City Extends Sprinkler Play for Families Due to Heat Wave

Parks and Rec offers sprinkler play at designated parks throughout the city to help ease the triple digit heat
July 18, 2023

The City of Albuquerque’s Parks and Recreation Department (PRD) announced that they will be extending sprinkler play in city parks through Friday, July 21, 2023, due to the continued triple digit heat. Sprinkler play was part of “Operation Cooldown” last weekend and was a huge success for the community. Sprinkler play will be available at designated parks (see list below) beginning Tuesday, July 18, 2023, through Friday July 21, 2023, from 1:00pm to 2:00pm. PRD focused on new park locations that either offer the City’s summer lunch program or parks located close to a community center to allow better access for children enrolled in city programming. Pool fees and splash pad hours are back to standard pricing and operation.​
