I f you enjoy a walk along side the river this perfect, car parking at one end and a good walk path along side river. Pool average. Be careful not to hang around at night, undesirable types seem to hang around.

Riverway is a natural attraction that also has many other features including the free lagoon pools for swimming, large grassy parks for picnics and Barbeques, art gallery and function space, and even a great cafe overlooking the pool area... and not to mention the sporting fields and stadium area. To me, the best thing about Riverway is Saturday morning Parkrun,... More

Fantastic place to take the kids for the day or the weekend! The lagoon is child friendly with life savers as well. There is a café for a break between swims. One of the nicest pools we have been to in a long time.

Riverway precinct has so much to offer. Its great for kids who want to utilise the pool in summer months everyday at no cost. Its public dollars well spent. The pool is well designed and has beuatiful views of the river, and is quite secure with lifeguards around during school holidays

We took our two kids aged 17 months & 2 1/2 and they loved it. Was an effort to get them out of the water.

One of the best free family activities going, multiple pools, great view of the river complete with turtles to watch and a cafe for Mum's and Dads. It's a winner.

Riverway is a lovely place to go and relax. It has a great amount of parkland for kicking a ball around, good amount of free BBQs & tables & chairs to eat at. The pools are great too, a bit hot during the warm months but that's to be expected. The paths are great too around the river, definitely worth... More

Lovely little spot in Townsville where there is a fantastic 4km track you can walk, run or cycle. There are 2 huge swimming pools that you access for free where there are lifeguards on duty.BBQ areas, playgrounds, lots of things to do and all well shaded from the hot Townsville weather.

The riverway is probably our most visited feature in Townsville. It is about a 10 minute drive for us, and the parking is good. The spaces aren't too jammed, and i have not yet lost any paint from our cars here. The facilities are great, from swimming to running or feeding the ducks and turtles. The kids love all of... More
