Apollo Projects was appointed by Christchurch City Council (CCC), to facilitate the design and build of the new Scarborough Splashpad to replace the earthquake damaged paddling pool. Completed in December 2014 the facility includes a zero depth splash pad with a variety of water toys including geysers, a water canon, twist top and rainbow spray hoops which then extends into a paddling pool.
The project included a new plant room, pool deck surrounds, seating and shade gazebos, solar charging table and a shade sail for sun protection. It’s stunning location is at one of Christchurch’s premier beach locations, looking out to Scarborough beach adjacent to the beach café which makes it a very popular and busy summer attraction.
The paddling pool is a stainless steel walled pool with a special PVC membrane which includes a cushioned floor to provide a slip resistant surface and fall protection for the little ones.
The filtration system is world leading which does not require a balance tank and uses significantly less water during backwashing whilst providing exceptional water quality.
The end result has been a fantastic facility which is proving to be very popular and has been enthusiastically embraced by the community.
