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 great playground with water features and plenty of shade and seating for the parents. Safe climbing features and a large area of swings and slides. Also clean toilets and nearby BBQ facilities.

“Great for Kids”
Reviewed June 24, 2013

Great location cooling sea breezes, safe enclousers, close to food and toilets. Not too clean at time I visisted seems like the cleaners were more inyersded in chatting on face book then getting job done. Bit of paint here and there needed and perhaps a freindly ranger or 2 would be good.

“A fun place for the kids to play”
Reviewed June 21, 2013

Lots of area for kids to run around and play on playground equipment and in a splash pool. We took our kids twice while we were in Cairns, and they loved it!

“What a Playground”
Reviewed June 19, 2013

I did notice that in and around Cairns - they do like their playgrounds - most beaches north have one. But Muddy's was the best playground I have been to. With two little kids (5 & 2), we went twice in the four days we were in Cairns. They loved exploring all of the different sections. Heaps of climbing and exploring and some water fun too. The cafe attached was handy - to grab a coffee for while watching the kids. A great FREE activity to do with the kids.
