There are tons of parks in the Skagit County area, but there are also spray parks that you should visit during this summer. There are currently four spray parks in the Skagit County area – Kiwanis Spray Park, Storvik Park, Maiben Spray Park, and Jungle Playland. They are open every day this summer and is recommended for all families to bring their kids to enjoy and experience Skagit County Parks.

Kiwanis Spray Park is located in the Mount Vernon area. It has a fantastic playground, picnic tables, restrooms, a softball field, basketball courts, and an amazing spray park. There is also a boardwalk trail through the wetland area that connects the park to surrounding neighborhoods. This particular park opens daily from 11am to 8pm from June 1st through September 30th.

Storvik Park is located in the Anacortes area. It is about 8.7 acres which includes picnic tables, a reserved picnic shelter, restrooms, one game field and two basketball courts. Storvik Park also has a huge children’s playground. This spray park just recently opens since the summer of 2017 and is open for this summer daily from 11am to 6pm on May 25th through September 3rd.

Maiben Spray Park is located in the Burlington area and it is a terrific neighborhood park! Along with a large, covered picnic shelter that is available for rent, you’ll find tennis and basketball courts at the park and lots of wide-open grassy areas. Children especially will enjoy the playground area and the Kiwanis is for Kids Water Park. This spray park is open daily for the summer from 9am to 9pm on June 6th through September 9th.

Jungle Playground is located in the Mount Vernon area and includes admission to the Spray Park with admission to the Playland. Highly recommended to bring a towel to dry off with and socks for the Playland. Spray Park requires kids to wear swimwear (no undies) and before heading to the Playland, you must be dry with socks on. Bring your kids along to a wild, adventure to the Jungle Playland for an entire day of summer fun! They are open daily on Wednesday through Friday: 1pm to 5pm, Saturday: 10am to 7pm and Sunday: Noon to 5pm on June 23rd through closing, depending on the weather.

Those are the four best spray parks in the Skagit County area while you enjoy a small picnic with some friends and don’t forget your sunscreen! We hope you and your family are able to visit one of them to enjoy a lovely day at the parks if you’re in the area!
