Waterplayground Brienz, Switzerland
A play area on stone steps by the lake
This water play area is located directly on the shore of Lake Brienz. There are pumps and waterwheels, nozzles, gutters and water bowls. Using the Archimedean screw, the children pump water from the lake directly into one of the many stainless steel channels.
Due to the special location on the stone steps, special solutions had to be found during the planning stage with regard to the drop area and water depth. The edges of the stones were smoothed, playground equipment has rounded corners and a fence protects the children from falling into the deep water.
