North Sound spray parks

Haller Park, Arlington

This spacious park is right along the Stillaguamish River and is a popular spot to fish and view eagles. It also has a great splash pad! The splash pad has a fun pound theme, with animals spraying water out of their mouths and tall cattails sprinkling water from above. There is also a bucket dump for kids ready for a really big splash.

This park has restrooms, picnic tables (including covered areas that can be reserved), river and beach access and the Stilly Snack Shack where you can by concessions. See the website for hours, and keep in mind that the snack shack be may be closed due to staffing shortage. 

Hours: The splash pad is open from 11 a.m.–7 p.m. daily, Memorial Day through Labor Day (weather permitting)
Find it: 1100 West Avenue, Arlington

Willis D. Tucker Park splash pad, Snohomish

Even if you don’t live close by, it’s worth the drive to play in the giant splash pad at Snohomish’s wonderful Willis Tucker Park. Watch out for the dragon soaker!

Hazel Miller spray park at Edmonds City Park

This large spray park is a North Sound favorite! Located at woodsy Edmonds City Park next to a play structure, it includes a 55-gallon bucket, water cannons, arches that spray water and a toddler-friendly area where kids can play in the water. Look for the fun area beyond the spray park where kids can build small dams to affect water flow. Conveniently, picnic tables are located nearby. The park also boasts a ballfield, trails and more. It’s also a nice stroll to the ferry terminal.
