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.

“Great childrens play area”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 10, 2013 via mobile

Really good facility for children but cafe food and service poor.
Not enough staff to cope with demand which leads to dirty tables and no customer service whatsoever. Customers are left standing as staff too busy to attend to counter.

“Nice place for kids”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 6, 2013

The place has lots of fun water things for kids.
1 less star for having very few seating / gathering space for parents.

Go here if you have free time in the afternoon. Don't waste 1 complete day here.

“Great for the family”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 5, 2013

Muddy's is a great family spot, with plenty of fun things for the kids and a lovely shady place for the adults to sit a supervise. The water activities are wonderful for the little ones and a great way for the older kids to cool off before returning to the adventure playground. Plenty of places for adults to sit and relax while the children are playing. There are BBQ areas if you feel like a cooked meal with tables and shade areas. Many locals use this area as well as tourists. The only problem is parking, Muddy's is on the Esplanade which is a busy area and finding a parking spot can be a real problem. It is worth the effort and the view is spectacular!

“Fantastic place for kids (and adults!)”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 31, 2013

We love Muddys. We haven't taken our daughter there as often as we would have liked it yet, but with the summer coming it will happen more regularly. There is an enclosed area for older kids with a lot of different climbing features where they can go wild. And within this fenced area, there is an additional smaller enclosed area for toddlers with sandpits and a 'less extreme' playground. In the big kids area, there is some sort of a water park, no slides or anything, just interactive fountains and water features which are great fun for younger children! There are a lot of nice, shady trees which give a bit of shelter from the sun and a café as well, which serves kids and adults meals and good coffee. A must go if you have young ones! Love it.
