Pop on down to Muddy's playground any day of the year between 9am and 7pm. If you are looking for a shady spot to set up for the day, the best times to arrive would be in the morning or late afternoon as it can be busy around the lunch time rush. The cafe serves a variety of hot and cold drinks along with food at a reasonable price. The park itself is free from an entry fee. Alternatively if you didn't want to spend money at the cafe, you can bring a picnic lunch to enjoy with your family.

There are BBQs, picnic tables and an events lawn along with two separate toilet facilities.

The playground itself not only includes an amazing water play area but also rope bridges, slides, colourful play houses, flying fox and sound chimes.

The close proximity to the foreshore allows cool breezes to blow through the wonderfully shaded playground which can give a reprieve to the Cairns humidity.
