A summer playground dream for Brisbane Kids, this playground and water park will save any parent’s sanity on a hot summer afternoon.
Wynnum Kids Water Park & Playground – The Fun
With facilities like a playground, accessible toilets, shelter, nearby cafes, bike racks, parking and bike paths, Wynnum Kids Water Park and Playground has all of the practicalities sorted out. The inclusion of an unfenced playground, water park and wading pool means that there is something for every age group and every possibility for fun. The wading pool fills with sea water at high tide, making it a safer environment for Brisbane Kids to explore than the ocean itself. A popular design feature of the water park is the whale pod waterspray, with its main attraction being that the children get sprayed by the spouting whales – FUN! This park is also right next to Pandanus beach – a sandy, calm little stretch of water, perfect for young families. The nautical themed playground features lots of climbing areas, slides, wings and a play shop. Extending from the playground along the waterfront are marked bike paths and walkways so take the bikes or scooters.
The ocean theme of this playground inspires Brisbane Kids to become sea captains and pirates, sailing the seas in search of whales, or digging in the sand for buried treasure. Trying to guess which whale will squirt water next will also keep kids amused. Brisbane Kids from far and wide will adore the masses of soldier crabs scurrying across the beach at low tide!
Wheelchair accessible toilets are located near the playground within the park. There are several shaded places to set up camp for the day around the playground, however the water park is unsheltered. The small gazebo areas, picnic tables and barbecues are clean and well maintained. There are many shops and cafes within easy walking distance for snacks and supplies. Parking is located near the playground so it’s not too far to walk and the closest bus stop is Pandanas Beach.
