New water feature a good addition for summer?

The team Reporter from Whangarei Leader

Whangarei's new Town Basin Park will be getting an interactive water feature.

It'll have water jets and colourful light displays illuminating the park at night. Is this a good addition in time for summer? What else would you like to see at the park?
