Brisbane Parks With Water Play Areas

by Sally Foster (follow)
Free water play on a hot day

It is seriously hot outside in Brisbane at the moment. Truthfully it is hot for most of the year. One of the best ways to cool down, especially with kids, is water play. But not all of us are lucky enough to have a pool. And it isn't always affordable to pay for public pools.

These playgrounds all have great water play areas or features that are perfect for a hot day. Best of all, they are all free.

Hercules Street Park, Hamilton

Hercules Street Park is a brand new playground which has opened that has a great water play area. There are big showers that shoot water up from the ground. It has rubber matting so kids can run in and out of the water. Not much shade though, so be sure to bring a hat and sunscreen.

Location: 40 Remora Street, Hamilton

Ascot Park, Ascot

This small and adorable playground has a small water play feature of a big old fashioned tap that kids can turn on. The water runs down a little stream with rocks and it is great for small kids to get a bit wet on a hot day.

Location: 93 Kitchener Road, Ascot

Livvi's Place Playground, Newport

Livvi's place is a new nautical themed playground with excellent tunnel slides at Newport, right on the water. Nearby to the fully fenced playground is a water play area where jets shoot water that kids can run through. It is not shaded though so be sure to bring a hat and sunscreen.

Location: 39 Lakeview Promenade, Newport

Rocks Riverside, Seventeen Mile Rocks

Rocks Riverside has a huge and awesome water play area. As well as a pool that is ankle deep, there are streams and creeks, some slides, jets shooting water from the ground and lots of places to splash and play. It is great for kids of all ages and next door to a fully fenced toddler playground, big playground for the older kids and a flying fox.

Location: 5 Counihan Road, Seventeen Mile Rocks

Whale Park, Wynnum

Wynnum Water Park, or Whale Park as it is fondly called, is hugely popular with the local kids. There is the free wading pool on the foreshore with a slide feature that is great for a splash. Then there is the water play area which has lots of jets shooting water from the big whale on the ground.

Location: Wynnum Esplanade, Wynnum

Flagstone Adventure Park

Flagstone Adventure Park has a water play park area that is almost brand new, with a 10m climbable treehouse, waterfalls and a ‘zero depth’ water course with jets, blasters and bubblers. It is unbelievable that it is free considering how much is there.

Ferny Grove Aqua Park

Another recently opened and completely free water park is the Ferny Grove Aqua Park. It features a splash pad with spray tunnel, various ground sprays and misters, water cannons, tipping buckets and an interactive water table. It is wheelchair accessible with lots of seating for parents and caregivers to sit back and watch the fun, as well as being well shaded.
