Spray Play For All: Designing Inclusive Splash Parks

10:15am to 11:15am

Location: TBA

Communities across the country are adding spray parks as one of the most highly requested and utilized recreation amenities. How can these be universally designed to be inclusive for people of all ages and abilities? This session will examine the best practices for creating spray parks that are fun for people with and without disabilities, children, parents and grandparents alike. Through the example of the Parkersburg, WV inclusive splash pad, participants will see these best practices through images and video as well as learn how this community was able to fund development of the splash pad as part of their pool complex renovation.
