Spray park opens

The spray park is located in Westbank Centre Park, at the end of May Street off Hebert Road

The Kids Care Spray Park in West Kelowna is now open, giving local families a fun head start on summer.

The popular children’s water park will be open to the public from 9:30 a.m. to 7 p.m. throughout June and September, with extended hours in July and August.

The spray park is located in Westbank Centre Park, at the end of May Street off Hebert Road, accessed from Dobbin Road (Highway 97 Couplet).

Kids Care Spray Park is free to use and offers 20 motion activated pieces of equipment including geysers, hoops, shower towers, and water cannons. The site also offers open lawn space for other activities and to spread out towels and blankets. Shade trees, picnic tables, and washrooms/change rooms are also available.

West Kelowna has worked to ensure water conservation is considered at public facilities and parks in the community. A notable example is the Kids Care Spray Park.

This park uses a recirculating water system, which means water is collected and treated on-site and is not dumped into the sanitary system like many water parks. Just a fraction of the water used by standard water parks is needed to keep the sprinklers running throughout the summer.

Why not bring the pooch? Westbank Centre Park is also home to one of the City’s off-leash dog parks.
