Bates Park Splash Pad
Bates Park Splash Pad offers a water play experience for all ages and abilities. Not only does the BucketTrio with Acrylic deliver a contemporary design aesthetic, but its three buckets randomly pour generous amounts of water onto waiting kids below. The HydroHelix with Acrylic carries on the unique design while engaging kids with the fun and complex water pattern as they twist the handle 360-degrees. Colorful HydroSpheres and the WhirlPad add to the social play, and ground sprays allow for game play as kids dodge or engage in the random sprays. Best of all, SkyWays® commercial shade structures were included along the perimeter to provide a space for visitors to cool down.

All three girls hold onto the hand hold of the trunk of the pillar and slowly walk in a circle. As they move faster the water spraying from the circular roof panel falls farther and farther away from the girls. The camera focuses on the three girls as they spin the pillar. The girls smile and wince as they get wet from the falling water. Camera focuses up to the circular roof panel as it spins and sprays water. Scene switches to the three girls as they stand near a tall tree like designed water activity. Large posts reach up and slightly curve out like branches with suspended cherry shaped buckets. Water slowly trickles into the buckets causing them to fill and dump at unexpected times. The girls stand under the buckets waiting for them to tip. One girl adjusts her position under the falling water as one of the bucket tips. Camera switches to a full elevated view of the splay pad. The three girls continue to play under the dumping buckets.

Camera switches to a focused view of the dumping cherry buckets. One bucket tips, then another tips. Camera switches to a ground view up to one of the cherry buckets as it dumps water down onto the camera. As the water drenches to camera blurring the view the scene quickly switches to a close-up of two girls faces as they are splashed with the falling water from the cherry buckets.

Scene switches to a view of a girl as she covers the whole of streaming water from one of the three-foot-tall posts with the green globe on top. She pulls her hand away smiles and lifts both arms up in the air, she walks through the other to water streams from the other globe pillars.
