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 have been here a few times now and my children just want to keep coming back time and time again. There are many playgrounds for the kids to play on and some water parks as well for endless fun. Muddy's cafe is right next to the playgrounds for the parents to have a coffee while the kids play.

Oh wow! I love this place. My 3 year old loves this place. This is a combination of multiple playgrounds, all varying in age ranges, including toddlers (the toddler's playground is fenced).

This park was absolutely excellent for my 2 & 5 year olds. There was so much for them to do. They spent about 2 hours playing on the playground and riding the flying fox. We ordered lunch from the kiosk (which wasn't anything special but was fine) and then the kids played for another hour in the water spouts! If... More

A fun area for small kids to play, they can run around like crazy in and out of the water spouts. Helped my young one get used to playing in water.

Spurting bubblers, an array of equipment for children of various ages and development stages, with their safety considered, somewhere to get a coffee - we would come back to Cairns just for this park.

fantastic fun for all ages of kids. so much to do here - you could spend the whole day there if you wanted to. Also close to a great skate park with a shaded bowl and big areas to scoot and skate.
