Free, fun, and in the sun
Bring the kids to the Riverwalk Village Park in Werribee for an afternoon in the free water play space. Located in the Riverwalk development near the Werribee river, the 1.4 hectare park also features a playground, basketball court, barbeque and picnic facilities for your enjoyment.

If you don't plan on getting wet yourself, well you probably will, but it's probably something you won't regret on a summer's day. There also are a number of benches and covered seating areas, but it's best to bring along a portable camping chair if you have one so you can change position and keep an eye on the kids without having to grow an extra pair of eyes on the back of your head or keep craning your neck to get a better view.

Lots of different water features to enjoy!

As you can tell from the pictures, the spray from the water play space creates a fine, cooling mist for the adults but wreaks havoc on the camera lens!

If you prefer somewhere quieter for your little ones to play, there are shallow, wading pool areas off to the side near the sheltered seating.

Quieter, wading pool areas for your little ones.

On occasion, the park does shut down the water play features on rainy or windy days as needed. Just check for updates on Riverwalk's Facebook page and enjoy!
