Not every installation has to be indoors. Modern playgrounds are not only swings, carousels or sandpits. Children’s expectations are growing, and the equipment available in such places, beside fun, should also provide educational function. The innovative recreational and educational space of HYDROFUN is both fun and beneficial for youngsters, a perfect way to spend time in open air.
Kids can explore in an attractive form topics related with retention and use of rainwater and how hydro-technical devices work. The Educational Water Park HYDROFUN is a perfect place for parents, who may find there a moment of relaxation after shopping.
This kind of a park may have a similar purpose like rain gardens that use rainwater for watering plants, creating beautiful green zones – so important in a packed space of a shopping mall. Collected water may also be used for irrigation, watering plants or for municipal purposes.

The Educational Water Park is supplied with rainwater that comes from roofs of nearby buildings and is preliminary purified and stored in the HYDROZONE BENEFIT reservoir. This solution saves space, especially in vast shopping centres with sufficient underground infrastructure, like multi-level underground car parks.
