Three Metro Parks Spraygrounds
ORB Architects, now part of INNOVA Architects, worked with The Metropolitan Parks District of Tacoma to design three new sprayground conversions to replace the wading pools at Jefferson Park, McKinley Play field and South Park. The grand openings took place on Saturday, June 29, 2007. This project has established the new standard for Metro Parks Tacoma and all future spraygrounds. Each are individually designed to integrate with existing playground features.
ORB supported public meetings with kids and community groups to review spray park options. The project scope also included the addition of recirculation/filtration/sanitation systems and supporting mechanical and electrical systems, asphalt paving and markings, gravel surfacing, chain link fencing, storm drainage, landscaping, irrigation and site lighting.
