What Is Wynnum Wading Pool Park?
Wynnum Wading Pool Park is a public water park located at the edge of town, next to the sea in Wynnum. Apart from the water park and wading pool, the park also features a playground for the kids, sheltered areas for picnics, nearby cafes and push bike paths, if you’re in the mood for a ride.
The large wading pool just past the playground area fills with sea water at high tide through pipes in the ground, providing a great area for kids to swim – a much safer alternative than swimming in the ocean.
The main attraction to the park is the nautical themed playground and waterpark, which includes whales that randomly squirt water out of their spouts! It also includes plenty of conventional playground equipment such as climbing areas, slides and swings.
Along the waterfront there are marked bike paths and walk ways which provide a perfect spot for kids and adults alike to go for a casual ride, taking in the views of the nearby Pandanus beach – a small, calm stretch of beach, perfect for building sand castles.
With large trees galore and various covered gazebos, there are plenty of shaded areas surrounding the playground that provide the perfect spot for a picnic lunch or to sit down with a good book.
My personal favourite thing about Wynnum Wading Pool Park however, would have to be the nearby picturesque jetty, which is the perfect place to go for a quiet stroll and take in the scenery.
Wheelchair accessible toilets are located near the playground within the park. There are several shaded places to set up camp for the day around the playground, however the water park is unsheltered. The small gazebo areas, picnic tables and barbecues are clean and well maintained. There are many shops and cafes within easy walking distance for snacks and supplies. Parking is located near the playground so it’s not too far to walk and the closest bus stop is Pandanas Beach.
