MARYSVILLE – The grand opening of Marysville's new $325,000 Spray Park will take place Thursday, June 26, downtown at Comeford Park, 514 Delta Ave.

The celebration runs from 12:30 to 3:30 p.m., featuring free refreshments, music and souvenir beach balls while supplies last, along with spray fun.
The park includes water jets and dueling spray cannons; rotating sprinklers, arches and ground spray fixtures to simulate jumping fish; bollards and raised curbing; blue solar lights embedded in a winding stream feature for night lighting effects; seating, lighting, landscaping and restroom renovations for swimwear changes.
“The spray park will add a free and refreshing new way for families to enjoy fun in the water on hot summer days, and it offers a great new attraction for helping create a sense of community in our downtown,” Mayor Jon Nehring said.
Spray park hours are 10 a.m. to 8 p.m. daily through Labor Day weekend.
Marysville Community Parks Foundation is running a campaign to raise remaining funds for the project. Two-thirds of the funding is in place. For information about donating, contact Parks Director Jim Ballew at 360-363-8400 or email jballew@marysvillewa.gov.  For more information about the spray park, call the Parks Office at 360-363-8400 or visit the city website at http://marysvillewa.gov.
