“Free swimming with river views”
Review of Riverway

Riverway
Ranked #5 of 80 things to do in Townsville
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed November 7, 2012

Riverway has a huge lagoon type swimming pool which tumbles into a smaller toddler pool on the banks of the Ross River. It also has an art gallery, small theatre for live concerts, cafe and lots of shaded boardwalks and walking paths suitable for wheelchairs and prams. This area is great for children as it also has a children's playground. All the attractions are free except for special performances in the theatre. The children will enjoy feeding the turtles and fish. There is plenty of free parking nearby.

We always take the kids here for a swim. It's a relaxing place and so big you don't feel too crowded on a busy day. It's well kept and has easy parking.

A great pool area for swimmers. Area for picnics and a river walk along the Broadwalk.
Art Gallery here too. Only one cafe - closes at 3pm.

Townsville community should be very proud and grateful for this free family facility.
Huge salt water safe swimming pools set in lovely gardens beside the Ross River. An Art gallery, walking track and entertainment venue make this a great place to visit.

This is an excellent family facility, with a cafe, art gallery and conference rooms, adjacent to the free form pool which cascades to another level and this is all next to the river, which is full of birdlife and turtles. Well worth a visit and its FREE!!!
