Description
The popularity of Splash Pads installed in community parks, urban areas and public plazas continues to increase. As the demands for this type of amenity grows, more and more design professionals need to be equipped with the knowledge to be able to design sustainable and state-of-the art zero-depth solutions.

This course will bring you up to date with the latest innovations on how to design environmentally responsible Spray parks. Important factors such as site topography and product selection (material, nozzles, controller etc…) are part of the design process; we will address those in this class. However the most important considerations when designing or building a sustainable Splash pad still remain by far the water management system.

New technology has been developed to maximize the use of water while minimizing environmental impact. We will elaborate on the newest advancement in that domain; the capture and repurpose system. We will also touch on more traditional water management strategies available in the market today.
