Gillham Park is a linear park that serves several neighborhoods in downtown Kansas City, Missouri. The parks hosts a wading pool that is over-loved by residents and too expensive with too much liability for the city to maintain. Gillham Park Sprayground captures the need for the community to engage with water. 

Landworks Studio designed an artful play space that will provide multiple venues for family activities in the summer months and beyond.  Integrated near an existing playground with connection to the historic fountain area, this spraypark has interactive ways to cool off, a synthetic turf berm for picnics and viewing play activities and picnics, and a shade structure for protection during the hottest hours of the day.  Custom features provide unique ways for patrons to engage with water and the outdoors.
