Spraygrounds are water playgrounds with fixtures and fountains that spray water. They are similar to water play areas, such as those at Kimberley Park and Bolton pools, with a significant difference: Spraygrounds are not set in standing water, making them safer for children. A popular alternative to swimming pools, spraygrounds save resources by recirculating and filtering the water nor do they require lifeguards or staffing.
How to Use a Sprayground
Push the button, mounted on a bollard at the edge of the sprayground, to activate the water for 15 minutes. If nobody pushes the button again within 15 minutes, the water will stop.
