Oklahoma City officials made good on a promise to kids and will open nine new spraygrounds this weekend, just in time for Memorial Day.
Spraygrounds are like little water parks. Most of the gadgets at the city’s new spraygrounds are designed so kids can splash their buddies with water. Seems like that’s why the lifeguards always kicked me out of the pool when I was a younger pup, but hey – things change. Splash on.
City parks with the new spraygrounds opening this weekend are:
Douglass Park, 901 Frederick Douglass Blvd.
E.B. Jeffrey Park, 4432 NW 16
Macklanburg Park, 11700 N Stratford
McKinley Park, 1300 N McKinley
Melrose Park, NW 5 and Council
Memorial Park, 3600 N Classen
Sellers Park, 8301 S Villa
Wiley Post Park, SW 17 and Robinson
Youngs Park, SW 44 and Youngs Blvd.
The spraygrounds are free and open from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. daily.
