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.

Loved this - suitable for all ages and the fish and chips were great! Walking distance from our hotel and about 1km from Cairns Lagoon area.

“Overated...”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 24, 2012

I wouldn't say this playground is the greatest for kids but it is helpful having a coffee shop in very close proximity to oversee the kids activities whist sipping on a coffee. Just don't order a Mocha coffee as my partner complained it was very very weak. Nearing the end of the cup she found the gluggy mess of coffee and chocolate powder at the bottom of the cup. Don't expect fully trained and experienced baristas exercising their coffee making craft here. I declined the offer of a refund but the 4 year old had a great time climbing on 'Muddy Mudskipper' who is a rip-off character from the cartoon, "Ren n' Stimpy" but who cares. I'd visit again with the little one but BYO coffee from another place.

“Kids paradise”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 21, 2012

Safe, clean and perfect on hot day with water features. Restaurant nearby serves reasonable food. Shaded areas and bench seats for parents to sit and also shade where children play.

“So Cute with Good Safety”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 14, 2012

I stayed right next to the playground and walked through it at all hours. It seems like a great place to play with your kids if you have them, they have locking gates so they can't run into the street and the equipment all looks new and well-kept.

“perfect fort young children”

Our kids LOVED Muddy's. A shame we didnt have enough time to go again. They couldnt get enough of it and it was nice for us to sit and just watch them play.
