    OK have to ask – what does WOW stand for?

    Council Pools – These holidays I’ve take my kids (ages 12, 11 and 2) to some of the local pools. A couple of good ones are Albany Creek Leisure Centre – worth the drive from the southside and the Sleemans Centre at Chandler. Both have a water slide and young kids area. Sleemans is also indoors which make it great regardless of weather conditions outside. Both are also reasonably priced
    Both are defifnitely places to visit many times over.

    Best pools for kids we have found is Chermside pools. Has great water slides included. Heaps of seating and great kiosk at very reasonable prices. Definately worth the drive even from the southside

    We had a family day last Saturday at Robelle Domain @ Springfield Lakes. Absolutely brilliant park for kids of all ages. The only downfall was there is not enough covered areas/shaded areas, so my advise is take a shade shelter.
