Play in Park Spray Fountains

Due to COVID-19, spray fountains are closed until further notice.

​Wet, free fun that’s open all summer!

Spray fountains are a fun way for kids and families to stay cool during hot summer weather. As the temperatures rise, cool off and play in one of the City’s spray fountains.

​Kids playing in the spray fountain at Riverfront Park.

Park spray fountains are open annually around the end of the school year, and close just after school starts in the fall. Weather depending, we anticipate turning on the spray fountains by June 12, 2020.
