Orrville already had a very popular swimming pool at Orr Park. However, the Wayne County city wanted to provide something more for toddlers and smaller kids, as well as a play space for families outside of regular pool hours.
Working through the NPPGov co-operative purchasing program, the city connected with Vortex to design a vibrant new Splashpad for Orr Park. The purchasing program not only saved Orrville money, it also expedited the entire process, ensuring it could meet a very tight timeline: the community welcomed the new Splashpad in time for its annual July 4th celebrations.
The aquatic play area features a host of features for kids of all ages and abilities, including the iconic Twinsplash and Astra No3. There’s no question the Splashpad has been a huge hit right from opening day. And because access is free, it has been particularly appreciated by families who cannot afford a pool pass.

« I want to thank (Vortex) for all the work (the team) did to make sure our date of July 1 was reached. …That date was especially important to us because of the huge turnout we get every year at our 4th of July firework show. The weather was perfect for the opening of a splash pad and our park was full of people all this past weekend. Our guys were very pleased with the folks doing the work for Vortex and spoke very highly of them. »
