Community: Triwood – 19 St. & Chicoutimi Dr. N.W.
Parking: There is free street parking as well as in a small parking lot.
Typically opens mid-June until Labor Day – 9am-9pm.
Features: Multiple spray park features. Washrooms are open seasonally.
Surrounding Park Area: There is a huge grassy area that is used frequently by different ‘bootcamp’ groups to the SE of the spray park and tennis courts to the NW next to the parking lot. There is another grassy area with trees past the tennis courts where the mobile adventure playground sets up when it’s at Canmore Park. There is no playground in this park.
Shade: Some of the south side from mature trees. There is a sunshade by one of the picnic tables. You may want to consider bringing your own shade.
Seating: A few picnic tables and a couple of benches. They will fill up quickly so plan to set up on the grass.
Overall assessment: This spray park opened on June 1, 2011.
The water park operates on vibration sensors so if the water is off during operating hours it’s not closed, it’s just that no one is there. The spray park runs rain or shine and only closes if there is lightning. The two tall towers and the smaller brown post just need to be tapped to turn the water back on.
The water is chemically treated and re-circulated to conserve water and keep it clean for the kids to play in. There is an attendant there at all times to maintain and monitor the water quality who is also trained in first aid.
We’ve been to this spray park many times and always have a good time. If you want to avoid crowds try going early in the morning (it opens at 9am) or on a cooler day. Its perfect for little ones who are a little hesitant about the water as they can hang out on the edges and play with the smaller sprays, but with the buckets of water that dump out and the towers that they can spin, it will still lots of fun for the older kids.
