AMBUCS Southwest Chapter approached the City of Amarillo Parks and Recreation Department with a desire to build a fully-accessible Splash Pad inspired by their city’s historical values and meant to serve as a playground for the residents of Amarillo and the surrounding area.
6 Months of Construction
The addition of the Splash Pad to the Medical Center Park was intended to provide a safe and accommodating water play area for those with physical disabilities. What we created accomplished so much more. Now Medical Center Park is a popular destination for many surrounding areas as well as for the residents of the city of Amarillo.
Splash Pad and access area totaled over 5,000 square feet. Topography in the park presented some challenges for the designers to overcome while integrating with a newly-constructed, accessible playground.
