GLADSTONE PARKS

SPRAY PARK The spray park at Patterson Park will be open Monday-Saturday, 12:00-6:00 p.m. and Sundays from 1:00-5:00 p.m. beginning June 11th through September 3rd (weather permitting). The interactive spray park feature utilizes a recirculating water system with a filtration unit and chlorine sanitizer. For safe, responsible fun at the spray park, please follow the spray park rules: 1) Parental supervision of children is required; 2) Swim diapers are required for all persons who are not toilet trained; 3) Dogs/animals are not allowed in the feature (dog hair clogs the water recirculatory system and there is potential of introducing fecal matter into the water system); 4) Do not use spray park if you have had diarrhea in the last two weeks. Your health and safety are our priority. Here are a few additional tips: -For effective sunscreen application, allow it to dry before entering water. -Rinsing off in designated shower area is recommended prior to entering the spray park. -Swim socks or shoes are recommended to avoid injury. -Drinking & spitting of water from features is discouraged.
