Photos can be taken at City Hall or the Valley Junction Activity Center during regular business hours (8am-5pm) or at the West Des Moines Aquatic Centers starting the first week of June.

To activate the fountain push the arrow in the center of the pedestal with one finger.  The duration of the Sprayground run time is set randomly for 2- 8 minutes.  Optimally it will shut off between each time the button is activated.  This is done to minimize water usage and promote movement within the feature.   The start button can be difficult for some children to activate, which encourages close parental supervision and prevents inadvertent operation.
