Frequently asked questions

The Province of Alberta has provided specific guidelines for the operation of outdoor spray parks and wading pools as part of Stage 2 of the Province’s Relaunch Strategy. Based on feedback from public health officials, a modified approach for this year is required to ensure the health and safety of staff and spray park users. Implementing user registration for time slots, disinfecting the area between groups, and capacity limits are the only way the City can operating the spray park and be in compliance with these guidelines.
The City’s approach to operating the spray park is similar to what is happening in other areas of the region, while still taking into consideration rules and guidelines that are necessary due to the spray park’s design and capacity.
You can register for a time slot at the spray park through the City’s online registration system. If you don’t have one already, you will need to create an account (you will need to add your family members to your account and register each family member who will be attending the time slot). Review these frequently asked questions about account registration for more information.
Keep in mind registration is limited to six spots per user per time slot (maximum of one time slot per day) and you can register up to one week in advance. The spray park is also for local community use only.
At this time, use of the spray park is for Spruce Grove residents only (a Spruce Grove address is required to register for a time slot at the park). We recognize this will be disappointing for residents in surrounding communities who have visited the spray park in previous years; however, given the current circumstances with COVID-19, we feel this is a prudent approach to help ensure the health and safety of our community.
Walk-up traffic will still be permitted to access the spray park, provided the park is not at maximum capacity for that time slot. All walk-up traffic will be registered on site. Residents are strongly encouraged to register for a time slot in advance to avoid disappointment.

Given the required capacity restrictions, it was decided to implement two-hour time slots as a way to provide access to as many residents as possible, while still providing an adequate window of time for users to enjoy the park during their visit.
