Fountains and Spray Grounds

The City of Colorado Springs Parks, Recreation and Cultural Services Department manages several spray grounds and fountains that are available in the summer months.

When the outside temperatures are not expected to reach above 65 degrees, sites may close for the day. Operations are expected to resume when the hot temperatures return. If in doubt, please contact the site prior to going for some water fun!

Lightning Safety Procedures

Lightning can occur with or without rain. Parks staff follow the “30/30” rule. This means when there is less than 30 seconds between lightning and the resulting thunder, fountains and spray grounds are turned off. They are turned back on 30 minutes after the last time thunder is heard. The same counting method will be used for hearing Bang to Bang or seeing Flash to Flash. Under 30 seconds, patrons should seek immediate shelter in a safe location until operations resume.
