Located at the base of the city’s eponymous red cliffs, Settlement Cove is a large tropical swimming pool that is a favorite spot for families with small children and anyone else who enjoys splashing around shallow waters on hot days. This picturesque picnic spot is surrounded by shady fig and palm trees, and includes free barbecue facilities, large picnic shelters, playground areas, and showers. Next to it is a popular kids’ park, which features a seafront walk and bicycle paths, connecting this cove to the city’s main pier and the parks beyond. Stop by for a family day of fun and relaxation, but keep in mind that in this kid-friendly area no glass bottles or alcoholic beverages of any kind are allowed.

  • On the coast of Moreton Bay. It is a public park with Palm trees, sand and a lagoon-shaped pool. Monitored by the masters swimmers and lifeguards and Park safe for the pool and children playground. The lagoon is very well laid out. There are plenty of corners barbecue but soon taken over. Everything is available and free. Possibility to walk along the pier. Late in the day admire the sunset over the ocean.

  • This is definitely a 5 star. Free public swimming pool. Heaps of covered BBQ & Picnic tables. Lifeguard. Clean toilets. Ample parking space. Perfect view and strolling place. No regrets paying my taxes seeing and having a facilities like this. Well maintained lagoon.
  • Love it kid safe and they have a blast, always busy on the weekends and school holidays, if you plan on spending a bit of time there get in early to get a decent spot. Is well worth going for several hours take meat for bbq or pack a lunch or buy it, plenty options
  • Free swimming pool. Now if only it were less crowded. Still great free public facilities.
  • It seems amazing and great location to spend one day of weekend there in particular nowadays.
  • The atmosphere is great, and right next to the bay
