Enhancing Aquatic Design Through Discovery Play

CEU Accreditation: LA CES, 1.5; APLD, 1.5

Presented by: Ryan McDowell
Friday, February 8th - 3:30 - 5:00 PM

Course Description:

It's through the senses that children discover the world. Designing aquatic play areas that encompass on touch, sight, sound and collaborative play allow children to explore beyond the bounds of fun and into a wonder world that stimulates development and evokes thoughtful play. During this session, attendees will learn key trends in aquatic play design that go beyond traditional bounds of budget, space and aesthetics to incorporate elements of discovery-style play that encourages engagement and stimulation for years to come.


With a problem-solving, entrepreneurial style, Ryan oversees the development of over 12 markets for aquatic play pads and regularly consults landscape architects and municipal designers to optimize smart, safe, fun and exciting play environments. As a key touch point and resource for the three projects we plan to use as case studies, Ryan's experience and expertise will be invaluable to creating an engaging discussion. Furthermore, his passion for water management and willingness to create solutions "outside of the box" make him a natural inspiration for those wishing to design progressive aquatic play environments.
