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.

It is such a fun place for families. So many activities are there and I was surprised to see that a cafe can do so well in terms of providing a good community/ public playground. It has heaps of small fountains and just a short scroll from the sea (the beach itself is a bit awkward, not sandy, and a bit smelly. it is not polluted, the waste is brought from the sea). It is well-designed, perfectly-sited, well-oriented, shady, and just amazing!

What a great new addition to the boardwalk. Lots for the kids and the parents. Catch a fish and cook it immediateky whilst the kids play.

Loved the activities for the kids, but not much adult seating outside of the cafe that's under cover.

This really is one place that you should not miss if you have toddlers and younger children while visiting Cairns. The park is beautifully set out with small water fountains, amusements and shaddy spots for smaller children to discover and play around. It is just north of the main pools on the Esplanade; has a pleasant walkway in and out, ample fencing so that children are contained in a very safe way. We also enjoyed seeing all of the local kids and parents having a play in the water as well.

There is also a cafe with pretty broad food options, drinks and of course ice cream! So if you have a few hours to spare and would like some sea breezes, a few shady trees and great toddlers water fountains to run in and out of you cannot do better than Muddy's!!!
