Community health and safety is the top priority for the Town of Wake Forest. The situation surrounding COVID-19 continues to evolve, so the sprayground operating schedule is subject to change. Town officials will continue to closely monitor updates and follow guidelines from the Wake County Health Department, N.C. Department of Health and Human Services (NCDHSS) and the Centers for Disease Control (CDC). These guidelines have been implemented in protocols established by the Town to address potential exposure to the coronavirus and protect our community and staff.
 
Out of concern for public safety, Wake Forest Parks, Recreation & Cultural Resources will introduce the following measures as part of the facility’s daily operations:
Temporary fencing will be installed around the sprayground to control the entry and exit of visitors;
For the purposes of contact tracing, all persons entering the sprayground must be signed in by staff; 
Seating areas will be clearly marked to ensure proper spacing and appropriate social distancing (patrons may bring their own chairs).
 
Again, the sprayground will be open daily in two-hour sessions, then closed for 30 minutes while employees sanitize every surface. For more information, visit wakeforestnc.gov and search “Sprayground” or contact Athletics & Aquatics Superintendent Edward Austin at 919-435-9562 or eaustin@wakeforestnc.gov
