Hey, Puyallup, wondering when your sprayground will open?
The sprayground-splash pad has had periodic openings already, but it will officially open for the season on May 26th with a summer kick off party at 5PM.
After that, it will have daily hours beginning May 27th!
The sprayground is right by the downtown library (Get your books first because wet kiddos and books don’t mix)!
There is also a fun playground with Big slides at Pioneer Park, and on weekends there is one of the area’s best farmer’s markets, which means this place is hopping!
The sprayground isn’t huge, but it’s plenty of fun. My son and his pal had a ball there on one of those really hot days a couple of weeks ago. There are fountain things for little ones to walk by and over, and there are some interactive, overhead features that can dump a Lot of water when kids get them going.
All the kids I saw were having a ball! Tomorrow’s event will also include vendors and other kick-off style fun!
Tomorrow’s event will go on rain or shine unless there is an outright downpour, in which case it will be canceled.
If you’re wondering where to park on a busy day, I suggest the parking garage at city hall, which has ample, underused public parking. You can also find street parking. Parking by the spray park itself will be next to impossible. I don’t recommend changing at the library for various reasons, so my suggestion is you do all your dry play first, then enjoy the spray park, and bring dry stuff they can easily throw over their suits in the car or whatever….If you’ve got a better routine, let me know!
Thanks to Puyallup dad and city councilman, Tom Swanson for the photos!
