With summer temperatures in full swing here in the metro area, you’re likely wondering how you can both escape the heat and keep the kids active this year. Brigette, from our iFamilyKC Mom Squad team has put together your ultimate guide for Spray Grounds here in the metro area. She’s compiled a list of 22 places you need to put on your summer bucket list. Take a look…
22 Spraygrounds Around Kansas City!
It’s summer, you’re hot, I’m hot… we’re ALL hot! And nothing says summer like water parks, splash parks and really anything to do with water. As a mom of littles and mediums that don’t fully know how to swim or have been scarred by going under water one time, it can be nerve wracking when going to the pool.
Take my pool for example. Living downtown is great! You get a mix of people, however, they are mostly young and no kids. So it can cause a lot of stress on everyone when trying to take your kids to a populated pool.
So over the past few years, I have grown to LOVE spray grounds! The water is not too deep and they can enjoy themselves in a fun, non-scary place with water. I can either join them in the fun or relax on the side. Mind fully at ease.
So if you are like me and you love spraygrounds, then have no fear and take a look at this amazing list of spraygrounds throughout the metro area!

While I have not been to most of these parks, this is merely a guide of locations throughout the metro area. It is always wise to check the time and dates before heading off for a day of fun!
*Pro tip* Pack plenty of snacks, water and extra clothes/towels when heading to the sprayground. Also, if you have or can purchase some, water shoes are a great idea for your kiddos when they are playing in water. Some of the grounds can get slippery and the last thing you want to do is heal boo boos when you want to have fun.
I hope you find this list helpful and enjoy your time this summer!
