Recreation Management Magazine Gains Insight from Cloward H2O

Have a question concerning Aquatic Engineering or Waterpark Design? Just ask the professionals. Rick Dandes over at Recreation Management Magazine did just that when writing his latest article titled Trickle Down Theory – Boosting Waterpark Fun to Grow Revenues, Build Community.

“An interesting design development at smaller parks is aquatic recreational areas that residents can enjoy at no additional charge.These areas often include interactive water features with artificial rivers that integrate splashpads and spray fountains.

Check out the article below or view a PDF version of the magazine HERE.

Nothing excites a pond lover quite like clear, sparkling water. Regardless of the size of an architectural water body, if the water is murky or cloudy it makes for a poor impression. In contrast, clear water tends to be more enjoyable. However, clarity is only one variable that makes up the general quality of your water. While murky water does not necessarily mean poor water quality, it may be a precursor to quality problems.

Water quality is a balancing act involving a number of important factors. For live systems, the balance between beneficial […]
