Families can get a head start on summer this May long weekend as Kids Care Spray Park opens for the 2013 season.
The popular children’s water playground is open to the public, free of charge, from 10 a.m. to dusk from the May long weekend through June and again in September. Spray park hours are 9 a.m. to dusk in July and August. 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 offers 20 motion activated pieces of equipment including geysers, hoops, shower towers and water cannons. The site also offers lots of open lawn space to spread out towels and blankets, shade trees, picnic tables and washrooms/change rooms.
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.
