Cognitive and physical growth
Studies show that playing with water provides children with a rich sensory experience, which is important for sensory integration and cognitive development. Not a bad benefit to go along with the exercise and all the fun to be had at one of these splash parks, am I right?
Another interesting benefit that children get from playing at a splash pad is the development of their imagination. The children get to observe and try to understand the physics of the water that they are playing with.
