Water Playground in Bachgärten of Schonungen
Splashing and experimenting fun at the water playground Bachgärten in Schonungen
Refreshing and above all exciting fun for little naturalists and water rats is offered by the new large water playground Bachgärten in Schonungen in the district of Schweinfurt in Bavaria. Employees of the municipality have created a flagship in terms of public play space in the district on their own initiative.
Playing with water and sand is not only a lot of fun, but also has a high educational value. A water playground offers children an excellent opportunity to train their understanding of science, to experience natural phenomena up close, to experiment and to be creative. In addition, the children train their motor and social skills. The water playground is designed as a hilly landscape and invites the children to experiment with the fascinating element with its versatile water games made of stainless steel. The water from the Steinach stream is pumped up manually with a crank pump and then finds its way down via gutters. Of course, only after it has been dammed, diverted and driven by the children in funnels, basins, through weirs and cogs. At the end of its exciting journey through the water landscape, it does not simply seep away: through an ingenious pipe system, the water is channelled, for example, into a directly adjacent Kneipp basin, or another pipe ends at a sand and mud playground with a sand lift and suspension railway for the very young.
