The Kinsmen Club of Sackville is proud to announce a new project for the community...the Kinsmen Park Splash Pad (Sackville NS)
A splash pad is an area for water play that has no standing water. This is said to eliminate the need for lifeguards or other supervision, as there is practically no risk of drowning. Splash pads have been around in the commercial industry for decades.
Typically there are ground nozzles that spray water upwards out of the splash pad's raindeck. There are also other water features such as a rainbow (semicircular pipe shower), a mushroom shower, or a tree shower.
The showers and ground nozzles are often controlled by a motion sensor, to run for limited time. Typically the water is either freshwater, or recycled and treated water, that is typically treated to at least the same level of quality as swimming pool water standards.
Many splash pads are designed to appeal to young children, but a more recent trend has been to design similar spaces that include more sophisticated aquatic play features that appeal to adults as well.
More generally, these urban beaches (urbeaches), each form an urban oasis designed so that waterplay is among one of its various usages. Although not limited to waterplay, an urbeach is multi-purpose.
Many splash pads have some features such as fine mist, that are designed to be moderate enough for children. Other splash fountains are designed for adults, e.g. for joggers or concert goers to cool off in.
Intelligence at Play
A Splashpad® is a zero-depth aquatic solution that takes its cue from nature by combining the sensations of different water movements – flowing, misting, jetting for uncompromising design and unequalled play adventure.
The Kinsmen Park Splashpads® will be built with premium materials, attention to quality and ex-pectation of operational ease. Splashpad® provides entertainment for the entire family.
The design of the Kinsmen Park Splash Pad has been comprehensively engineered to be fully special needs accessible
Today Vortex Splashpads are featured in prominent places such as city parks, recreational centers, hotel & resorts, campgrounds, daycares and home developments providing a positive experience to the entire community be it socially, architecturally, or simply from the very essence of learning through play.

Volunteers help themselves to better health when they help others.
Recent research has found a significant connection between volunteering and good health. The report shows that volunteers have greater longevity, higher functional ability, lower rates of depression and less incidence of heart disease.
A study of adults age 65 and older found that the positive effect of volunteering on physical and mental health is due to the personal sense of accomplishment an individual gains from his or her volunteer activities.
It’s also good for our youth. Colleges look at the volunteer records of new applicants. Those who volunteer 100 hours a year (just two hours a week) are acknowledged favorably by colleges and universities nationwide as competition for acceptance increases.
