What was more fun as a kid than running through the sprinkler on a hot summer day? Today, children and their parents can take playing in the sprinkler up a notch, as more and more local aquatic centers and parks add dedicated water play areas.
As the owner/operator of a commercial pool, you should think about renovating to include features for your younger visitors. These water play features can be all sorts of things: animals, water buckets, colorful shapes, and much more. Companies such as RenoSys can design and install these additions by using as much of the existing infrastructure as possible. This results in an exciting upgrade that is incredibly cost-effective.
By installing a dedicated kids’ area, you can draw parents with young children to your facility. The little ones who are too small for the water slides and deep water can splash and play in a zero-depth area with all sorts of fun water play elements.
Communities who want something fun for their residents (but may already have a local pool) often choose a splash pad. A spray park or splash pad has the fun water features, but no standing water. Kids can have fun in the spray with some standard safety measures and no life guard.
When RenoSys installs any water-play elements, safety is number one. Depending on the nature of your kids’ area, you may choose to go with our SoftSide custom aquatic landing pads. Spray parks can also benefit from safety pads under or around certain features, such as slides. Our RecDeck PVC pool deck surfacing is always a good idea for any pool deck. The slip-resistant textured PVC adds that extra bit of reassurance for parents; we all know that no matter how many times you say “no running” someone is going to be in a hurry to hit the water. Make sure that your deck keeps slip-and-fall chances to a minimum!
If you’re building a new pool or considering renovating your old pool, consider adding some water play features for your youngest guests. Not only will it help keep your patrons safe, by providing a separate area for young children, it will also draw more guests who want something age-appropriate, safe, and fun.
