Water Play Areas at Gianone Park and Garden Acres Park

Stockton, California

Foothill Associates prepared the conceptual design, facilitated community workshops, and developed construction documents for two spray parks for San Joaquin County at Gianone Community Park and Garden Acres Park. We worked closely with the County to ensure the tight timeline and budget constraints associated with a grant opportunity were met, while also addressing concerns about vandalism and graffiti. Both spray parks were designed to minimize the potential problems and create a safe, user-friendly space with themes revolving around interactive learning, bright colors, and water play. Integrating the new spray parks required careful retrofitting of the surrounding areas, particularly of the existing irrigation system.
