Water Spray Park
The water spray park has 12 "stations" in a total area slightly larger than the size of a basketball court. There are two "touchstone" poles that activate the spray stations, which resemble elephants, rainbows and other items. The water sprays for a set amount of time until the poles are touched again.

Information regarding large groups using Water Spray Parks
Collierville was the first community in the area to have such water spray parks. The play areas are designed for children 12 years of age and under to enjoy an aquatic environment without danger of deeper water. Parental supervision is required.
No lifeguard is needed at the water park since there is no water depth. A central drain moves the water off the area. The surfaces are lined with a soft, rubber-coated material to make it safe for children.
Department reserves the right to close the park and change hours as needed for maintenance or special events.
