Spray Pad Practitioner Program
Remember running through the backyard sprinkler as kids? In the 90s, the idea of the sprinkler came to life in a whole new way when the recreation world started to include spray pads, sometimes called "splash pads". Since that time, the spray pad has become the most requested piece of park equipment in North America. New urban areas and existing alike want this type of equipment in their community.
With this increasing demand, are you prepared to deal with the choices (and possibly trade-offs) that will need to be made when dealing with the installation of this type of equipment? Location, required features, surface materials, water treatment and testing, signage, maintenance and inspections, and more, all need to be considered when installing a spray pad. Learn how to make this important play feature the best that it can be for the children in your community.
