Owner description: Muddy's playground is open every day of the year between 9am and 7pm (including public holidays and weekends). Sections of Muddy's are closed for maintenance on Tuesday and Thursday mornings until noon. Even when maintenance works are being carried out, Council aims to have at least half the playground available for use. Muddy's is a modern, fun, safe, splash playground and parkland. It incorporates active, passive, interactive and educational facilities with a combination of play equipment. Muddy's playground is themed "Life in Trinity Bay" and the playground includes water play areas plus a flying fox, sound chimes, track ride, rope bridge, slides, play houses, story telling areas, see-saw, trick track and puzzle games. Please note that the disabled-use Liberty Swing uses the MLAK national keying system. For access please ask at Muddy's cafe. Muddy's has two toilet facilities one at the north end of Muddy's near the cafe and one at the southern end of Muddy's. Muddy's has barbecues, picnic tables and an on-site cafe.

“Fantastic!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 7, 2012

We did lots of things during our stay in tropical north Queensland - scenic railways, Great Barrier Reef, animals parks etc all of whcih were great but the overall highlight for both my kids was....Muddy's! We've been home two months now and they're still talking about it! We might go back to Cairns and just go to Muddy's!

Great to see such a popular facility on The Esplanade in Cairns. Looks to be a choice destination for local and visiting children and parents.

“Great Playground”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 4, 2012

My 9 year old loved this playground. They have a couple of water areas and a seperate area for little kids. My son loved climbing on all the equipment and with the amount of kids in the playground made some new friends pretty quick. There is a cafe in the middle but it is pricey. Had 2 chicken burgers, 1 chips, flat white and 1 cold drink for $50. Would advise to pack you own lunch if you can. Also not a lot of places to fill water bottles
