I would like to get people of Cantley, Bessacarr and surrounding areas to help support the next generation!
I personally feel this would bring more people into our community and for children to enjoy the great outdoors. Children of today need to be outdoors more as there are TOO MANY computer/games gadgets out there which stops children being active and outdoors.
The Splash Park would have to be specially adapted for disabled children and users. To possibly add a Sensory area for those who get overwhelmed or prefer to touch and feel different items using frames or sliders.
The splash park would have:
- Slip proof/soft floor
- Climbing frames
- Water shoots from the ground
- Water cannons
- Enclosed fencing
- Benches/picnic benches
- Suitable for disabled users
- Sensory area
I understand that this is going to be costly, I am looking down different avenues at the moment. I'm looking for to giftings and doing fundraisers to help make this possible.
To give children the life they deserve and that's to be happy, healthy and active.
The park would be open all year round but the water would be turned off due to cold weather/colder months.
The park would benefit from having an onsite café selling refreshments and ice creams. This could be means of income to pay for water, chemicals, rent, maintenance (if something breaks) and the up keep of the park.
The community is responsible to keep the park clean and tidy.
