Guest Post By: Dr. Beverlie Dietze. With a shared commitment to connect the world through play, we are excited to present to you the following guest post by Dr. Beverlie Dietze, an internationally-known author, researcher and expert in the field of early childhood education and outdoor play. It’s Not just a Puddle to Splash in ……
Long awaited by the municipality of Chiguayante in south Chile, this park space was designed to recover abandoned grounds next to the historic river Bio Bio. The splash pad is the first part of a larger project to connect the surrounding neighbours with the river, and at the same time provide a safe and exciting environment for kids to play.
Playground experts Urbanplay Chile worked with Waterplay to select a combination of tall sprays, buckets and ground sprays to engage kids of all ages while also accommodating users with different capabilities. Bright colours create a fun, cheerful and welcoming space for the local community. The splash pad represents the first phase of a 17.000 square metre initiative that will include playgrounds, sports facilities, landscaping areas and other services.
