Landgoed De Berenkuil
Located on a 55-hectare nature reserve, Landgoed De Berenkuil is a 5-star family-friendly children’s campsite featuring 25 playgrounds, a heated outdoor swimming pool, paddling lake, indoor playground and an extensive recreational program, named Beary Fun, aimed at children aged 0 to 12 years old.

Design Challenge
Looking to turn their recreational facility into a preferred destination for young holiday goers and further support their popular Beary Fun kid’s program, the owners of Landgoed De Berenkuil, set forth to add a water play area to their existing aquatic amenities. The goal was two-fold in that the play space would need to be safe and accessible for all ages and abilities as well as create memorable guest experiences, encouraging repeat business.

In collaboration with our expert aquatic play team at Watergames & More B.V., a unique nature-inspired splash pad was achieved using products from the Grasslands Collection in conjunction with an assortment of must-have, classic features.
Loaded with interactive play elements, this zero-depth splash pad comes to life with one push of the Sprout activator, inviting everyone to play! A Sneaky Spin Soaker 2 dumps unpredictable splashes from its bell-shaped buckets as two interactive Critter cannons spark a friendly water game. Curious Snake and Frog ground sprays slither and hop across the pad and two giant wildflowers, the Blue Bottle and Aneth Bloom immerse waterplayers in the joys of nature!
For more gentle splashes, a toddler-friendly play area of Surf Stones, Ant Ground Sprays, Puddles and a meandering Discovery Stream, home to a Stout Mouse, Duck Wheel and Sea Grass, invites hands-on exploration and discovery.
Situated off to the side of the splash pad, a uniquely shaped wading pool with a centrally-located castle designed for climbing completes the play space.

An undeniable asset to the campsite and its kid's program, the new splash pad at Landgoed De Berenkuil is a paradise of play and relaxation for parents and children of all ages and abilities that will be enjoyed for many years to come.
