Ideal place for the family, free entry and the kids love it there, Snacks can be expensive so it may pay to take your own. Well worth a visit

How great is this park! Oh, and it is FREE! We watched the final light show before it closed for the winter months and it was fun, fun, fun! Kids had a ball - will certainly visit again and again!

The eco-friendly water park is a combination of educational facts and exhibits alongside fabulous water fountains, jets and spouts. The park is a zero-depth water attraction, that is there are no pools, all the water fun is provided by the spraying/pouring of water. On the day of my visit there were very few people enjoying the facility as it was... More

The kids had a fantastic time here, so relaxing for the parents too, as plenty of seating to watch the kids run around through the water fountains, they had great fun. We went later in the day, as it gets pretty busy there. Then on the Friday evening they had a light show, you can't go in the water while... More

The kids loved playing in the water (for free!) during the day. We wanted to stay for the evening light show, but there isn't anywhere nearby to eat. (We were visiting the town and did not have a rental car, so getting anywhere far would have required a taxi.) Ultimately, we walked to a grocery store (that closed at 5pm!)... More

A free water park with lots of seating and separated play areas for the little and big kids. The opening hours seem unusually restricted, e.g. opening at on 12PM on Tuesday during school holidays, so check the web site before you go, however the park is staffed when it is open. There is also a surfing machine hidden behind the... More

I came across this quite by accident and was pleasantly surprised. The beach was miles out (low tide) during the days when I was there, and it was so hot, that a paddle was what was needed. Shame I didnt know what the park involved so didnt have my togs on, and because I was on my own it was... More

Don't expect too much. This is a small water park. However, it is fun for smaller kids (<10 years) and the adults enjoy then as well. Some shade is provided in the outer ring. Just get wet and enjoy!
