Splash Pad #3 cropCurrent Projects

The Delphos Kiwanis Club recently announced the construction of a new 4,000 square foot “SplashPad” system to be added on the west side of the existing Community Swimming Pool at Stadium Park.

The design, funding and installation of this aquatic play area will again be spearheaded by the Delphos Kiwanis and will involve the collaboration between our Club, VORTEX Aquatic Structures International, the

Delphos Stadium Club, the City of Delphos and the Parks and Recreation Department.

The design of this innovative structure allows it to function as a self-contained, standalone system incorporated within the existing footprint of the City Swimming Pool, but will not place any additional pressure on the existing pool operations.

Once completed the SplashPadwill be turned over to City of Delphos as a community asset, operated and maintained by the Parks and Recreation Department ,and incorporated as a part of their annual membership program.

Over the course of the past three years our Club has carefully researched and evaluated a number of aquatic play areas and waterpark systems that were either standalone systems or incorporated as part of an existing municipal swimming pool. Part of that due diligence process we noted that in nearly every case where they were part of an existing pool system the adding of an aquatic play area has significantly increased membership and has revitalized the use of the community pools.

With our research and planning completed we now go about the business of raising the $350,000.00 required to get this SplashPadconstructed and operational on-or-before the targeted date of June 1, 2017.

Even though our previous track record for funding and constructing playground systems gives us great confidence, we’re still very aware that this project is the single largest and most aggressive ever for our Club. It will no doubt require the collective commitment and financial support of every segment of our community.
