    While this is a great spot to take the kids, with a cafe, lots of open space, bike/walking tracks and of course the water play area, commonsense has been overlooked. There is very little shade to sit under in close proximity to the water play area, and of greatest concern is the slipperyness of the surface of the waterplay area itself. I was there with family yesterday and observed many children, particularly toddlers, slip and fall backwards hitting their heads on the concrete.

    We are visiting from Sydney and my girls have loved playing here in the beautiful Queensland weather, I do agree with other comments that there is not a lot of shade and more is needed. However my girls had a blast especially my 4 year old who gets around with the help of a walker she was able to walk in the water and under the jets. All in all a great park but needs some more seating near the water bit and more shade needed.

    there is no problem with the shade or the concrete anymore.
    There are lots of shade cloths up. If it is a busy day, bring an umbrella, because there will be a lot of people there.
    the concrete has been matted (a rubber grip matting is down). Sure a kid may slip over, but that is normal for kids. They wont hurt themselves too much cause the matting will help them bounce.

    Great day
    Great equipment
    and super bbq areas.
