50m Waterslide (6yrs+) * Jungle Splash Water Playground * Indoor Pools * Shallow Indoor Toddler Pool * Cafe * BBQ for hire
Kids of all ages will love one of Perth's newest aquatic centres Cannington Leisureplex, with a waterslide for the big kids, water playground and indoor pools - they wont want to leave!
There are lots of facilities at the Cannington Leisureplex, including kids gym, creche, library, gym and more, but this review will focus on the aquatic centre.
For kids 6 years +, they can enjoy the 50m enclosed waterslide, it's dark, it's fast and it's fun! It doesn't run all the time so ring ahead to check but usually it operates 11-1pm & 1.30-3.30pm on weekends and during the October and January school holidays - and the entry and exit are located indoors so could be fun during winter on weekends too! The slide is an additional cost, it's $3 for unlimited use for the 2 hours timeslot, or you can buy a 10 slide pass also for $3 which you can share between children or use on another visit.
Kids of all ages will love the outdoor Jungle Splash water playground also open all year round on weekends and everyday of the October and January school holidays. This zero depth, shaded water playground that features sprays, cannons, water tunnels and dumping buckets and outside there is lots of seating and tables so you can enjoy a snack or lunch out here too. Jungle Splash is included in your entry fee.
Inside there are a couple of indoor pools. There is a shallow depth toddler pool with a water fountain and it's nice and warm - so this is perfect for the little ones and there is a small leisure section in the bigger pool. They do swimming lessons here, but they leave a large section for leisure swimming while these are on.
Just note in the picture above the pool was closed - we had been swimming for an hour or so when a "code brown" was called from a child doing swimming lessons so the pool was closed to be cleaned and tested - so it is normally open during opening hours
A day out at Cannington Leisureplex is great value, at just $4.20 for kids to enter, $5.70 for adults and $3 for unlimited slides for the 2 hour block (or get at 10 slide pass for $3 and share between children or use on another visit). There is also a lovely cafe right alongside the indoor pool so you can have an icecream or a bite to eat to have a break from the pool.
