Spraygrounds and Splash Pads

Kids playing on sprayground

Spraygrounds are water playgrounds with fixtures and fountains that spray water. They are similar to water play areas, such as those at Kimberley Park and Bolton pools, with a significant difference: Spraygrounds are not set in standing water, making them safer for children. A popular alternative to swimming pools, spraygrounds save resources by recirculating and filtering the water nor do they require lifeguards or staffing.

How to Use a Sprayground

Push the button, mounted on a bollard at the edge of the sprayground, to activate the water for 15 minutes. If nobody pushes the button again within 15 minutes, the water will stop.
