BAKERSFIELD, Calif. - Our local spray parks may look fun but changes are on the way.
The city of Bakersfield Water Board held a meeting Wednesday to discuss closing spray parks.
The city was mandated by the state, and now spray parks will close on August 1 to conserve water. It will stay in effect for 270 days.
Many residents said they would be upset if this change went into effect because the spray parks is a free amenity that keeps them cool during the hot summer months.
Spray parks are usually open until October.
