With summer on its way, the City of Dallas Park and Recreation Department is busy getting the coolest places in Dallas ready for opening day. Dallas’ sprayground season officially begins Memorial Day weekend at 10 of the city’s 11 splash playgrounds.
Popular with children and families, the department’s zero-depth
water play areas feature stationary and interactive toys that children can
activate with buttons. Colorful misters, sprayers, sprinklers, dumping buckets
and geysers not only offer visitors hours of free entertainment but also relief
from the Texas heat.
The spraygrounds will be open daily and remain
operational until the end of September. Patrons can find locations and hours of
operation at DallasAquatics.org.
Beckley-Saner Park sprayground will open in mid-June because of renovations. Oscar Carmona, Dallas Park and Recreation Assistant Director, said patrons will appreciate the new amenities, especially when soars to triple-digit temperatures outside.
“A new cool-deck type surface and improvements to the drainage system were needed prior to the opening of this sprayground, Carmona said. “Once renovations are finished, visitors will enjoy a much improved, safer amenity.”
Informational signs about the delayed opening and locations of two nearby spraygrounds are posted at Beckley-Saner Park. Park visitors can go to Danieldale Park at 300 W. Wheatland Road and South Central Park, 4753 Fellows Lane. Plans to open the sprayground will be updated the on the department’s website Dallasparks.org and at social media sites.
