5 best things to do at Windjammer Park
1. Shipwreck Shores Splash Park.
Spend a summer’s day at the free Shipwreck Shores Splash Pad at Windjammer Park, with a pirate ship, fountain feature and lazy river (check summer hours). There are no lifeguards on duty, and dogs are not allowed.
Kids will love the splash pad, three fountains and water cannons, with lots of seating for parents. To get the water flowing through the lazy river and fountains, kids needs to step on a bright yellow button. The lazy river and fountain then flow for 3 minutes out of every 15 minutes.
Water is dumped from a bucket on the mast of the shipwreck.
2. Lagoon and beach.
The lagoon is just steps from the Splash Park at Windjammer Park, with a beach area and dock (but no lifeguards).
