It might seem like an odd day for it, but the Okotoks Spray Park is open for the season as of today (May 17).

Located by the Okotoks Recreation Centre, the Spray Park is a favourite for local families during the warmer months and a sign that Spring is here.

The park will be open from 10 a.m. to 7 p.m. as long as the temperature is above 20°C.

It's also closed during certain environmental and weather events like thunderstorms, heavy smoke, or strong winds.

For those concerned about water conservation, there's no need to worry; the spray park utilizes a "Closed Loop" system that dispenses water, collects it back up, and filters and disinfects it before reusing it.

Only a small amount of water that falls outside the park or evaporates is replaced.

The Town recommends the use of footwear at the spray park to avoid injury.

More information on the Okotoks Spray Park can be seen on the town's website.
