If you don’t have access to a pool, there are many FREE options to cool down and get wet during the hot months in and around Louisville.
Many of the metro parks have spray areas and splash pads for lots of fun on really hot summer days as do other locations. They are free and most are surrounded by all of the other amenities like playgrounds and picnic areas.
Due to the pandemic, these are currently closed. We are tracking this closely and will update this page as some open. If there are no notes, assume they are closed.
Here is a link to the Louisville Metro Parks Covid-19 reopening schedule. Most of the sprayground that are listed below are operated by Louisville Metro Parks.
Splash Pad at home, what?!
Here’s a list of the free spraygrounds!
Spraygrounds and splashpads are really great for families with small children. Pools can be difficult with many quick little kids to keep track of deep water around. With the sprayground, they can still get wet and cool off without the worries of a pool.
Plus, I feel like you can pop in and out of a sprayground pretty quickly. Bring chairs for relaxing, buckets to fill, hats and sunscreen, and have fun!
