New Sprayground Hours in Effect

The county has revised its sprayground park hours after receiving complaints from parents.

This year, budget cuts force the parks department to reduce Monday through Thursday summer hours from 10:00 a.m. – 8:00 p.m. to 12:00 – 5:00 p.m. Now, the hours have been revised to make sure parents have the option of using the parks in the morning, before the heat of the day reaches its peak.

Now, park hours will alternate between 2:00 – 8:00 p.m. and 10:00 a.m. – 3:00 p.m. Each park will still be closed one day per week.

The new park hours took effect July 17.

The county has three sprayground parks: Drew Park, Hayes Park, and Lyon Village Park.
