Was a diving platform part of the design??
Is is a safe design???
Perhaps the million or so spent on engineering costs involved with the auxiliary spillway in Colliery Dams Park was not out of line, if designing a safe, user-friendly diving platform to enter the refreshing waters of Colliery Dams Park was part of the package.
Clearly these young folk appreciate the new feature added to their park which I am sure would not result in any cracked coconuts as wet feet slip on concrete. Unlike Westwood Lake Park there are no lifeguards on duty in this park, which at one time did have at least one guard on duty over the summer months many years ago.
I wonder if lifeguards had to be cut out as a means of being able to continue to pay middle and upper management some of those attractive wage and benefit packages they have managed over recent years?
