Review of Riverway

Riverway
Ranked #4 of 90 things to do in Townsville
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 1 January 2018 via mobile

Riverway is a fantastic facility provided by the Townsville City Council. There are two very large pools with a range of features. There is a sectioned off kids wading pool, ramps and areas with different depths for different uses and abilities. There are also lanes for lap swimming. There are heaps of shaded areas, picnic areas and bbqs around the pools for a picnic or lunch. Heaps of room for running and playing, bike paths and kid’s playground. This is right next to the river where you can see turtles and fish.
Add to that a cafe, kiosk, museum and theatre and regular events!

What an awesome gem for any city, and although we used this space for parkrun during our visit to the Ville, it was a beautiful & functional space around the Ross River.

We stayed in townsville for 4 days and this public pool is the best. Large enough to accommodate kids, teenagers and people from all walks of life. The view of the river, the park and the gallery is a plus factor that makes it worthy to visit when you're in Townsville.

You also feel safe because they have lifeguards nearby. You can also watch different kind of birds in the river including turtles and also catch some fish if you like.

A really great place to walk the dog in the afternoon in the shade of the trees along the waters edge. Looking at the turtles/calm water and enjoying the scenery

What a beautiful place to visit. The river is a beautiful backdrop to the swimming lagoons, which are well patrolled and clean. We went for a walk along the riverbank as well and were delighted to see turtles and ducks together in the water. We could also see fish and eels swimming near the edge of the river. The paths were well kept, with a good amount of shade from the gorgeous trees.
