You might call them Splash Parks, Spray Parks, or parks with Water Features…but one thing is for sure…your kids love them!  The spraygrounds around Sacramento are one of the best ways to stay cool this summer.  They provide hours of fun and they are FREE!

My kids and I have been checking them out one at a time so that we can give you a first hand look.  I’ll be sharing lots of pictures of each park and then update my complete list of spraygrounds for you.  The parks all have a regular playground as well, so remember to bring tennis shoes with you.  We bring a picnic lunch along to make it even more fun!

Our first stop was at Swanston Park in between Arden Way and Folsom Blvd.  This is one of the biggest and best spraygrounds around.  It has lots of fun, colorful water features and is fun for kids of all ages.  It has a great updated playground as well that the kids played on when they were ready to dry off.  This park is now on our favorites list!
