time, and would have the opportunity to plant trees around the lake. About 1000 trees will be planted each summer, Mill said, and the aim was to leave the lake in a better condition than it is now. Mill said the lake water had been regularly tested since January 2021 and was completely safe to swim in. Testing will continue throughout summer three times a week, and children will be able to carry out testing themselves as part of school trips. Aqualand director Mark Holder said it had taken a long time to get to this point, but he was excited to be able to finally deliver something for the community. The attraction would be a positive addition for Kaiapoi because it would bring more visitors to the town, he said. (2021/12, 203G)
