Building Aquatic Play Spaces
It is important that an aquatic play space promotes children’s development, learning and positive dispositions for life. This session discusses the foundations and best practices in aquatic play design. How do we manage the water? How do we provide a facility that attracts patrons and keeps them coming back? How do we define success? Join us as we unite the concepts of play, design, and inclusivity to move forward into building successful aquatic environments.
