The Spray Park

In the summer of 2006 we opened the Spray Park, which quickly became a popular place for children to have a great time cooling off during the hot days and warm evenings.

Seasonal Hours

The Spray Park is open May through September.  Hours of operation are 9:30 am - 5:30 pm Wednesday through Saturday and 12 pm - 5:30 pm on Sunday.

The Spray Park is only operational on weekends during the month of September.

Spray Park Features

The Spray Park has two palm trees: one that sprays water from the leaves, and one that has coconuts that fill up and drop water frequently, soaking those below. A Blue Heron will surprise children by soaking them as they walk by. Magic Mushrooms spray water all around and make a tent for the children to hide under while watching others play. The children have a great time cooling off during the hot days and warm evenings, and comfortable tables, chairs, and umbrellas are available for the adults to relax and enjoy watching the children play. 

Park Closures

The City of Niceville will close the Children's Park whenever the safety of park visitors is in question. The park attendant may close the park at their discretion due to weather conditions. For example, the park will close when:

  • The heat index exceeds 95°F
  • The wind chill drops below 40°F
  • It begins to rain (It takes approximately two hours for the park to dry sufficiently and reopen following rainfall)
  • Lightning is spotted in the area
