Spray Park & Playground Closed at Municipal Park

We heard our residents, and have installed sun shades at the spray park!

We are in the process of installing sun shades at the playground as well. The attached drawing (click here) is an aerial concept of what the structure will look like and cover (Section A was removed from the approval).

Because of the heavy equipment and large footings needed for this work, the spray park will be closed starting tomorrow, May 30th through Saturday, June 1st. The spray park will reopen at 10am on Sunday, June 2nd. Additionally, the playground area will be closed from tomorrow, May 30th through Tuesday, June 4th.

We will provide updates if there are any changes to the schedule for closure. We thank you for your patience and cooperation while the upgrades are installed.



The Bristol Township Department of Parks and Recreation oversees 32 designated park areas, featuring 27 playgrounds, a spray park, amphitheater, pavilions, a synthetic turf field, numerous athletic fields, basketball courts, and walking paths. 


A variety of youth, adult, and senior programming is available throughout the year, including youth Summer Camp, e-gaming leagues, recreational athletic leagues and tournaments, festivals and special events, and more.


Department staff also provides support to the volunteers of the Environmental Advisory Committee, the Bristol Township Senior Center, and numerous civic associations throughout the Township.
