Tavares Splash Park

BESH was selected to provide surveying, engineering design and construction management services to the City of Tavares for a splash playground. The Tavares splash park is a part of the larger Wooton Park project, also designed by BESH during the City of Tavares downtown redevelopment. The splash park consists of a 50′ diameter pad, coated with a non-slip Tuff-Coat, multi-colored concrete coating, providing both a non-slip surface and character to the park. The splash park features were custom designed, in partnership with the equipment manufacturer, Rain-Drop Products, to thematically match the City’s vision. The centerpiece of the splash park is a seaplane, complete with propellers which spin with water, misting valves on the pontoons and a rain curtain off the back side of the wings. The treatment equipment was state-of-the-art, and includes Ultraviolet disinfection of the recirculating water. All equipment is housed in a custom designed and constructed gazebo to thematically match other structures in the park. The Tavares splash park was the recipient of the 2011 Dream Designs Award from Aquatics International!
