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 must for young children!”
Reviewed September 2, 2013

Wonderful time there with our toddler, who wore herself out completely running from water spout to water spout. Other parents are friendly, and facilities are very clean. Go at 10:00am to get a good (dry!) spot to sit and watch the fun with a cup of coffee.

“Great for Toddlers”
Reviewed August 31, 2013

Wonderful playground and cafe. Our 2.5 year old thought it was the best and did not want to leave. Very clean and many different areas to chose from.

“Kids fun Ground”
Reviewed August 26, 2013

The best thing about this place is that its free. The kids have a ball running all over to catch the water jets or playing in the park. Awesome

“Excellent (free) playground for the younger children”
Reviewed August 13, 2013

Muddy's was a real hit with my 5 year old and 1 year old. Good variety of equipment, all well maintained. Nice little cafe in the middle serving decent food (with excellent coffee). If you're travelling to Cairns with younger children (1 to 10) then you could do worse than picking accommodation near to Muddy's.
