We love this park. My 2.5 year old has a wonderful time whenever we go to the Wynnum waterfront. During the colder weather she is happy to play in all of the different sections of the playground including climbing over the whales. When the weather warms up the 4 whales are turned on and spray water which is a fantastic way for the little ones to cool off. I have seen children of all ages enjoying the park from toddlerteens young teenagers.
this park gets quite busy in the school holidays and on weekends but the park is big enough to find a place to play.
The Wynnum wading poo; and water park is a great area to take the family.
The wading pool is enormous, about the size of a football field and about knee deep for adults. It's sea water pumped in from the bay. At one end there's a spiral slippery slide great for kids up to about 10. The floor of the pool is sand.
The water can get a little murky on busy days in summer with so many sunscreened kids. Also,there's no shade over the pool itself or over any of the seats around the edges, which is a real shame - it's concreted around the edges and it gets extremely hot. There are some trees in the adjoining parkland creating some shaded picnic areas which get occupied very quickly.
There are plenty of toilets and, I think, showers, which are unisex with plenty of space in each for multiple children.
On the other side of the large amenities block is the water park. This consists of a number of large artifical colourful boulders which have water spurting out randomly. The boulders are really big - too big for my 2 year old to climb, so this area is not really suitable for littlies.
The water park is next to a large playground with an enormous spiderweb, as well as swings and other kit, including a littlies playground for babies and toddlers.
There are lots of picnic tables under shady trees and electric bbqs. This area gets ectremely busy on weekends and public holidays, with people coming for breakfast, brunch and lunch bbqs and picnics, so arrive early if you're planning to snaffle a table.
Across the road there is a choice of 2 large fish and chip shops to either eat in or take away from, offering a wide range of food and snacks, not just fish and chips. A Mr Whippy van is usually there on weekends as well.
Where else can you go on a Sunday afternoon and feel the sea breeze, smell the fish and chips, and hear the laughter of your child. The Water park is so popular and the smiles on your kids face is all you need. Outside in the fresh air, most of the park is shaded, so many areas to play and picnic.
You also get to walk along the foreshore, take the dog and make friends. Wynnum is completly amazing a small village so close to the city yet you don't even feel like you are in the city.
