Spray park

If you want to have a great time with the family this summer, this Drumheller Rotary Spray Park is the place to be!

The spray park is located in front of the world's largest dinosaur and the Drumheller Aquaplex.  

This spray park is dedicated to the children of Drumheller through leadership from the committed members of the Drumheller Rotary Club on June 9, 2001.

The Rotarians also acknowledge the generous contributions of the following: 

  • Town of Drumheller;
  • Community Facility Enhancement Program;
  • Community Lottery Board;
  • Alberta Sport, Recreation, Parks & Wildlife Foundation, and;
  • Citizens of Drumheller.

The spray park normally operates from the May long weekend through to mid September with exceptions being on account of the weather and maintenance.

Our community is rich with facilities that you can utilitize to develop skills and strengthen your relationships. Whether it be serious training or just fun recreation, you can trust that our Town is developing the necessary areas and equipment that you need.

Looking to take a swim? We'll meet you at the Aquaplex! Looking to get a work-out in? The BCF is right here for your fitness needs. The Memorial Arena is a great way to get together with friends to watch and play a variety of sports.
