“Great family fun”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 15, 2013 via mobile

A wonderful park along the river, lots of BBQs and picnic spots. Fun playgrounds for the kids. Best of all are the 2 large swimming pools, for free! Change rooms and showers right there also. Well worth checking it out. Right beside the stadium.

“A hidden gem in the heat”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 31, 2013

This is one of Townsville's hidden gems - an outdoor swimming facility which includes a fantastic 70m pool. It's right on the bank of the Ross River surrounded by park and other shade facilities - great for a picnic. Once you've done Castle Hill and and The Strand (with the free Rock Pool also for swimming, head to Riverway.

“Ducks and Terrapins”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 22, 2013

Wow, if you have a small child, a loaf of stale bread, a small girl who wants to have a dip in the toddlers pool and see wild life you can see it all - ducks, terrapins and absolute squeals of delight. Riverway is a hidden treasure in Townsville (Thuringowa) GO THERE
