Bouncy trampolining park set for Hervey Bay?

A HERVEY Bay factory could be transformed into a bouncy paradise for kids, if a businessman's plan comes to fruition.

Currently an outdoor mobile trampolining park, Jump Park owner Sean Houston has decided Hervey Bay would be the perfect permanent home for the bouncing business.

He said the area was appealing due to the limited activities available for youth.

"We're going to bring something for the community," he said.

The park would feature inter-connected Olympic trampolines with an airbag to jump and flip on.

It would also include trampoline dodge ball, inflatable obstacle courses and activities to cater for the whole family.

Mr Houston said the centre had potential to be successful in Hervey Bay.

"We are Australian-owned and -operated with our core values being community-minded and we are looking forward to becoming part of the Hervey Bay community," he said.

He said the youth of the region would be able to leave their computers and enjoy a cardio workout on his trampolines.

Events councillor Darren Everard said any business would be considered if they wanted to come to the region.

"I'd welcome any activity that wants to come and play on the Fraser Coast," he said.

"If people want to get out and get active - that's great."

The public has been invited to comment on the development application that would allow Jump Park to set up a centre at 229 Maryborough-Hervey Bay Rd in Urraween.

The public comment period for the proposed development will run until June29.
