The Woodlands Township’s five community spraygrounds are now open for the season. No matter how hot it gets, people of all ages will enjoy splashing in these colorful and imaginative water amenities!

Spraygrounds, also called splash pads, combine the fun of water play for children without the danger of standing water, making them ideal for young families and weak swimmers.

All Township spraygrounds utilize sanitized, chemically-treated water that is tested and monitored daily. Residents are asked to respectfully follow all posted rules for their safety.

 The Township’s five spraygrounds are open to the public and operate 8 a.m. to 8 p.m. daily from March 1 through October 31, 2016.

The spraygrounds at May Valley, Timarron, and Village Green do not require a pool pass or entry fee at any time. They are each conveniently located close to rentable pavilions or seating areas in their respective parks and are extremely popular destinations for birthday parties, play groups, picnics, and other celebrations throughout the season.

The spraygrounds at Sawmill and Shadowbend are located adjacent to Township swimming pools. Outside of pool hours the spraygrounds are free to use and accessible from the park side gates. However, during public pool hours, the spraygrounds are closed from the park side and become part of the pool complex in order to make for a safer, more enjoyable environment for all involved while the lifeguards are present. As such, pool entry requirements apply to the Sawmill and Shadowbend spraygrounds during public pool hours.

The Township spraygrounds are located in:

May Valley Park, in the Village of Sterling Ridge

Sawmill Park, in the Village of Grogan’s Mill

Shadowbend Park, in the Village of Cochran’s Crossing

Timarron Park, in the Village of Creekside Park

Village Green Park, in the Village of Creekside Park
