Muddy's playground is open every day of the year between 9am and 7pm (including public holidays and weekends). Sections of Muddy's are closed for maintenance on Tuesday and Thursday mornings until noon. Even when maintenance works are being carried out, Council aims to have at least half the playground available for use. Muddy's is a modern, fun, safe, splash playground and parkland. It incorporates active, passive, interactive and educational facilities with a combination of play equipment. Muddy's playground is themed "Life in Trinity Bay" and the playground includes water play areas plus a flying fox, sound chimes, track ride, rope bridge, slides, play houses, story telling areas, see-saw, trick track and puzzle games. Please note that the disabled-use Liberty Swing uses the MLAK national keying system. For access please ask at Muddy's cafe. Muddy's has two toilet facilities one at the north end of Muddy's near the cafe and one at the southern end of Muddy's. Muddy's has barbecues, picnic tables and an on-site cafe.

Great for keeping kids entertained, with decent kiosk next door :-)

Didn't use the facilities, just walked around, very popular. Also has a kiosk, open for breakfast, lunch and dinner.

Can unwind and have a coffee while the kids play to the magic ocean backdrop. The kids area is well contained from passing esplanade traffic.

We came here almost every day of our holiday in cairns as our toddler loved it so much. The little kids area is fenced off which is reassuring. Our son loved the fountains too and we had lots of fun there. Well set out with lots of shade.
