Tacoma Get Ready for Fun In the Sun…It’s Opening Weekend for Metro Park’s Spraygrounds!

Enjoy countless hours of free water-play from 10am-8pm at 8 Metro Parks Tacoma spraygrounds this weekend.


Forecasts calling for sun-filled days on Saturday and Sunday couldn’t have come at a better time.  Due to the projected high temperatures, Metro Parks has been working to open two new spraygrounds, at Franklin Park and Titlow Park, ahead of their planned Grand Opening community celebrations this summer, to provide weekend service at all eight spraygrounds.


The spraygrounds will be open every Saturday and Sunday from 10am-8pm during the month of May. From Memorial Day through Labor Day the spraygrounds will be open daily during the same hours. Following summer season, they will return to weekend-only operations through the end of September.

The two new sites added since last summer  – Franklin Park on Union Avenue in Central Tacoma and Titlow Park on Sixth Avenue in the City’s West End neighborhood – are part of the 2005 Park Improvement Bond passed by Tacoma voters which has placed seven of these popular play features in our parks over the past 6 years.
