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.

Wonderful play park for the kids. And for the parents there's a cafe and views of the harbour. And it's free!

“Good free activities”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed July 12, 2014

Offers a variety of different things for the kids to do. I was expecting something more like the play area on the forshore of the gold coast so I think that is why I was a bit disappointed. Still a very good play area for the kids to burn up energy.

“The best thing for young kids”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 10, 2014

I believe the best free thing for kids to do in Cairns. Our kids loved the water and played for a long time.
Very good place for adults to spend some time relaxing while kids enjoy.
We will definitely advice others to visit this place if you have young kids.

“Free entertainment for the kids”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 8, 2014

I wasn't sure about Muddy's at the start. My three year old wasn't getting involved in the water play and I felt the park a little to big for my two year old but that changed and we were there for 2.5 hours. Its nice to have something that doesn't always cost $$$. The kids had a ball playing on the various playground equipment and splashing in the water. Tip: bring spare clothes
