A SPLASH park in Noreuil Park is being proposed by a new team contending for the Albury Council election.
Osteopath Ross Hamilton will lead the group with former Border Mail editor Di Thomas his No.2 and then agricultural worker Emily Grellman, Thurgoona resident Lucie Wallis and Mr Hamilton's wife and dressmaker Claire Hamilton.
An aquatic play hub, using Murray River water and within sight of the Mitta Mitta Canoe Club, has been floated by Mr Hamilton as a benefit for the city and young families.
"Removed from the river you actually create a safe environment for young children to play, where you can actually have parents take a moment to relax," he said.
"It's also a fairly affordable upgrade to the Murray River Experience that council has been planning.
"The (splash) park at Bright came in at around a $1 million thankfully there have been budget savings realised in the Murray River Experience by council recently of roughly a million dollars.

"This should be an entirely achievable project within the next term of council."
Mr Hamilton, who moved to Albury from Melbourne in 2016, said his team represented those that had adopted the Border city as their home as well as a "new generation".
Mr Hamilton said his team was independent and his previous campaigns had "taught him that not every politician does their homework".
"Something that I can promise I will take to Albury City Council is the ability to read my briefings, do my homework, consult widely, and turn up for my meetings," he said.
"The circumstances surrounding last time were unfortunate but as it turns out....it was the best decision at the time just as this is the best decision this time," she said.
Ms Thomas helped Cr Mack in his 2019 Farrer bid.
Cr Mack is still to confirm he will renominate and was cagey when asked on Wednesday.
"From my perspective, when is it time to leave?" Cr Mack said.
"There's always something you can do next, but that's what I've got to determine, whether the timings of everything else come into that discussion.
"So I haven't really said no, I haven't ruled it out completely.
"But put it this way, I'm not really worried about it at this point."
