The five best sprayparks in Chicago and the suburbs


Glencoe Beach

  • 160 Hazel Ave., Glencoe
  • (847) 835-1185
  • Admission: $10, $7 kids; $6 residents, $4 resident kids

Enjoy a day at the beach on the shore of Lake Michigan with the spraypark as a bonus.

"It's kind of a unique play area. You don't have a lot of spraygrounds right on the beach," says Steve Nagle, director of operations for Glencoe Beach.

Built into the sand and rebuilt last summer, this spraypark features a tug boat, shower mushroom, sprinkling posts, swings, slides and the popular sunken dinghy.

"It shoots out water and kids love to play with it," says Nagle.
