Sprayground Parks Open for Summer

The county’s three “sprayground” parks opened for business over the weekend, just in time for our first heat wave of the year.

The kid-friendly water parks will be open through Labor Day. Due to budget cuts last year, the parks will continue operating under reduced hours.

Arlington’s sprayground parks include Drew Playground (3514 22nd Street S.), Hayes Park (1516 N. Lincoln Street) and Lyon Village Park (1800 N. Highland Street).

The county is hoping to open a fourth spraygound park near Pentagon City next year.
