We had a... More

We have taken grandchildren there before and in February took two grandchildren visiting from interstate. Was great fun. Just a shame it doesn't open earlier as was very hot from 10am opening on. Was very busy and seating was limited but we will return again as it offers such great fun for many ages.

Kids had an amazing time. Only downfall is that there is not enough seating to accomodate everyone that comes

The best for kids .... along a revamped beachfront that needed a leg up. It is a well designed place for families with children to hang out!

A stroll along the boardwalk also gives plenty of information about the world's water supply... More
