Playground Marshall Playground & Sprayground

The Marshall Playground and Sprayground (1400 Beckley Creek Parkway) is one of Beckley Creek Park’s most popular amenities — in fact, it was voted LEO Readers’ Choice “Best Playground” in 2012. It’s a great place for kids to play and for parents to gather. The playground and restrooms are open year round, with the water at the Sprayground turned on mid-May through September. The Marshall Playground was made possible, in part, by a grant from Louisville Metro and a donation from the Marshall Family Foundation. You’re going to love it!

**The water at the Sprayground will be turned on for the 2016 season on May 2nd and turned off again in the fall.**
