Kelowna, Canada­—March 26, 2018Waterplay® Solutions is excited to join leading play researchers in America for the 2018 Conference on the Value of Play. As a conference presenter and Gold Sponsor, Waterplay is honoured to support this high-profile initiative to build awareness on the critical value of play to all lives.  

Joining thought leaders from multiple industry sectors, Waterplay Business Development Manager, Melinda Pearson, will be presenting ‘Inclusive Design for the Aquatic Splash Pad.’ Drawing on over 20 years’ experience in the aquatics industry, Pearson will guide participants through key design considerations in creating rewarding water play experiences for community members of all ages and abilities. The session will be eligible for CEU and Landscape Architect (LA) CES credits. 

The conference takes place April 8-11 at Clemson University in South Carolina and is led by the US Play Coalition, an association that aims to promote the value of play for people of all ages in response to societal trends of declining opportunities for play.
