Saw this mentioned in a tiny paragraph of tourist brochure and thought we would check it out. Was expecting some sort of river swimming area, but was really surprised when we discovered it was a swimming pool.

Facilities include seating, BBQ’s, chang facilities, the Arts Centre and a cafe/kiosk. There is also a walking trail that follows the river, but... More

A fantastic park with free pools and changerooms etc, a real credit to Townswille, many other councils should go and see what can be done. Well worth a visit to cool off on a hot day.

We visited Riverway today thinking it was a place to have a walk, dip our feet in the "lagoons" and take a nap under a tree. Little did we know Riverwalk has massive FREE swimming pools so be sure to bring your bathers!!! There's a supermarket, big w (variety store) and fast food nearby so you can pick up a... More

The pool at riverways is suitable for all ages from toddlers to the elderly and being patrolled by qualified lifeguards is... More

Close to all amenities to suit our tastes, nice quiet walking trails along the river and close enough to the city centre for it not be a burden to go into the city.

What an amazing place! Free pools, lovely parklands, BBQ's - you can hang with friends or family and enjoy a day out without paying a fortune. The lagoon area is incredible. The Greek Festival they hold there each year is one of the best I've ever been to. It's free, the food and entertainment amazing, and the backdrop of the... More
