Water play installations become even more attractive when they help to experience water in different ways. Children particularly enjoy damming water. On one hand, they are momentarily the 'Master' of the water when stemming the flood water, and on the other hand, they experience, through play, the water power when opening the lock of the dam.
It is most fun when natural materials such as mud, leaves and small sticks are used to dam the water. However, this is often not possible or desired. Therefore, complementary elements such as locks or flaps are required.
