Splash Pad Solutions for Municipalities


Although the winter season has just begun and we have several months of cold weather ahead of us, it’s never too early to start considering and planning a splash pad for your municipality. Splash pads bring communities together offering a fun, interactive and accessible recreational space. Additionally, a splash pad comes equipped with a slew of different water jets and play features, significantly increasing play value

Cities, towns, and suburbs are challenged with creating livable neighborhoods for their exploding population. They need to attract residents, positively impact the community, and offer sustainable solutions that protect our planet.
