There are many kinds of waterpark equipment for outdoor children’s park in the city. In an amusement park, which way to place the waterpark equipment can attract children more and have higher safety? Here are some guidelines and experiences on how to distribute outdoor children’s park equipment.
Highlight overall advantages
Some waterpark equipment attaches great importance to experience, while some attach great importance to appearance. We could make use of them, respectively.
Near the entrance of the park, colorful waterpark equipment can be placed to attract the most attention. After a period of operation, when the children are tired of the existing equipment, they would like to experience a new one.
At that time, you could consider placing the newly-established waterpark equipment in a prominent position. Only in this way can you highlight the advantages of the kid’s water playground and increase the exposure rate of new waterpark equipment.
There are so many devices in the outdoor children’s park. Each has its characteristics and advantages. When placing them, it should be combined with the surrounding types of equipment. It would be better that each area has a similar theme, which is convenient for children to play with the outdoor water slide they like and is also conducive to the daily maintenance of the outdoor water slide.
Popular and normal combination adjustment
The favorite waterpark equipment of children always differs. That’s why some of the waterpark equipment is particularly popular, while some of them are less attractive. In the face of this situation, we can’t blindly gather the popular kid’s water playground together, because they will lead to a very crowded area. So, we can combine the popular kid’s water playground with other less popular waterpark equipment so that more equipment can be patronized.
Children of different ages have different behavioral characteristics and preferences, physical conditions and psychological demands. When designing an outdoor children’s park, designers need to set up functional divisions reflecting age differences. In essence, there should be not only areas to meet the safety games of young children but also parent-child activity venues to meet the needs of teenagers and adults.
3 to 6-year-old children have a lively sense of exploration of the loving nature. But they are also lack of awareness and ability to protect themselves. We need to pay the greatest attention to the safety of outdoor water slides. For example, sufficient buffer area should be reserved around slide and swing; parts or corners of the outdoor water slide should be softened; non-toxic, environmentally friendly and flexible materials should be used for site pavement; attention should be paid to the size and pressure of water flowers for fountain devices, etc.
On the contrary, the giant slide with a specific stimulating experience would be suitable for children of 6-12 years old. They need more challenging waterpark equipment. The turning of the slide from top to bottom is mostly designed with multiple pipes. The height of the outdoor water slide is more abundant than that of the small ones, and numerous items will also be more abundant, bringing a better experience to the children.
In the process of landscape design of an outdoor children’s park, parents’ needs are also a critical consideration. Because children rely more on their parents, the proportion of parents is higher. Therefore, rest seats under the tree around each activity area need to set up, which is convenient for parents to care for and accompany their children easily.
To design the distribution in an amusement park well, it needs not only theories but also a mind to care for the customers. With the Dalang group, we could consider stepping into the visitors’ shoes and plan a better placement for your water parks.
