Turn on the water!
The park district’s spraygrounds — aquatic playgrounds that offer park patrons a fun respite from the heat — will open at 10 a.m. Saturday at Jefferson Park, Kandle Park, McKinley Playfield, Norpoint Park, South Park, Wapato Hills Park, Wright Park and two new park locations this year — Franklin and Titlow Parks.
Metro Parks’ spraygrounds will be open from 10 a.m. to 8 p.m. on weekends only from May 4 through May 27. Then, beginning May 28 and running through Sept. 2, they’ll be open daily, with the same hours of operation. As the summer winds down, they’ll shift back to weekend-only hours, from Sept. 3 – Sept. 27.
There is no fee to use any of the parks’ spraygrounds.
