Water Odyssey's Fun Forms add an extra touch of creativity to splash pads!

It’s a no-brainer that kids and splash pads go hand in hand in the summertime. There’s nothing like splashing feet in cool water or running through the mister to keep children’s temperatures down and their spirits up on hot days.

The traditional look of a splash pad is fairly simple; water jets spraying up from the ground paired with spray features made from bent metal. Water Odyssey, a division of Fountain People, Inc. and the leader in the design and manufacturing of aquatic play equipment, is bringing a new dimension of fun and creativity to splash pad designs with Fun Forms.

Hydro_Launch_Pod

Low-maintenance Hydro Launch Pod is the economic solution for aquatic play

When the Canadian summer heat hits your area, it is crucial for your safety (and sanity) to find places to cool off. In the past, families without backyard pools would turn to their local wading pool or public pool to beat the heat, however, more and more of these pools are being decommissioned due to high operational costs and liabilities.

So where do you go to keep cool on a blazing hot summer day without resorting to opening fire hydrants? As it turns out, spray parks are the hot new trend to beat the heat, but not your wallet. And while it’s widely believed that spray parks are more expensive than playgrounds due to its product costs and maintenance, many would be surprised to learn of the many modern-day cost-effective spray park options.
