Newberg Splash Pad
A splash pad is an area for
water play that has no standing water. This is said to eliminate the need for
lifeguards or other supervision, as there is practically no risk of drowning. There
can be ground nozzles that spray water upwards out of the splash pad's rain
deck, but can also include sprays, dumps, bubblers, etc.
The showers and ground nozzles are often controlled by a motion sensor, to run for a limited time. The water could be freshwater or recycled and treated water, which creates a safe environment without being dictated by water consumption concerns.
Splash pads always appeal to young children, but can also be designed to include more sophisticated aquatic play features to appeal to adults as well. These urban beaches form an oasis designed with water play as one of its various usages.
