Good for kids and thats about it. Thought it might be a good place to cool off but the water was too hot to make a difference. Slides are the best thing there really. Good for families to entertain kids etc

Run by the YMCA, this water park is open to the public and is free. There are three water slides (one a double-tuber), a water playground and a large, shallow lagoon pool. Great for a hot day! The shop does a roaring trade in hot chips and ice creams. Picnic tables are provided so you can bring your own food.

Plenty to do - 3 huge slides which are well regulated by the life guards, big splash area with smaller slides and equipment and large pool. Really great facility with kiosk and toilets, heaps of picnic spots and BBQs. There is also a dry under... More

Seems like great little place but left with sour taste in mouth due to Lifesavers on duty closing glad the pool because they would rather gather at one end and chat than actually lifesave.

Took the family for some fun on the water slide and pool ...... We all joined in and tried all the slides then finished off the day with a relaxing swim in the pool. We brought along a lunch basket and sat in the shade and ate. Followed by an ice cream cone then a relaxing sit down in the... More

Great place to visit for families and it is free. Excellent facilities with bbq's, cafe and shaded areas as well as the wet areas. Three slides were great and different speeds. My 10 year old loved the water playground and the pool was massive and loads of room. Locals are extremely lucky to have this facility on their door step.

Has anyone ever been to green fields water park in Bali. It Costs you a fortune and it is poorly executed version of the Leanyer water park . Leanyer is Free and is 10 time better than greenfields

Love this place. Fun for adults, kids and toddlers. Grandparents and parents can sit and chill. The toddler have so much fun in the dry and wet playgrounds. It's paradise for the kids and it's free. It would be nice if there is a cafe. Definetely recommend to visit this place and a place to come again and again.
