All four of the City's spray parks will officially be open on Saturday, 5/25/13
at 1 p.m.

Cool off during hot days (late spring - early fall) at Pittsburgh's coolest aquatic facilities—"spray parks!"

You don't need swimming skills to enjoy the spray parks. From the tiniest toddler to a pre-teen adventurer, and even those using wheelchairs, children of all ages and abilities enter with equal enthusiasm.

Let your imagination run wild, as movement sensors cause sprayers to magically turn on and off in this three-dimensional world of water. It's guaranteed to bring back memories of running through sprinklers...but this time with a lot more fun, color and movement.   

Spray parks are normally open 9:00 a.m.  - 8:00 p.m. every day.
