This is a must visit for the younger set when it is nice and hot in summer. The water features are excellent and educational. One can spent hours here without the kids getting bored. There is ample storage and facilities for all the family. Will return for more fun with the grand kids one day.

Wow! The whole concept is a winner here, it's educational, it's interactive, it's clean and safe! We spent a morning here as a 3 generation family and loved it. Poppa took photos of the water features and the views from the back area, while we enjoyed the water in the play area. There were all ages, sharing and participating. We... More

This is a great safe zone with seating and shade and a fun water experience for kids and adults alike. Our first time there and we loved it. Unfortunately part of the park was closed at the time we were there but that didn't hinder us having fun. Definitely more favourable for younger children but the beach is right next... More

There's not many activities free these days but Westside is a definite must do. Entirely free , except for the surfing thing, this zero level water park provided hours of entertainment for my little ones. Only down side was the lack of anywhere nearby to buy lunch.

This is a great spot to take the kids on a hot day or if you just want to relax while viewing the beautiful bay as the kids have a fantastic time playing in the water park. This is fantastic value and the kids absolutely love the water guns, the water slide and the water jets to run around in.... More
