Marylhurst Heights Spray Park is located in West Linn’s idyllic, beautifully designed Marylhurst Heights Park, in the Marylhurst Neighborhood. There are no obstructions (visual or otherwise) on the spray pad, making it a particularly safe pad for even the youngest water enthusiasts.
The Marylhurst Heights spray pad consists of a large, circular pad with single spray jets around the outside perimeter, as well as throughout the center of the pad. On one end of the pad, two rows of tall, curved metal columns provide interest and opportunity for toddler water games.
Water gently shoots and sprays from the floor of the pool and from the top of a couple of the columns. There’s no depth of standing water, thus no danger from drowning.
Marylhurst Heights Spray Park is one of the most beautiful smaller parks in the West Linn Park System.
However, there is only one bench overlooking the spray pad. A long concrete form provides additional seating and a place to throw your towels. Lack of shade around the edges of the spray pad is also an issue for supervising parents.
Remember: West Linn spray parks are geared toward the toddler set. Safety is the highest priority. Thus, no dogs, bikes, skateboards, or scooters are allowed in the water feature.
