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 nice walk along the esplanade and a great spot for light refreshments. Plenty of people to watch passing by and children to amuse you with their antics

We enjoyed our time here. A great way to burn some energy. Between the play equipment and the water parks there is plenty to do! Right on the esplanade with a cafe nearby. Plenty of seating options. And free!

Great facilities, quite busy during weekends and school holidays. Cafe located here offers easily accessible menu. They have an IG wall art, be great to have more around the park to for the older kids to take photos while the younger enjoy the park.

Flying fox, endless playgrounds and water features that the kids can run around in, café and lots of tropical gardens make this place a winner. Especially good for young children.

We had to park at the casino or where the cruise ships come in. Parking is terrible.
