CRS Installs New Splashpad in West Bend, Wis., Park
Commercial Recreation Specialists (CRS) recently coordinated installation of a Splashpad located in West Bend, Wis., at Regner Park, according to Ron Romens, CRS president. The lily pad shape and pond theme of the Splashpad included frogs, cattails and water leaves, and was designed to complement the existing park area, including West Bend’s only outside swimming facility, Regner Park Beach. “This park has been part of the recreational landscape here for generations and is celebrating its 75th anniversary this year,” said Craig Hoeppner, director of parks, recreation and forestry. He continued, “We believe this Splashpad will bring the next generation of West Bend families to the park because it was the right combination with the existing sand beach at the park. It also provides an exciting water element for kids, without the construction and maintenance costs associated with a pool.” Splashpads offer a zero-depth (no standing water) aquatic solution that combines the sensations of different water effects – flowing, misting and jetting – suitable for different age groups and abilities. A variety of in-ground and above-ground features are included in the Regner Park Rotary Splashpad such as a Ground Geyser, Water Jelly, Bucket Trio and Water Tunnel.
