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.

“A family favourite”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 22, 2014

I'm reviewing this on behalf of my son and daughter in law who liked Muddy's so much they visited 3 times in one week! They have a nearly 2 year old and a 7 month old and said the food was great and playground was fantastic for really little kiddies. We want one in Adelaide.

“Best Playground in Australia!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 21, 2014

My 2 year old was in her element, there's so much for the kids to do here from the water activities, to climbing as well as the little kids section. A great free activity that will keep the kids very busy and provide so much fun.

“Excellent for the Kids”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 19, 2014

This place my wife and I take our little one regularly. She loves it, right on the waterfront with cafe and plenty of activities for the kids. We usually spend a easy couple of hours here when we visit.

“Free family fun”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 19, 2014

Open long hours this free but well-maintained playarea has water-play, sand and climbing areas and a efficient well-used café to feed the family.
Suitable for all age-groups (we had a 12yr old down to a 5yr old among our group and they all found ways to have fun) I'd bring togs, and towel and grab a coffee and a table early!
