Beaver Brook Reservation Spray Deck & Playground
Ideal for toddlers through age 5 years. There are swings, slides and climbing structures.
The primary attracton on hot summer days, however, is the 'Spray Park' - a nifty area with water spraying out of ground vents and boulders for kids to climb over.
There is a lifeguard on duty.
The area backs onto Beaver Brook Reservation, which has a stream and picnic tables, and a large area for softball & volleyball games. There are also two covered pavilions for picnicking.
Restrooms are available on site when the park is open.

Birthday Partiesjust as an FYI you do not need a permit or reservation to have a birthday party here. i called the state department that takes care of this and they mentioned this to me. its on a first come, first serve basis. which is great but i just hope no one else chooses my date to have a party there. just get there and set up early. and be kind to the environment around you and throw away all trash used. awesome park i love it and I'm glad i get to have my party here!!!!!!
Lots Of Fun But Very SlipperyI loved this little playground with the spray pool. Not much parking so go early to get a space. The one issue I have is that there are kids running all around in the water and the ground is cement and there are huge boulders. I was sure that my 3 year old was going to slip and fall and end up in the emergency room. If I go back I will be sure to bring water sure or some kind of shoes with treads.
Great for 2-5 year oldsGreat for 2-5 year olds when you don't have the time or patience to go to the beach. About a dozen sprinklers...no wading pool. Plus a playground for those that want to stay dry. There are some shaded areas though not in close proximity to the water.
