A Camden neighborhood has a new way to cool off this summer.
A just-opened “sprayground” — the result of a public-private partnership — in the Cramer Hill neighborhood is meant to give neighborhood kids an oasis from the heat, said Camden County Commissioner Bill Moen.
It’s “an opportunity for residents and, specifically, the children of Cramer Hill in that community a chance to get out and escape the heat on the hottest days of the year by accessing this sprayground,” Moen said.
Resembling a small water park, the sprayground is a big deal, Moen said, because of Camden’s limited resources.
“For years, that area of the city has not had a community pool or any type of water fun that is accessible in other areas of the city,” he said.
The closest pool is more than a mile away.
