Water Play Sprayground

It's the hottest place in town for kids to keep cool! More than just a splash pad, this 4,000 sq. ft. play space features great splashing opportunities for kids, including a water tunnel, multiple interactive spray jets, water pumps and geyser boulders!

What happens if there is inclement weather?

In the event of inclement weather (lightning strikes in the area or high winds that are prohibitive for playing) , our recreation locations will close until the area is clear of lightning for 45 minutes or until prohibitive wind conditions subside. Customers with reservations within these time frames will be contacted by the Shelby Farms Park recreation team to reschedule for a later time or later date.  If closure affects a future reservation for the day, customers will be contacted by a member of Shelby Farms Park’s recreation management team.

What if I need to cancel my reservation? 

Customers may receive a full refund or credit if notice of date change or cancellation is more than 24 hours before start time. If less than 24 hours, no refunds or exchanges. Customers may receive a full refund or credit in case of operator cancellation due to weather or other unforeseen circumstances. Email us at shop@shelbyfarmspark.org
