Splash Pad

Make a Splash - Share Your Thoughts

What is a splash pad?

  • Splash pads come in many different sizes and shapes and have interactive water features that vary from simple spray features, activated components and waterfalls.
  • Splash pads contain activated, in-ground and above ground features that spray water in different patterns and directions cooling off users on hot summer days.
  • They stimulate children's minds and keep them active at their own pace and comfort level. They provide a safe aquatic experience because there is zero accumulation of water.
  • Splash pads are accessible for all developmental abilities and great for older caregivers and grandparents.
  • The goal is to have a splash pad geared towards infants, children and youth to experience cohesive play with natural and gradual separation between gentler features and more fast moving, exciting features.
  • The committee is planning a splash pad with approximately 18-24 components and a spray area of 192m2.
