The spray park offers a great variety of fun during the hot months of summer. The spray park is open from when the weather starts to get warm, usually in May, to the end of the hot weather, usually mid-October, and is free for all to use.

MLK Pool
[Location:E. California & So. OwensMLK]
Do you enjoy swimming? Would you like your child to learn to swim? During the summer months, the pool at this park offers swimming lessons, before recreational swimming. These lessons are well worth the investment! It allows your children, or even adults, to learn to be comfortable in water and build their strength and skills and gives them the confidence needed to save their life if they get into a tough situation in a body of water. The pool usually opens after school ends for the year, and remains open until the last weekend before school begins. So whether you are coming to learn to swim, or are coming just to cool off with friends and family, you are always welcome to our pool!
