  • Although I am the winter road, also stop to play some. The child is not allowed to play, even adults can live. The park is very big, the side is the coast, very comfortable to write, the picnic will also enjoy

  • Good place for kids. Will be even better in warmer months. Can park across the road in Australian fair shopping centre with 3 hours free.
  • What an awesome place. We came here for a look and were not aware of all the water activities. There is a protected beach, floating obstacle course and a kids water play area. My 3 year old was in heaven at the water play area. It was fantastic. Being school holidays it was busy but there was also a dancing singing pirate for entertainment also life guards. Highly recommended!
  • Come here for a lovely day out with your Kids!. This little water park is a delight for all ages. There is plenty of parking and it runs alongside the Broadwater Parklands. Bring bikes and scooters too!
  • Great spot for the kids
  • Excellent place kids love it.
