Summer has finally arrived in Brisbane. And with it, sunshiny days and scorching temperatures. Now is the perfect time to slip, slop, slap and take advantage of Brisbane's many free and wonderful water parks.
We enjoy taking the kids to Sandgate pool. There is a great pool for young kids with water features and a couple of slides. There is some shade and if you are lucky you may even score a sunlounge! Being on the foreshore it is a beautiful location. Just adjacent to the pool is a playground and great area for kite flying with fish and chips just across the road
Rocks riverside park, 5 counihan road, seventeen mile rocks is a great park for kids, there is water area for young children featuring small pools that flow downhill into each other fully shaded, a large rope climbing frame and flying fox for the older kids and a park nestled in a giant sandpit for everyone. Plenty of BBQ's and seating, walking paths, scooter paths and situated on the brisbane river, toilets available and a basketball 1 on 1 court. Fabulous place. Love it. Helen, Oxley
Robelle Domain is great, very spacious, lovely water playground for the kids. We went there for a family birthday celebration, and everyone thought it was terrific.http://www.greaterspringfield.com.au/robelle-domain.php If you ever get to Hervey Bay, they have the best water park there also.
there is a free water park and pool located in the center of the city which includes sand (beach) and kids play aera.
