Summertime in Metro Vancouver can be hot, but that doesn’t mean you and your family can’t be outside and still stay cool. Below is a list of our top choices for spray parks for kids. Some are big, some are small, but all offer a great place to have fun and stay cool this summer break. ☀️
Rocky Point Park - Port Moody
This park is by far the most popular in Port Moody for a reason. Complete with a spray park, playground, dock, walking trails, ice cream, a restaurant, and kayak rentals, your family could literally spend all day here and not get bored.
The spray park itself consists of multiple combinations of water nozzles, areas to run through, and ground sprayers.
Best of all, the park is FREE!
Maple Ridge Park (Kinsmen Spray Park) - City of Maple Ridge
The spray park at Maple Ridge Parr is a must-do for any children this summer season. With two water parks (one for little and one for big kids), a giant shaded playground, sand pit, washrooms, and picnic tables, this is a great destination for toddlers and teens.
The Kinsmen Spray Park is open to the public all summer, weather permitting. The water flow is sensor activated, which results in less water waste and a more efficient system.
Granville Island Water Park - Granville Island
If you are looking to do something a little special the next hot day of the summer, we recommend spending the day at the Granville Island Water Park.
Complete with multiple water slides, spray fountains, a nearby playground, and all the amenities of Granville Island this is a one-stop shop for fun!
Lions Park - City of Port Coquitlam
We love all the new renovations at Lions Park. The multiple zone playground is amazing, the zipline and slides are always a hit with the kiddos.
The spray park itself has many ground features which makes it appropriate for younger children who will not be scared off by larger, more intimidating water features.
As an added bonus there is also as sand digging zone, washrooms, and a cute picnic area for the entire family to enjoy.
Queen’s Park - New Westminster
New Westminster's Flagship Park offers families a wide range of fun outdoor activities to partake in. Aside from the beautiful treed landscape, running trails, and petting zoo, the splash park is sure to be a hit with your children.
Blue Mountain - Coquitlam
Beautiful Blue Mountain Park is among one of the city's original parks and it is here to stay! The community space is alive with amenities including sports courts, additional wading pools, a recently renovated playground nearby, and bike paths.
We love the wading pool at Blue Mountain. There are always lifeguards on duty, which is very reassuring for parents.
Mill Lake Park - Abbotsford
In addition to the impressive spray park located at Mill Lake Park your family will also enjoy the playground area, picnic benches, and paths for runner and walkers. Feel free to bring your fishing rods an in case your children want to join the fisherman and catch dinner.
The spray park is located adjacent to the Centennial Outdoor Pool and is open from 9am to 8pm in the summer.
Cameron Park - Burnaby
This push-button spray park is open all summer from 9am to 8pm. Your children will both love the multiple water features of this spray park and the cool playground that is located directly next to the spray park.
Chilliwack Landing Leisure Centre - Chilliwack
If you are in Chilliwack, the Leisure Centre is a go-to spot for fun outdoor activities. Complete with a family park, skateboard park, aquatic centre and a spray park, what child wouldn't want to spend all day here!?
If you want to stay inside, the aquatic centre has a wave pool, lazy river, and water slide for both you and your children to enjoy.
However, if you want to catch Vitamin D, the spray park is also a wonderful option and is complete with multiple sprayers fun objects for your children to interact with.
Annieville Lions Water Park - Delta
If you are in Delta the Annieville Lions Water Park is a great spot to take the kids on a sunny summer day. The water is turned on between 10 am and 9 pm, which gives you plenty of time to run through the sprayers and cool off.
There are also picnic shelters and tables in the area, a playground and new natural playground, and washrooms.
Brookswood Park - Langley
The spray park at Brookswood is open all summer long, if the weather is forecasted to be 18 degrees celsius or higher that day. This is great because most summer days in Langley are!
On top of the spray park there are also drinking fountains, washrooms, a playground and treed nature area.
Willoughby Community Park - Langley
We love both the Willoughby Community Park and Spray Park. The first is a wonderful new wood-themed play structure, complete with bouncy cover on the ground to prevent injury. The second, is a very spacious spray park with a green frog to run through and tons of other fun sprayers to get wet with.
There are washrooms close to both the park and spray park, which is a necessary and added bonus for parents.
Eldon Spray Park - North Vancouver
Both the spray park and playground at Eldon Park are two of our favourite places in Metro Vancouver to bring our family on a hot summer day. The spray park itself has spraying rings to run through, buckets that dump water down, and ground sprayers.
Once your children dry off the playground is also always a hit. The surface is rubberized which also helps with boo-boos.
