Greenwood Park Splashpad
For the City of Worcester Parks Department, we developed a new model for the city’s water-based recreation program at Greenwood Park. This interactive splash pad facility is a recreational resource that offers the city the ability to operate the site without the full compliment of lifeguard staff, minimal chemical balancing requirements, and an extended season of use. Through the design, Weston & Sampson coordinated closely with several manufacturers of splash pad features to ensure the design best fit the site and existing conditions, as well as the City’s operating limitations. The new recirculation system will limit the use of potable water and enable the city to run a far more efficient system than the typical drain to waste model.
