Oleson Park Spray Ground

Spray Grounds
  • Located in Fort Dodge, Iowa
  • 2009 Dream Design Award

The City of Fort Dodge previously operated a failing pool at Oleson Park.  As an element of a park master plan, the City replaced the pool with a low maintenance and non-staffed spray ground, while utilizing the existing filter building to control costs.  The design of the new spray ground featured a circular follow-the-path design with spray features on either side of the path.  The showcase piece of the spray ground is a large interactive water feature with controllable shooting water and waterfalls.
