EAST Shores was a hive of activity over the weekend with revellers keen to check out what the new facility has to offer.
And the response was 100% positive from residents.
"It's a great family place. Mum and dad can sit down while the kids play in the water ... we've got three daughters and they love it in there," John Davison said.
Deon Martin and Tracey French went to East Shores for the first time on Saturday.
"It's something new in Gladstone and it's something to do for the kids," Deon said.
Proof that it's not all about the kids was Tina and Jeff Zawila.
The pair had a relaxing afternoon sitting down by the water watching the sunset.
"It's taken Gladstone to a whole new level. It's great to see something like this," Jeff said.
