Not much work has been done in the past. It is actually a disgrace. Council is trying to sort out the problem. They have a long way to go.

Riverway is a lovely relaxing place to walk, run, ride, picnic or just sit by the river and feed the ducks and turtles. I like to sit on the banks and watch the sun rise on the Thuringowa Drive side, or walk over the Weir Bridge to the Riverside Garden side and watch the sun set near the bridge we... More

The whole riverbank has been carefully landscaped and great free swimming opportunities with on duty staff. Families can enjoy hours of play and relaxation for free which is a wonderful thing.

Looks good and on the river. Free swimming but exercise caution. There is a lot of chlorine in the pool and many have suffered with eye and ear aches from swimming in here. Beautiful parklike surroundings with free barbeques. Has security because of problems with out of control kids.

A wonderful location for the family to enjoy a swim in the pool or to walk along or ride along the paths along the rivers. A wonderful area to relax.

The pools were fabulous I only wish it were sunnier. Even in light rain we enjoyed walking the long river walk (stroller friendly) but a lack of bathrooms and larger play structures was disappointing.
