Opened in October 2022, there are free barbecues and plenty of lawn and sheltered areas perfect for picnics.

Open during the warmer months, on extremely windy days the water splash area will not be turned on, however the waterslides will continue to run.

  • Playground
  • Skate Park
  • Basketball Court
  • Barbeque
  • Lawn areas and gardens
  • Shade Sails
  • Picnic Area

Cowell Lions Park has parking available for long vehicles, so it’s a great spot to stop and take a break during a road trip. You can find the water park and playground on Thompson Drive at the Cowell Foreshore.


The official FREE Cowell Foreshore opening event will be held on Saturday 11 March 2023 featuring live music with Shannon Noll, a fireworks display and market stalls.  Free camping will be available at the town oval.
