Children playing in Sprayground at Hillside Park

As the temperature rises, Durham Parks and Recreation provides places for residents to cool off. Spraygrounds are specially designed play areas with water jets and fountains that spray water in all directions. They are perfect for children of all ages and provide a safe and fun environment for kids to cool off on hot summer days.

Each year DPR spraygrounds open by Memorial Day weekend in May and operate through early fall.
