SPLASH PARK The splash park is an innovative structure for children learn to play with water, as well as learn to cooperate with their peers. Water flows through the whole structure with the roof creating screens, as well as mist effects. Automatic sensors on both structure facades will splash water rhythmically when the bottle-like structures completely fill with water. Shade trees on the perimeter allow parents to sit and watch children in the park.

LAVA CAVE When children jump on the trampoline above, the shock from the trampoline creates a bubbling effect similar to a lava lamp. When young kids are inside the space, they are surrounded by the colorful bubbles. There is also a track inside for children to play cars. The structure is made of clear recycled plastic allowing light into the space and parents to view children inside.
