Summer Splash Kicks Off
City Spray Parks to Open with New Amenities
The Parks and Recreation Department has made improvements to the City’s eight spray parks that will open for the season on Saturday, April 14.
All spray parks have additional areas for shade, such as canopies, more benches and trash containers and landscaping improvements that include trees and shrubs and additional ADA sidewalk connectors. Also, there are sunscreen dispensers for public use donated by the Rio Grande Cancer Foundation in partnership with the Parks and Recreation Department.
The improvements at the spray parks cost approximately $1.3 million and were funded by 2017 Certificates of Obligation.
The Parks and Recreation Department invites everyone to enjoy the free spray parks that open daily from 10 a.m. to 10 p.m. Monday through Sunday. All spray parks will remain open through October 30. In addition, dog owners can take their pets to the City’s only spray park designed for dogs located at Pavo Real Park, 9301 Alameda. The spray parks are located throughout the city at the following parks:
