8 thoughts on “Spray Parks Near Calgary – Southern and Central Alberta Splash Pads”
Another good one we stopped at on our way home this weekend is in Rimbey. Right next to the pool, but the sorat park is free and even if the kids want to go swimming, the pool is very nice as well and only $15/family.
There is a spray park in Coleman if you are heading into the Crowsnest area
The same picture for Blackfalds and Okotoks?
Nevermind, it’s the video that is posted beneath those two. I want to know what outdoor pool that is!
This article has most of the outdoor pools that we’ve visited. Hopefully you can find the one you are looking for there
It would be so nice to see all of these suggestions on a map. Thanks!
Nevermind! Found it!
The one in Brooks is JUST off of the highway, we stop every time we are travelling past it on our way to Medicine Hat. It is right beside a HUGE newer playground that has three levels of equipment for children of different ages. My toddler LOVES it. And there’s also an outdoor exercise area with tons of workout machines for adults! There’s picnic tables under a gazebo for shade. And the water park itself has lots for kids to do. You can turn the water on by pressing the green button on a post.
