Transform Your Playground With Water Playground Equipment
Transform playgrounds with water playground equipment that is sensory rich and engaging. Kids love to play with water, and adding water features to a playground helps them learn and explore in a fun way!
Ensure surfacing meets minimum ASTM and CPSC equipment standards. Locate composite (multi-activity) structures such that their play and traffic patterns complement each other.
Lakesides Splash Pad
The Lakesides Splash Pad is a one-of-a-kind aquatic playground experience. Located near the South Street Seaport, it features a large raised play structure with unique water spray elements and seven ground level water elements. The water spouts from the giant shark, shipwrecked boat and water umbrella all work together to provide children with a fun and interactive way to play.
The park is designed to offer an innovative and safe way to beat the summer heat. The splash pads are a great alternative to traditional sprinklers and they help reduce the amount of chlorine used in municipal swimming pools. They also help to cool the air by providing a natural water source that recirculates. The Lakesides Splash Pad system is operated using reclaimed wastewater, which is redirected to the city’s wastewater treatment plant when it’s not in use.
The large layout of this spray park features shallow rivers to run through, big rocks to climb on and plenty of space for kids to play. The spray park is also adjacent to the playgrounds so children can continue their summer adventures after a refreshing soak in the water.
After a multimillion dollar renovation, J.J. Byrne Playground is back, shining bright and ready to welcome Park Slope kids of all ages. The playground in Washington Park (Fifth Avenue between Third and Fourth Streets) water playground equipment features a separate area for little ones, old-school jungle gyms, and water features that come to life during the summer.
Kids can build structures using huge blue connecting foam blocks, run through a water cove with sprinklers and hoses (during the summer), or dig in the sandpit. There’s also plenty of equipment for older kids, including climbing pyramids and an aim-and-shoot water spray cannon that re-creates the Battle of Brooklyn during the Revolutionary War.
This Queens park isn’t just another playground — it’s a scientific adventure that lets kids learn through play with hands-on activities and lessons in mobility, balance, sight and sound, plus natural elements like sun, wind and water (during the summer). It’s so cool that even Bill Nye would approve.
A few local politicians and a bunch of neighborhood kids came out on Friday to celebrate the opening of this Park Slope favorite. Besides playground staples, the Fifth Avenue park hosts colonial-themed equipment that honors General George Washington and the Battle of Brooklyn. Councilmember Stephen Levin dressed up as General William Alexander, Borough President Marty Markowitz was General Israel Putnam and Parks Commissioner Kevin Jefferies donned his three-point hat as George Washington himself.
Central Park Conservancy Splash Pad
When temperatures soar in Houston, kids need a way to burn off boundless energy and keep cool. That’s where splash pads come in, offering zero-depth water play for the entire family.
The Central Park Conservancy is a non-profit that manages the 843-acres of Manhattan’s Central Park on behalf of New York City. The Conservancy’s crews provide services water playground equipment such as aerating and seeding lawns, raking leaves, pruning and planting trees, and maintaining ball fields and playgrounds.
In addition to their regular maintenance duties, the Conservancy crews have been rebuilding many of the Park’s 21 playgrounds over the last decade, upgrading them with new equipment and better integrating them into the Park’s landscapes. The work at Adventure Playground, along with other adventure-style playgrounds in the Park, has revealed that the modern layers of these parks are distinct from, but also a part of, the historic and natural landscapes they sit within.
This reimagined playground and splash pad features water geysers that shoot up to 12 feet in the air, activated by a touch-sensitive panel on a nearby structure. Kids are never sure when or how high the water will gush, so they can spend hours exploring and interacting with each other and the surrounding waterscape. The Conservancy is working to install similar interactive water features at other playgrounds throughout the Park.
Domino Sugar Playground
The Brooklyn waterfront is home to one of New York City’s most unique playgrounds. Domino Park Playground, which is also known as Sweetwater, was designed by Mark Reigelman and offers kids a fun journey through the sugar refining process.
The playground features ramps, tubes, a “conveyor belt,” catwalks, and stainless steel slides that look like industrial pipes. The playground is also filled with reclaimed wood and casts of original factory valves, offering kids a tactile connection to history. Designed to resemble parts of the old Domino Sugar factory, Sweetwater Playground is a great way for kids to learn about the rich industrial heritage that helped Williamsburg grow into the vibrant neighborhood it is today.
A slew of other fun activities await visitors to the five-acre park, including a bocce and volleyball court, a Danny Meyer taco stand, and a dog run. The park, which was developed by Two Trees Management and designed by James Corner Field Operations, also features a water area with great skyline views and a walkway along the riverfront.
The highlight of the Domino Park complex, however, is the playground. Featuring a replica of the old Domino Sugar Factory, kids can climb inside a cabin and silo to experience the sugar refining process first-hand. They can also clamber through tunnels, ride on conveyor belts and catwalks, and even be spit out from the Sugar Cube Centrifuge.
