This Spanish municipality in Catalonia had an aging urban pond that had for years served as a decorative feature. In an effort to better use the space, they transformed it into a public park. An innovative suburban Splashpad® was installed. It blends aesthetically with its surroundings and provides high play value to all members of the community. Made of highly durable, vandalism-proof materials, the absence of deep-water features makes it accessible to children of all ability levels, and parents can relax knowing their kids are safe at play with friends. The most enchanting feature emerges at sundown, when a colorful light show adds another dimension to the installation and creates a visually stunning aquatic playground experience. This expends play later into the evening, which means more foot traffic for nearby businesses.

« This new Splashpad® implies a major shift in community play habits. Now they have an open space that is free, inclusive, inspiring, safe, creative and refreshing, where children can play, have fun and cool off on hot summer days. »
« I will always remember the opening of the Splashpad®. Children were excited to start splashing and you could see the anticipation and happiness in their faces. The park offers attractive play experiences and is a great asset for Castellar. »
