Splash Pad coming to Henderson Park this Summer

Located at Henderson Park, work will begin in mid-March on the 16-water feature pad, spread throughout 3,000 sq. ft., and painted with shades of blue, green, and yellow.

Brenham Parks and Recreation staff collaborated with Vortex Aquatic Structures Inc. to come up with a new and innovative water play design to foster imagination and social play. The features are grouped into three levels: toddler bay, family bay, and teen bay.

The toddler bay features gentle ground sprays and low-flow water features such as Spray Loops, an Aqua Dome, and the Alto feature for a more sensory play experience. The highlight of the family bay is the Sunspray which creates a spiraling water effect with its twirling sphere. The teen bay will offer a 7 ft. Silhouette and two Luna Cannons with orbs that will bring a new level of interaction to the play feature as kids will be able to rotate the cannons 360 degrees. And finally, at the center of the splash pad will feature a SuperWave.

Two bollard activators will be located on the splash pad that initiates the water sequence of play features, controls water consumption, and helps reduce waste.

Funding for the splash pad project comes from the Brenham Community Development Corporation (BCDC) and HEB Tournament of Champions Charitable Trust.
