Incorporate Water & Nature Play at Conservation Areas

Exploring a Conservation Area to learn about nature has always been a popular field trip for kids of all grade levels. Although it's almost the end of the school year, there’s still plenty of opportunities to attract children and families to Conservation Centres throughout the summer months.

Consider combining nature exploration and water play this summer by adding a spray park to your Conservation Centre. Water Odyssey, a division of PlayCore and the leading designer and manufacturer of interactive water features, is offering an affordable water-fun to beat the heat this summer. Many local Conservation Authorities are choosing to replace old swimming ponds with spray parks built in natural wilderness surroundings to increase outdoor engagement. 

See the water fun for yourself!

Conserve Water + Save Money!

As the largest manufacturer of modular pumping and water treatment systems, Water Odyssey is committed to water recycling with its Hydro Launch Pod system. The compact Hydro Launch Pod houses the mechanical workings of a spray park and is unlike complex systems as it uses NO electricity and requires little maintenance, making it an ideal choice for budget sensitive projects and unsupervised facilities. Since the flow rate and flow duration is adjustable, you can choose to reduce the amount of water going to each feature to save on water usage. A tour of the spray park would make a perfect addition to a water safety program.

Nature Play + Education!

We can’t forget about nature! For some kids, a trip to their local Conservation Authority can be the first time they develop a greater understanding and appreciation for nature. GameTime, North America's largest manufacturer of playground equipment (and also a division of PlayCore), offers a revolutionary collection of play products called “PlayTrails.

As children and families explore a trail, they encounter nature-themed play pockets that promote physical activity and fun, as well as educational signage with fun facts (see bugs and leaves examples below) that allow kids to discover fascinating facts about nature through observation. See the entire nature-inspired line HERE.
