Best of Vancouver: Spray Park Search

We’ve gone on the hunt for the Best of Vancouver many times. We’ve found great kids’ haircuts, amazing ice cream and fabulous sushi, plus a whole lot more. Vancouver moms have their finger on this city’s pulse. We live here, we work here, and we’re raising our families here. When you want kid-friendly Vancouver recommendations, moms are where it’s at.

The Spray Park Splash Down

best of vancouver kid-friendly vancouver spray parksYou know what else is where it’s at? Visiting a spray park with your kids on a hot summer day. It’s a free way for everyone to have fun and cool off, plus you don’t have to exercise the same level of parental vigilance as in a pool or at the beach. There are so many great spray parks in and around Vancouver to choose from. Which spray park tops the list, though? It seems like the perfect Best of Vancouver search for the dog days of summer.

This is where you come in. We want to hear about your favourite Metro Vancouver spray parks. We also want to know what makes your pick so spectacular. Is there a shady place where parents can sit and supervise? Are there areas of refuge where kids who don’t want to get soaked can splash happily? Please fill us in! Nominate your favourites by August 4, 2013. We’ll review your submissions and narrow down the finalists, then you can vote and help us choose the Best of Vancouver winner.
