Introducing the AquaSmart Packages

March 23 | 11:30 am

These new thrilling ready-to-install splash pad packages are powered by HydroLogix™. The proprietary technology behind HydroLogix is also what makes these innovative water play packages intriguingly affordable.

HydroLogix eliminates the need for costly electrical installation and operates with just a push of the button. Now you can place one of these self-contained splash pads just about anywhere, especially when electrical service is prohibitive or unwanted. No power bills, no potential power failures. This low-water-flow option greatly reduces water consumption while still providing plenty of opportunities for splashtastic play. Because there’s no need for a mechanical room or large vault, you can devote all the available space for a fun aqua play environment.

Trends in Play Space Design

Activity, engagement and involvement.

Parks today face the challenge of providing environments that will attract children and families to engage, play and stay. To compete with indoor, more sedentary activities. In this session, we will examine playground trends that create kid magnets, facilitate multi-generational interaction and signature playgrounds that tell a community story. Discussions will also focus on the opportunities for stronger collaboration between playground designers and park planners.

Evidence-Based Landscape & Playground Design

April 6 | 11:30 am

Transforming play into development.

More than just play, children with developmental disorders benefit from strategically designed sensory playgrounds and sensory gardens. A study, completed by the STAR Center in Denver, Colo., evaluated the outcomes of outdoor play by children, therapists and families experiencing the play space as a natural setting for rich, multisensory occupational therapy interactions.

A new approach to inclusive playground design.

Playgrounds are a place for play and learning—where kids develop physical and cognitive skills and build social relationships. However, not all playgrounds are welcoming to people of varying abilities. During this continuing education session, you will learn about the changing population of children on the playground, and how to create playground designs that meet their unique needs.
