Next time you are sweltering come and play at the Wynnum Water Park. The Wynnum Wading Pool is the perfect natural bathing experience. The pool was built in 1931 by unemployed men on relief work. Great seaside area to cool off. Always an ocean breeze during the summer heat. This park has all facilities including a large changing block and the pool itself is well maintained. You can stroll over to Pandanus Beach for an ocean dip. A new $770,000 playground Water Park was opened on the 8th of May 2004 right next to the Wading Pool. $6.5 million was spent on upgrading the heritage listed, Wynnum Wading Pool Reserve which was constructed by the Brisbane City Council during the 1930’s Depression, as part of the Unemployment Relief System established to provide work projects for the unemployed. 2008 marked the 75th Anniversary of the pool.
