D.C. Mayor Muriel Bowser and the Department of Parks and Recreation say all 33 stand-alone spray parks throughout the city will remain open through Sept. 26.

All 33 of DPR’s stand-alone spray parks will remain open every day, from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. through Sept. 26, the mayor’s office said.

“Even though it’s September, we know there will still be some hot days ahead, and we are happy to able to keep our spray parks open to help people stay cool and have fun,” Bowser said. “We also remind residents that now is the time to sign up for DPR fall programming, where the fun will continue.”

DPR Director Delano Hunter said his department is pleased to extend the spray park season until the end of September.

“Earlier this year, DPR was very proud to be named the #1 park system by the Trust for Public Land,” Hunter said. “Keeping spray parks open for an additional month demonstrates the flexibility and responsiveness that helped earn DPR that distinction. DPR Spray Parks will be the place #WhereFunHappens for an extra month!”

Langdon Splash Park, which operates as part of the Langdon Park Pool, closed on Labor Day.
