Can you believe this weather?
If you’re looking to take the kids to a sprayground or splash pad in Tacoma or Puyallup, you’re in luck!
Six of Tacoma’s ten free, spray grounds are now open daily! The others are open on weekends and will also be open daily after Memorial Day. Metro Parks Tacoma spraygrounds and other Tacoma area splashy spots open now are below!

Sprayground Open in Puyallup
Water features in Kent
Yes! The water feature in Kent at the Town Square Plaza is now on. These typically run dawn to dusk. They do seem to close for maintenance quite a lot, but I spoke to park staff this morning, and they are up and running today!
Fountains and Streams Open in Olympia
open year round except for Wednesdays, with periodic daily closures for cleaning.
open-always check the fb page for this one first as it closes often for maintenance and other issues.
Most other spots will open daily Memorial Day. You can see our complete list here for future planning!
Whatever you do, make sure everyone is wearing sunscreen and drinking water. Days like this are when sunburns happen! I would also strongly discourage actual swimming in lakes or the Sound as the water will still be dangerously cold. A little wading should feel good, though! Have a great one!
