If you’re noticing more spray parks and splash pads, in a wider variety of locations than you used to, it’s not just a popular trend. Municipalities, amusement parks, hotels and resorts, camping and RV parks, and commercial and residential real estate developers are all installing spray park equipment for good reason. 

While having a spray park or splash pad can help set your facility apart from the competition, there are other benefits that are specific to each sector too. 

Benefits of Splash Pads & Spray Parks 

Here are just a few ways that installing a water play area can improve the success of different businesses and organizations.

Municipalities

Desirable communities attract residents. Residents who are willing to invest more in their neighbourhoods. An investment that keeps property values and tax bases higher. Even a small splash pad in a community centre will attract families that might otherwise not take another look.

Hotels & Resorts

A spray park not only attracts more family bookings, which often means extra rooms, but it also keeps those families on-site for longer during their stay.

Residential Real Estate Developers

Imagine you have a young family and want to buy a new home. You’re considering two neighbourhoods that are very much alike, except one has a beautiful splash pad and one doesn’t. Which one will you choose?

Shopping Centres

You need new, creative ways, those not necessarily related to retail, to attract more shoppers to your centre. A spray park gives parents the opportunity to shop uninterrupted. But, perhaps even better, that spray park puts the “pester power” of every child who wants to use it right inside the homes of your shoppers.
