Kids Care Spray Park opens for season

The Kids Care Spray Park is now open for the May long weekend, giving local families a fun head start on summer 2014.

The popular children’s water park is open to the public from 10 a.m. to 8 p.m. during the rest of May, through June, and again in September. Spray park hours are extended in July and August, from 9 a.m. until 8 p.m. The 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 (Highway 97 Couplet) at Hebert Road.

Kids Care Spray Park is free of charge and offers 20 motion activated pieces of equipment including geysers, hoops, shower towers and water cannons. The site also offers open lawn space for other activities and to spread out towels and blankets. Shade trees, picnic tables and washrooms/change rooms are also available.

District of West Kelowna 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, on May 26, 2012.
