VIDEO: Parque Ribera Bio Bio Splash Pad

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.
