Every year on May 15, families all over the world celebrate playing, learning, and growing together. International Day of Families was launched by the UN in 1993 as a way to highlight the role communities play in in family dynamics. Every year, the day focuses on a different theme such as education, migration, fathers, mothers, and, in 2019—climate action!
April 22 marks World Earth Day—a date of coming together and exploring innovative, actionable approaches to environmental protection. At Vortex, where every drop counts, we're taking this opportunity to explore some of the sustainability options Splashpads offer communities and resorts. Specifically, we want to discuss the different water management systems Splashpads employ.
Before we know it, the thaw will be upon us, scarves and mittens will be stored away, and families will be out in droves getting the most out of the sunny season.

We've spent our last two posts exploring Water Journey's nature-driven design and philosophy. Today, we're diving into applications. And who better to guide us through a discussion about water park design than our very own landscape architect Scott Stefanc?
If you're just tuning in, we spent much of our last post discussing our Water Journey™ solutions while teasing some of our new products around the corner. In a nutshell, we explored how our design team endeavored to create a water play area that would be as malleable and shape-shifting as Mother Nature herself.
