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.


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!

Free Spraygrounds near Louisville

Louisville Metro Parks Spraygrounds do not necessarily open at the same time throughout the year so we cannot post specific opening dates for all of them.

Most metro parks spraygrounds are open dawn to dusk.

When we have summer-like weather in spring, they start to open. It is not common for these locations to announce actual dates when they open for the year so we cannot definitively say in April/May that they are all open. 

Other spraygrounds listed on this page may have different hours or may change their hours at any time. And, they open for the season at all different days of the year which are not always announced or predictable. Please know that we update this when we see this information but sometimes we do not find that right away!
