Now Open: Larkey Spray Ground in Walnut Creek

Walnut Creek’s Larkey Spray Ground is the perfect place to spend a sunny day in the Bay. The splash playground shares a space with the Larkey Pool but is sectioned off in its own gated area with a lifeguard on duty.

This splash park offers plenty to do for the five and under set: climb to the top of the water slide; shoot a water gun on those below; tug on strings to get wet; or jump over water shooting up from the ground.

The playground is set in a circle, with benches along the perimeter – plus three tables with umbrellas – which fill up fast. I liked that it was small and could see my boys from anywhere I sat. We showed up right as it opened – 10 am – and I didn’t feel like it was too crowded, but can see how it may get crazy. Show up early!

Once you’re done splashing around, take advantage of Larkey Park – just behind the swim center – plenty of green grassy hills, picnic tables, and two playgrounds – bring a lunch and dry off under the trees.

  1. It is VERY difficult to find the “simplest” information on your system. How about adding Splash, or rather Spray Ground information. Still not open until June 19th? Thought this was just for Ladt Year. Still 10-12 Mon-Thurs & 4:30 to 6:30 M/T/Th/F? Cost?
