Two pools on two tiers with small but fun waterslide in between. An extra wading pool for the kids with a play area that has a bucket that fills and spills. Plenty of shade, there's a kiosk and good changing facilities and it's free.

This is a really good set up and all credit to the local council for making this all happen. Two big pool areas as well as a kids pool under shade. Good grassed areas to set up for the afternoon.

Bluewater Lagoon is a fantastic place for the family, especially safe for little kids and there is a good snack bar too. The water park with giant bucket that empties onto the kids is a hit with the children. And guess what? It's free entry!!
