Oh my goodness, definitely add Riverway to your next visit to Townsville. Gorgeous picnic spots, playgrounds, and a great variety of pools for swimming - VERY clean and lifeguards on duty.

Most scenic spot for a public pool ever. It had a tradition pool and a pebble lagoon. Kids had a ball, it looked like a resort. Cafe was good too.
