Families can get a head start on summer this May long weekend as Kids Care Spray Park opens for the 2013 season.

The children’s water playground is open to the public, free of charge from May long weekend to September.

In May, June and September, the park is open from 10 a.m. to dusk. In July and August, the area is open from 9 a.m. to dusk.

Kids Care Spray Park is located in Westbank Centre Park, at the end of May Street, behind the Holiday Inn, Dairy Queen and Shell service station. Turn off Dobbin Road or Main Street at Hebert Road.

The park offers 20 motion-activated pieces of equipment including geysers, hoops, shower towers and water cannons. The site also offers lots of open lawn space to spread out towels and blankets.

There are picnic tables and washrooms/change rooms available as well.

The district built the spray park in the summer of 2011 in partnership with the Rotary Club of Westbank, Okanagan Kids Care, Westbank First Nation and the Rotary Club of West Kelowna Daybreak. The facility officially opened the following spring.
