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.

I wish so much I had something like this when I was a child, it looked like so fun could be had here and on my daily walk I noticed they were cleaning and gardening this area daily. A great place for the little ones with a cafe for the adults to sit and enjoy a drink or a bite... More

OUr 3 kids aged 3, 6 and 8 had a ball - the playground, the water fountains and the big fish. What a fabulous spot for a free playground - we loved it.

My kids saw this as we drove past and nagged until we got there. They weren't disappointed but started to be creative after awhile as it was catering to the younger ones, (mine 7 & 9). They still had their swimmers on from the lagoon - it is called Muddies for a reason!

Muddy's Playground is a wonderful place for children to visit. There are many attractions for children of all ages and give them the space to have fun. Their balancing skills will be challenged and water jets will keep them entertained for hours. New friendships will be forged with other children. No one will be bored. There is a takeaway but...
