For today, and future generations...

Sustainability not only has environmental and economic dimensions, but social as well. In part 3 of this series, we will explore the Social Impact of Sustainable Splashpad® Design

Play for all

Making sure your Splashpad® has different areas that caters to different ages and development levels is important to make sure that fun and social interaction can be enjoyed by all. Vortex’s three bay age-based planning ensures that your aquatic play area stimulates and challenges visitors of all abilities. Bay designs appeal to everyone by providing play areas for families, toddlers and teens. The main area is the Family Bay – appropriate for all age groups. Toddler Bay is created specifically for younger children, and Teen Bay gives ample space and opportunity to challenge the most energetic members of the family.

Intelligence at play

Value of Play is the foundation in the development of our solutions. All our products are designed to be a source of enjoyable moments and fun memorable experiences for every member of the family. Discover the key Value of Play factors of our Splashpad® features with the following criteria.
