The Fraser Coast Regional Council is currently accepting submissions from the public to name the facility.

Construction is expected to be completed by June.

Council said Anzac Park is already a popular outdoor space in the Heritage City and the new water play area and all abilities playground will make it even more appealing to residents and visitors.

Meanwhile, Council said development is progressing well.

Construction started late last year.

The facility, which will celebrate Maryborough’s links to Mary Poppins author, P.L. Travers, will include a sensory wall, inclusive orbit element, a spoon full of sugar discharge bucket, rainbow pathways, a trampoline, waterfall, crystal fountains and a hammock.

A roller slide, cosmic cannons, spray jets, improved amenities and a new shelter with a barbecue will also feature.

P.L. Travers was born in Maryborough in 1899.

The water play area and all abilities playground is a joint initiative between council and the Queensland Government.

Government’s $3-million commitment through the COVID Works for Queensland program meant the water play area could be completed in one go rather than in stages.
