What on Earth is a Sprayground?

Hot? We thought so. If you live in Peekskill, we’ve got the perfect cure for the summer swelter. Today at 3 p.m., County Executive Andy Spano will join Peekskill mayor John Testa in cutting the ribbon on the county’s fifth biggest city’s new “sprayground.”

And what is a “sprayground,” you ask? It’s a playground that “uses both water and electronic controls to create an experience for kids that is both refreshing and entertaining,” according to a statement from the mayor. By touching buttons throughout the park, kids will be able to trigger fountains that squirt refreshing H2O for 30 seconds at a time. At the center of the sprayground will be a bright yellow and green mushroom.

The new water park is part of the city’s revitalization plan, which calls for every playground in Peekskill to be rebuilt. The sprayground can hold up to 50 kids and will be open from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. and again from 4 p.m. to 8 p.m., Mondays through Saturdays. Park personnel will be present at all times when the facility is running.
