Skye’s Foreshore Splash Park

In late 2022 there’s been a super fun addition to Bunbury’s brilliant Sykes Foreshore Reserve – a splash park! Found right in between the new-ish boat playground and Discovery Parks – Bunbury Foreshore (formerly Koombana Bay and Big4 Discovery Parks – Bunbury Foreshore). The Sykes Foreshore Splash Park is already proving a big hit with the kiddos. Many people think the splash park is located within the holiday park, but it’s right next door and open to all. The City of Bunbury partnered with the holiday park to bring this free attraction to visitors and Bunbury locals.

The ship-wreck-themed Bunbury splash park has over 40 water features, with a giant tipping bucket and many spray zones. The biggest hit has to be the bucket, which fills and splashes the kids about every five minutes. There are also a few smaller splash buckets around the splash park.

There are shade sails over the splash park, though they don’t provide full coverage. The splash park is beach themed, with the soft fall starting as a yellow “sandy beach” complete with spray palm trees and colourful beach balls, changing to white “surf” and then the spraying shipwreck in the blue “ocean” area.

Sykes Foreshore Reserve also features a big boat-themed playground. This sand fall playground is a good size and offers equipment for kids of all ages, from tiny tots and up.

The Leschenault inlet opposite is perfect for a paddle. Plenty of kids were enjoying a splash at the little beach by the jetty. There’s also a bike path that runs along the foreshore.

The facilities at the Sykes Foreshore Reserve Splash Park are modern and new. They include BBQs, toilets, picnic shelters and benches. As well as male and female toilets, there are also unisex toilets, and a unisex baby change room, which makes it so much easier for solo dads that are taking their kids out to the park.

The splash park makes Discovery Parks – Bunbury Foreshore an even more attractive accommodation option for families in Bunbury. The holiday park already has a bouncing pillow, pump track, tennis and basketball court, swimming pool, and hire equipment including bikes, stand-up paddle boards and pedal carts, plus dog-friendly sites and more.

Sykes Foreshore Reserve has plenty of large trees providing areas of shade, but you need to get there early on hot days to secure your shady spot. I’d advise taking your own shade, just in case. Pack a picnic and enjoy the space for hours.
