Located at 416 N. Taylor St., the Taylor Street Park Sprayground is a dynamic, zero-depth aquatic play area that provides endless hours of fun for the entire family. The sprayground combines the sensations of different water movements – flowing, misting, and jetting – with diverse features for an unequaled aquatic play adventure.

Due to COVID-19, the sprayground operates daily in two-hour sessions, then closes 30 minutes for cleaning, Monday-Saturday from 10 a.m.-7:30 p.m.and Sundays from 1-8 p.m.

The sprayground is expected to reopen in April 2021.
