  • USA SHADE prioritizes sun safety at splash pad destinations, offering shade structures that protect children and families from harmful UV rays.

  • Commercial shade structures reduce temperatures by up to 25 degrees Fahrenheit underneath, preventing overheating and heat-related ailments during the splash pad experience.

Splash pads are sometimes located in open areas where shade can be limited. At USA SHADE we know how important sun safety is, especially when children and families enjoy visiting splash pad destinations and spending time outside. We provide shade structures for splash pads that complement the design aesthetics of the outdoor space while providing essential shade and relief from the heat.


When families visit your outdoor aquatic play area, it is essential to provide ample shade for visitors for safety and comfort from the heat as they enjoy the splash pad experience. Give children and families the heat and sun protection they need when they visit any play area with commercial shade structures from USA SHADE. The most crucial functions of splash pad shade structures include:

  • Protecting children and splash pad visitors from the sun’s harmful UV rays.
  • Reducing temperatures underneath the shade up to 25 degrees Fahrenheit. This helps reduce the risk of overheating, heat stroke, and other heat-related ailments.
  • Offering parents and guardians a cool spot to relax and watch their children enjoy the water. When parents are comfortable, they are more likely to return and even stay longer.
  • Complementing the design specification of any aquatic playground.
  • Lending versatility to a water play area, including spaces with splash pads. While cantilever shade structures tend to be a great shade solution for seating areas in water parks, commercial shade sails like 3-Point and 4-Point Sails, overlapping or joined, can cover both the seating and splash pad areas for maximum shade coverage.
