We can’t deny that Ipswich can get hot. So what do you do when it’s sweltering and you need to cool off? Head to one of these free zero depth water parks!
Orion Lagoon offers pools for all age groups with a toddler friendly 0.3m depth area up to 1.5m for proficient swimmers. Checkout the fun squirting spouts and stepping-stones, barbeque areas and picnic tables.
Kids will love the large tipping bucket in the zero depth water park at Robelle Domain. There’s also jet sprays and spouts. The water park is surrounded with shady picnic areas, boardwalks and playgrounds as well as land art pyramids and an early evening sound and light show.
Bob Gamble Park
Set inside River Heart Parklands Bob Gamble Park is an Ipswich favourite for good reason. It includes a zero depth water park, play equipment including a giant climbing spider, 25-metre flying fox and swings for toddlers. There’s also Discovery Forest, picnic and barbeque facilities.
Ripley Splash ‘n’ Play
There’s something for kids of all ages at Ripley Splash ‘n’ Play including fountains and water play features with wiggly sprayers, water shooters and more – and a majority of the water play area is under shade sails. The park includes barbeque facilities, flying fox and a huge slippery slide.
Tulmur Place is the newest zero depth water play area in the Ipswich region. Located in Ipswich’s new Nicholas St CBD redevelopment you can find water spurting from the ground and a simulated rainfall area as well as a beautiful lights display at night.
