The City of Kansas City held a “Grand Opening” for Longview Spray Park on the Friday before Memorial Day weekend, 2006. This is the first of five spray parks designed by Larkin that were scheduled to open in the same year. Longview Spray Park features two separate spray pads with a multitude of both in-ground and above-ground features.
The spray park has been designed as a low-maintenance alternative to staffing and operating a wading pool on the same site. The park is operated by an automated controller with pre-set park hours of operation.
