I called this post Wynnum, but in fact I am concentrating on one area, and that is Wynnum Kids Water Park & Playground, plus Whale Park & Wading area.
From where we live at Camp Hill it takes twenty minutes by car to get there. This area is amazing on so many levels; it is a playground dream for kids. With facilities like two separate playgrounds, accessible toilets, shelter, nearby cafes, bike racks, parking and bike paths,
and Playground has all of the practicalities sorted
out. Wynnum Kids Water Park
The Wynnum Wading Pool was originally built during the 1930's Depression as part of the Unemployment Relief System. The pool and adjoining playground is a much-loved destination for a family day out. The pool fills with seawater at high tide and is an ideal spot for kids to have some water fun, without having to venture out into the open water.
A popular design feature of one of the parks, which has an ocean theme, is the whale pod waterspray, with its main attraction being that the children get sprayed by the spouting whales, Jarvis had so much fun getting soaked! . There are several shaded spots of the playground, however the water park is in the sun.
The park is also right next to Pandanus beach – a sandy, calm little stretch of water, perfect for young families. There is also the Jetty to walk and explore.
Besides the barbeques and heaps of space to set up a picnic, there are many shops and cafes within easy walking distance for snacks and supplies.
ps I know this post is image heavy, but there is so much to show.
