In North and Latin America, water play areas have long been part of the urban landscape. But anyone who thinks that the warmer climate is the only reason is wrong. Because there are good arguments for a water play area, which in the first place have nothing to do with the climate.
The trend is for fewer people to go on vacation. The families who can book twice a year are becoming fewer – but the need for recreation and rest remains, or rather increases, as the stresses in the professions increase.
The bottom line is that families need local recreation opportunities .
Parks and green spaces are already popular places for families to spend time. The balance on the doorstep promotes the satisfaction of the population and identification with the city.
Water is physics you can touch. If you observe children, you can easily see that the attraction of water is anchored in your nature. Therefore, it is no wonder that the sea is so popular as a vacation destination. Children are happy with water.
Just like at the beach, children learn skills with educational value at our water play areas. These include: Gross and fine motor skills; imagination; forward thinking; risk assessment; self-awareness; integration; creativity; communication; empathy and responsibility; and other social skills that are essential in our diverse society.
Finally, the obvious: hot summers have been a part of Germany since recent years. Global climate changes continue to promise high temperatures, causing people to seek cooling.

Adventures for little discoverers – In the middle of Cologne: An example.
“Look mom, a dragon” – we hear little Nils calling from the construction fence. With his nose stuck through the grille, he looks wide-eyed at what our fitters are installing on our universal floor anchor in CENTRAL COLOGNE: a kite.
Between the Colonius TV Tower and the chirping of wild parakeets, our installers are working to complete the largest ROIGK WATER GAME AREA IN A PUBLIC SPACE to date.
So far, we have realized the clear majority of our water play areas in public pools. But the trend shows that urban parks and grounds also offer potential for such attractive facilities.
88 water points and 26 pipes make a great area on a total of 1260 m², which promises the little explorer many an adventure.
