Adding value to the $12 million Flagstone Regional Recreation Park, the water feature is already open to the public ahead of the launch.

The launch will include Flipside Circus performances and workshops, with a trapeze to be available for children.

The world-famous Dead Puppet Society and their interactive mechanical pelicans will also make an appearance.

Flagstone developer Peet and Logan City Council worked together to make the water park a reality.

Peet CEO and managing director Brendan Gore said residents were given an exclusive sneak peak of the facility and an opportunity to water test the park.

"This innovative water playground features a 10-metre climbable tree house water feature, tree-shaped waterfalls, and a zero depth water course with jets, blasters and bubbles to keep the community cool this summer," he said.

Logan City Council acting CEO Silvio Trinca said the partnership with Peet delivered a superb family-friendly facility.

"As well as being a great addition to the booming suburb, it is also another reason for visitors to come and spend a fun day in Logan," he said.

Jordan MP Charis Mullen said the water park would attract locals and visitors alike.

"It was very popular (on Friday) and the school holidays haven't even started but there are already so many kids down there and some parents," she said.

Peet's general manager of development Michael Stone put the water park to the test on Friday, December 13.

Mr Stone said the water park was a great option for families looking to escape a 30 degree day.

"We are fully committed to build community facilities like this. We have got 20 odd new families moving in every month so it is a very fast growing part of south-east Queensland," he said.

The official launch will be held on Saturday, December 21 from 12pm and 6pm at the Flagstone Regional Recreational Park, Flagstonian Drive.
