Now that we’re heading out of another long winter, it’s time to start making plans for the days when the weather is simply too hot to handle. The fact is that no matter what the forecast looks like, your child is still going to have endless amounts of energy. If you need a weather-friendly destination to wear them out, you might just need a list of Vancouver spray parks, and I would love to be the one to help you find them! As a Vancouver family photographer, I have spent some time chatting with families about the best destinations. Here are the Vancouver spray parks I always recommend! 

Beat The Heat This Summer With These Favorite Vancouver Spray Parks

Edmonds Park 

7433 Humphries Avenue, Burnaby, BC V3N 1B1

Edmonds Park is one of the best Vancouver destinations throughout the warmer seasons thanks to their spray park. There’s a large playground as well as paths that run throughout the space. Their spray park is paved with concrete and offers spray cannons as well as buckets that periodically drop water on the crowds below. 

Queen’s Park

3rd Avenue, New Westminster, BC V3M 1V2

Queen’s Park provides you with a nature-themed spray park where your child can splash around. The turf is painted blue and green to resemble streams and islands. Your child can cross a bridge, climb on the rocks, and stay cool with the different hydrants. 

Walnut Grove Community Park

89 Avenue and Walnut Grove Drive, Langley Twp, BC V1M 2N7

Walnut Grove Community Park gives you a large spray park where your Vancouver child will have plenty of space to run around. This area is fenced in and has a ground paved with concrete.

Albion Sports Complex 

23778 104 Avenue, Maple Ridge, BC V2W 0G8

While Albion Sports Complex is a popular spot for little league games, they have a smaller spray area where your child can cool off by running through their water rings or hopping across the spigots that are flush with the concrete. 

Maple Ridge Park

13180 232 Street, Maple Ridge, BC V4R 2S7

Whether you want to take a hike or need a place with an all-ages playground, Maple Ridge Park has options for you. Their spray park is the ideal place to spend a few hours beating the Vancouver summer heat. The ground is outfitted with a soft astroturf, so it never gets too slippery. 

Granville Island Water Park

1318 Cartwright Street, Vancouver, BC V6H 3R8

If you want something for kids of all ages, head on over to the Granville Island Water Park at the False Creek Community Centre. Here, you’ll find a concrete spray pad as well as a winding water slide.

Splash Park at The Shipyards

125 Victory Ship Way, North Vancouver, BC V7L 0B2

Splash Park at the Shipyards is a park that’s open all-year-long. This covered space offers kids tons of room where they can splash around while having the best time ever! Once the temps drop, this area is converted into an ice skating rink so the fun never has to stop.
