Splash Pad Benefits
Children grow through play in so many ways. We want to BRING BACK PLAY!
Unscripted free play to encourage children to create their own experiences. We want to create a deeper kind of play that promotes social play, so children interact with each other. Encourage discovery play, so children explore the worlds of cause and effect and prioritize inclusive play, so people of all ages and abilities can join in.
Encourage physical, functional and social development in children (and adults) of ALL ages and abilities.
