Many water play exhibits deal with the water systems within our cities and on the land. This particular artwork brings a sense of where the water comes from. The meandering gutter creates a recirculating rain shower that can be played under. Children collect water in buckets and run with umbrellas amid the raindrops. This piece gives an understanding that our water starts from the sky, in the form of rain.


“I’m catching my breath and drying my feet after a morning in Waterplay. Kids are dancing under Rain Meander like they are Gene Kelly – truly great.”
