Summer is coming -- and technically, we're already seeing some weather that is cause for shorts, T-shirts ... and maybe even swimsuits? One fun thing to do when it's warm out is hit up a local sprayground to cool off.
One awesome thing about the six spraygrounds in Tacoma is that not only do they have water features, but they are also regular parks with swings, slides, picnic tables and more. And even better -- they're free!
The six parks are open daily from 10 a.m. to 8 p.m. through Labor Day.
For those wondering about hygiene, the water at the spraygrounds is recycled and sanitized through filtration and UV light. The parks go through about 7,000 gallons of water every week via its recirculation system; if they were to use fresh water, it would be nearly a million gallons a week.
