Sprayground FAQ  

The Sprayground has closed for the 2015 season.

The Dorbrook Recreation Area Sprayground is preparing for a facelift!   

Plans are underway to renovate the popular spray park for the 2016 season. Renovations include updating the spray features; replacing the existing surface with a colorful bright blue one; and adding new features like “raining leaves”, domes of cascading water, and a series of high to low play troughs. The pumping system will also be replaced for improved water filtration. Work is expected to begin after the Sprayground closes for the 2015 season.  We look forward to unveiling all of the fun and fantastic new features our Sprayground will offer in 2016!

Here are some images of our plans:
