Sprinklers and water features of all kids are there to get your children wet and provide some much-needed relief from the heat… And it’s free! This small park is gated too meaning your little ones (usually) can’t escape your view. You can either relax on the sidelines while your kids have a blast or you can join in the fun. Just be sure to bring towels, swimsuits, hats, sunglasses and sunscreen. You can also bring a few buckets for them to fill and pour but be ready to share (or bring a few extra) because those buckets seem to be a source of envy among the preschool crowd. And, If your kids decide that they don’t like to get sprayed in the face (happens quite often), there is a really fun dry park right outside the gate, a small picnic pavilion and there are restrooms on site as well.
Of course, no fun (or free) spot is without its downside. As I mentioned before, this spray park is small and it can get very crowded on hot days, especially around midday, so I usually arrive when it first opens and leave before lunch. Also, there is no shade so that that sun protection is absolutely essential. You can escape the sun by going to the small pavilion at the adjacent dry park or heading over to the pool when it is open. Despite these minor complaints, and with a little extra planning, we keep going back and have an absolute blast every time!
