Sulphur, LA (KPLC) - Taking a dip and having a blast, the pools are packed as the SPAR Water Park is officially open for the 2023 season.

Families and parkgoers lined up for a relaxing day in the sun.

With a little something for everyone, nothing but smiles could be seen.

“It’s really fun, I like it, I like the lazy river,” Daylon Pitre said.

“I’ve been here a lot, look at all my wristbands, this is the third day in a row and I’m getting kind of sunburnt,” Landon Gunter said.

And listen up Sulphur residents, a special day has been reserved just for you.

“So what’s new for this year is we are celebrating our in-district residents by offering our in-district only day every Friday,” SPAR Recreational Manager AunJelle Burton said. “So every Friday from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. if you are an in-district resident, meaning you live within our recreation district, then you can come in.”

Burton said safety is the staff’s number-one priority.

“If you’re non-swimmer comes, we have life jackets free to use,” she said. “We have infant-size, toddler-size, and adult. They are first come, first serve, but we do not allow the inflatable arm floaties or any types of inflatables, those types of devices into the park.”

While SPAR has your back, it’s a place for anyone to come and make lifetime memories.

“It just brings back memories from when my mama, I don’t get to see her much because we go through it, so come back here and get good memories from when I was a kid and little-bitty,” Marcus Doss said.

The water park hours are:

  • Monday, Tuesday, Thursday, and Saturday from 10 a.m. to 7 p.m.
  • Sunday from 1 p.m. to 7 p.m.
  • Wednesday from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m., and Friday for in-district residents only from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m.
