Waterplay unveils innovative ‘Grasslands’ aquatic play features

Waterplay unveils innovative ‘Grasslands’ aquatic play features
October 10, 2013

Waterplay® Solutions Corp. has introduced 'Grasslands', a collection of aquatic play features that ignite imaginations and bring waterplayers back to nature.

The nature-inspired group of products have been designed to transform any aquatic play space into a world full of wonder - with tall blades of grass and wildflowers, friendly insect characters, smooth surf stones and critter-shaped ground sprays, these products complement Waterplays revolutionary Discovery Stream, released earlier this year.

Introducing the product range, Waterplay President Jill White explains "the idea behind Grasslands is to create an oasis, a place where kids can take a break from today's digital world and explore elements of nature from a new perspective.

"Imagine walking into a park surrounded by blades of misty grass, and looking up to see a canopy of flowers, or an enchanting butterflyGrasslands encourages kids of all ages to explore."

With the release of Grasslands, Waterplay is adding more than 20 products to its aquatic play features line including misting and dry grasses at different heights and a Dew Drop dumping bucket that makes a splash.

Three types of spraying wildflowers are also included; a swaying Corn Poppy, an interactive spinning Blue Bottle and an Aneth Bloom, which provides shade with its blossoming canopy.

Grasslands also introduces a cast of characters; Sparx the dragonfly, Flutter the butterfly and Charlotte the spider - just waiting to make new friends. The surf stones, some spraying water and some not, can sit alongside a Discovery Stream, just like a natural stream. Finally, Grasslands incorporates interactive ground sprays - ants, a frog, a gecko and a snake - with a smart, flush-mounted design.

Designed by Markus Ehring, world-renowned public designer and owner of numerous innovative patents, the collection of Grasslands products are visually stunning and cleverly designed, from a spider that weaves a web of water to the modular Discovery Stream that can be configured to fit any space. Inspired by nature, designed for fun, Grasslands is now available to the global market.

Waterplay® Solutions, a global provider of premium aquatic recreation equipment, offer a product range that includes aquatic play features, slide activity centres, waterslides, urban water features and water management solutions.
