The city of Auburn announced on July 9, that the spray playground at Les Gove Park is up and running again after it was shut down for repairs. The water will be on daily 10 a.m. to 8 p.m. through Labor Day.

Repairs were made to the surface of the playground as well as to the equipment. The parks department is still waiting on parts to repair one of the water features at the playground, but this does not affect the operation of the playground.

Les Gove Park is at 910 9th St. SE, just off of Auburn Way.

Weekend weather

The spray park will help people cool off this month in the warm summer weather.

Temperatures are expected to reach a high of 76 degrees Saturday (July 17) and 80 degrees on Sunday (July 18) with mostly sunny weather and low chance of participation. Temperatures next week (July 19-25) will hover in the low 80s, according to weather.com.
