First responder families make a big splash! | Canberra Region Activity Wrap Up

What an awesome day at a recent wellbeing activity for Canberra first responder families, enjoying the local water park together.

Thanks to the team at Big Splash for reserving a few tables and chairs under the big shady trees, which was lovely on such a warm and sunny day.

Despite the warm weather, the kids said the water was freezing! But that didn’t stop them enjoying the slides and jumping in the pool for a splash.

It was lovely to see a group of the parents socialising with each other while their kids were playing on the floating obstacle course.

An energy boost was needed after all the sliding and splashing, so hot chips, Zooper Doopers and cold drinks were enjoyed by all at lunch time.

“Nice to meet other families from the service and the kids can grow up together. Also comforting to know if my husband is out on a job I can all one of the other partners to check in.”
