Fountaineers | Case Study

Year: 2016

Chineham Park, Basingstoke

A paddling pool in Chineham Park, Basingstoke received a new lease of life as a splash pad thanks to a project completed by Fountaineers.

Working on behalf of Basingstoke and Deane Borough Council, this project involved converting an old paddling pool to a brand new zero depth splash pad; the project also included the provision of a new fence, picnic benches and rubber safety surface. This large project features 350m² of splash pad area and incorporates 29 play items from the Fun Stream range of equipment including the exciting Water Mushroom, two Totem Poles and a Water Cage as well as a host of other exciting flush mounted play items such as the Water Hop Scotch.

The splash pad utilises a single use fresh water system and is divided into five interactive play zones to help children create their own water based adventures and explore the joys of water play for hours on end.  The splash pad is controlled from a touch screen control panel and features automatic water level control, rain and frost detection and a range of other useful features to help maximise play value whilst minimising operating costs. 

Fountaineers Managing Director Colin Knight is really pleased with the result:

“This splash pad is one of the largest we have built and we had to overcome a number of challenges during this project. I am really pleased with the finished result and I hope that the local community will enjoy using this facility for many years to come.”

A splash pad is a great way to bring the excitement and discovery of water play to your park, garden or leisure facility. If you would like more information about how Fountaineers can help turn your ideas to reality then please contact us for more details about the splash pads we offer.
