The Rainbow Waters Playground is located opposite the library in Ellenbrook. It is an award-winning free to use water park and was one of the first water parks in Perth to use the splash pad surface. The water park incorporates ‘innovative, environmental and sustainable elements, while also providing an attractive and creative playspace’.
The water park is closed in the cooler months and re-opens September until May daily from 9.00am – 7.00pm. There are several rules in place when using the water playground to ensure the safety and enjoyment of others. Glass, alcohol, smoking and dogs are not permitted in the area. Children who ordinarily wear nappies must use a swimming nappy when using the water park.
The Rainbow Water Playground is a fabulous place for families to come and cool off in the hot summer months.
The water park has 15 interactive water features which include fountains, bubble jets and spray guns. Kids of all ages have great fun using the water park. I’ve visited there when my youngest was still crawling and she loved playing with the more sedate water features whereas the older children enjoy spraying each other with the guns and running through the water fountains.
The majority of the water park is covered by large shade sails. Around the edge of the splash pad are various shelters providing spectators access to shade. There is a large shelter complete with 2 picnic tables which seat 8 on each and a changing area. This area is great if you are looking to hold a social gathering or children’s party at the water park.
There are also 4 other shelters dotted around the edge of the splash pad area where you can lay out your towel and relax whilst the children have fun entertaining themselves in the water park.
If you are wishing to bring a few snags along with you you’ll find 4 electric barbecues to cook them on.
Toilets at the water park are all singing, all dancing exeloos, complete with baby change facilities.
There is a large car park right next to the park and I have never had a problem finding a space, even on a busy Sunday afternoon.
The water park is situated next to a large field perfect for playing a few ball games. There is also a BMX dirt track and a lake situated within walking distance.
