Jocks Lane, Bracknell, Berkshire
Youngsters in Berkshire are able to enjoy splashing around thanks to a new splash pad at the Jocks Lane Park in Bracknell.
Fountaineers responded to a project brief from Bracknell Town Council to convert the existing paddling pool into a zero depth splash pad facility. Firstly, a series of exciting concept designs were produced using our in-house 3D design software, these concepts were refined and developed to generate the final design.
The splash pad has 13 flush mounted play items and one above ground play item which are all from the Fun Stream Whale Splash Pad range of equipment; the splash pad also features two shallow splash pools.
Children can interact with the splash pad by pressing any one of three activation points which start an exciting and interactive display of water jets. The water used on the splash pad is collected in a grey water recycling tank which is then re-used for landscape and garden irrigation and watering.
Fountaineers Managing Director Colin Knight was delighted with the final result:
“I am so pleased with this splash pad; it presented a number of design and construction challenges, however, our engineers have worked together to produce a super facility which I think will prove popular with the local children.”
