Ellenbrook Water Playground is one of our favourite free things to do in Perth with kids and we regularly visit this wonderful playground in summer.
Ellenbrook is located north of the river, and is at the doorstep of the Swan Valley. The Ellenbrook Water Playground (Rainbow Waters) runs seasonally - usually around late October - March, but times can vary, It's best to call the City of Swan to see if it's running if you are planning a long drive to get there. There's also a link below to the City of Swan website where you can find more information about running dates and times.
The Ellenbrook Water Playground is located only a few minutes from the Ellenbrook Town Centre and features lots of colourful water sprays and cannons. There are no pools of water which makes it great for kids of all ages. A couple of kids brought water guns along and were having a great time chasing each other and squirting Mum and Dad, so bring along your super soaker for some added fun!
There is limited shade around the water playground. You can find a few small shaded areas, one of which has a couple of fixed picnic style table and chairs. We recommend you bring your own shade and picnic rugs as a back up as these areas fill up fast and there is plenty of grassed area to set your shade up for the day. There are toilets (with baby change facilities), and a BBQ. You can head into the the town centre, about 5mins walk away to get a coffee or a bite to eat.
The Ellenbrook Water Playground runs on sensors so it will only activate if people are there. During the season it runs from 10am - 7pm.
There's also a large oval with some footy goals and a BMX track at the back, so bring the ball and bikes along if you want to stay a while and enjoy these features before heading back to the water playground to cool off.
