Water Play Area

Kids Water Play Area Ultimo 

Life’s an adventure at the Ian Thorpe Aquatic Centre where kids love to explore water fountains and splash their way through the FREE water play area.

This water world of discovery is designed specifically for young children so they too can experience the joy of water and develop their confidence at every stage.

Benefits of Water Play

Water can provide hours of absorbing fun and a multitude of development and learning opportunities. Playing with our children in the water offers so much value, giving them a great early start to learning through hands-on play. 

Splashing and playing in the water is an excellent outlet for children to let out all of their pent-up energy. Playing in the water can be both calming and invigorating allowing children to relax, play and feel confident in the water.
