For current 2014 Season information on the Troy Hill City of Pittsburgh Spray Park please visit: http://pittsburghpa.gov/citiparks/spray-parks or call the CitParks Aquatic Office: 412.323.7928
The spray park opens from late spring to early fall. It’s located on Goettman Street at the Cowley Playground. It has an array of giant water canons and sprayers than will cool you off. The City has built additional spray parks in Shadyside, Beechview, and the East Hills neighborhoods,
The City choose to replace the pool with the spray park because, it is a solution that provides the Troy Hill neighborhood a place for recreation and also is economical for the City. Spray parks are historically less expensive to operate than a swimming pool since it does not require lifeguards and the water does not need chlorinated. Also, it provides greater accessibility for people that can not swim and for the disabled.
