Love coming here with our family. They swim for hours and we relax. Then we let them dry off on the playground whilst packing up. The pools are massive and food is available to buy. Always a good day at Riverway

Riverway is a fantastic facility provided by the Townsville City Council. There are two very large pools with a range of features. There is a sectioned off kids wading pool, ramps and areas with different depths for different uses and abilities. There are also lanes...More

What an awesome gem for any city, and although we used this space for parkrun during our visit to the Ville, it was a beautiful & functional space around the Ross River.

We stayed in townsville for 4 days and this public pool is the best. Large enough to accommodate kids, teenagers and people from all walks of life. The view of the river, the park and the gallery is a plus factor that makes it worthy...More

Didn't expect to see this in Townsville, the pools are beautiful and I have to say the highlight was walking on the path along the river and seeing all the turtles in their natural habitat in the water, didn't expect that, it was a bonus.
