Omaha spraygrounds serve as a fun and interactive gathering place during the hot summer months. A variety of spray features appeal to toddlers and older children, with parents often joining in the fun. Water spraygrounds have distinct advantages over swimming pools in that they are cost effective and low maintenance, and water-play activities extend well beyond normal pool season. Hours are 9:00am to 8:00pm daily, beginning SaturdayMay 25th  through Labor Day (September 2nd), weather permitting.
