Spray Parks

Spray Parks will OPEN for the season on Saturday, May 29, 2021!  (This includes playgrounds with Spray Features.)

You do not need swimming skills to enjoy the spray parks. Spray parks are accessible to the tiniest toddler to a pre-teen adventurer, and even those using wheelchairs.

Let your imagination run wild, as sensors cause sprayers to magically turn on and off in this three-dimensional world of water. It's guaranteed to bring back memories of running through sprinklers...but this time with a lot more fun, color and movement.
