The Wynnum Wading Pool was built during the 1930s Depression as part of the Unemployment Relief System. The pool and adjoining playground are much-loved destinations for a family day out. The pool fills with seawater at high tide and is an ideal spot for kids to splash around and have fun without having to venture out into the open water.
Make a day of it and bring along a picnic. Just a few metres from the water park you'll find a number of picnic tables and electric barbecues.
At low tide, kids can chase the legions of soldier crabs scuttling across the foreshore. Then finish the day with ice-cream and fish and chips on the jetty.
