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.

We took our kids to Muddy's to cool down after spending the afternoon at the botanical garden in Cairns. It is a great place for kids, with several different play areas (splash pad, stream, playground with sand, huge fish for the kids to climb around, etc.). It is also well-shaded. There is a restaurant as well. Great way to spend several hours on a hot day!

I went back to Muddies as I had my 8 and 11 year old nephew and niece and a 12 year old friend with me. It was a very hot day so the water play facilities were great and they really enjoyed those. I would say the 11 and 12 year old were a little on the old side for the playground. When I asked my niece (who has the most fantastic playground in her home town of Wanganui, NZ, what she thought, she said, "there are lots of ropes!" The area is quite spread out so it would be hard to keep an eye on little kids, you would have to keep walking around with them, so not very relaxing. The cafe sells pretty decent food at affordable prices, with a $7 kids menu. Although the playground is right by the sea there is no beach, just mudflats, which are not suitable for children to play in. If you want to swim you need to walk down to the lagoon.

Nice shaded areas to play as well as several splash pads. It's nice there are separate areas for younger children too. I can't imagine any kid not having fun climbing into a large fish mouth or running through the fountains. Great fun!
