Vernon Street Town Square spray ground
The spray ground generally opens on the weekends at the beginning of May, but has been delayed due to the stay at home order and the requirement of no gathering. We do not have an estimated date for opening this season.

We are still providing customer service 8:00am-5:00pm, Monday-Friday at 916-772-PLAY (916-772-7529) or

The decisions regarding reopening were based on a combination of the April 16 revised health order from Placer County Health, new guidance for outdoor recreation from Governor Newsom issued on April 30, and best practices from California Park & Recreation Society and the National Recreation and Park Association.
