The city of Moore Parks & Recreation Department sought to improve facilities in underserved areas of the community. For this particular site, completed in 2014, officials chose a splashpad with distinct activity bays to not only stimulate and challenge children of all ages, but encourage cross-generational and collaborative play. In total, the park includes 20 aboveground and 15 ground-level spray features.
The site was part of the rebuilding process after a devastating 2012 tornado. Local elementary school students helped choose the forest theme, with its whimsical, giant water leaves and trees, colorful misting cattails and various animal motifs. Tan integrally colored concrete was used on much of the floor to resemble the forest, while a dark brown walking path leads to a blue pond.
