aquarena, templestowe

Mamma heard the rumour that Aquarena is SUPER busy on a hot day - imagine an ants nest that has just been stood on. So why not test it out on a 36º day? Mamma loves a challenge! In reality - yep - busy BUT there was PLENTY of space, especially for the preschoolers. The outdoor toddler pool swings into full operation after 10:30am when temperatures reach 26º and we had the space to ourselves. The pool zone divided into thirds is shaded and has a great view of the whole outdoor area. 

But there are so many aquatic adventures to be had at Aquarena. Outdoor diving boards, olympic length outdoor pool, double water slides and a water splash park! This water play zone is awesome. Stand under the shower sprayers, swing the water cannons and run through the spray. Little ones may be hesitant at first - especially under the tipping buckets - but the fun will soon take over.

Then inside 4 separate swimming zones including a fenced toddler pool with nice beach-style slop. You could easily spend the entire day here hopping from pool to pool, to playground to splash zone. 

Mamma's special mention: For more aquatic adventures in the North, be sure to stop for a dip at Watermarc.
