Cape Town –  The City of Cape Town on Monday announced its spray parks are all set and ready to welcome young and old to cool off during the school holidays and the rest of the summer season.

"This summer, families have a choice of one of the City’s five spray parks situated in Khayelitsha, Nyanga, Valhalla Park, Ocean View and Scottsville. These facilities are safe and inclusive recreational spaces for young and old residents to enjoy."

Spray parks have become one of South Africa's most innovative recreational spaces, using much less water than a traditional swimming pool.

The Cape parks are set to  be open every day during the school holidays and thereafter in the afternoons and over weekends. However, facility managers may choose not to switch on the spray park on days when the weather is bad or when there are very few users present. Parents are encouraged to check with their local community centres as to when the spray parks will be turned on. 

Here is a full list of where to have some water-wise fun across SA:
