Park Misting Systems Coachella Valley

Recently a good friend asked our Koolfog Customer Service Team what Coachella Valley public parks have park misting systems to keep kids and critters cool.  Our team not only admires great work found amongst our misting industry community, we provide new misting system installation, repair and service to existing misters, take care of fogscapes across our local desert cities. So we thought we’d share a few of our favorite finds.

 

Freedom Park, Palm Desert

Freedom Park offers 26 acres of outdoor fun.  Designed with a ode to American History, this expansive park welcomes its visitors with a ton of amenities to indulge in sports activities, picnicking, and play.  Like baseball? Softball? Soccer? or football? The fields await. Enjoy a game on the court? Try basketball, pickleball or volleyball.  Take a walk on the path that winds around the park or take advantage of some of the areas skate features and don’t forget to pack a basket of snacks to share under the shaded picnic shelters. There truly is something for everyone…including our furry family friends.   Freedom Park has a very popular dog park boasting a green grassy area with trees to give your dog an amazing outdoor experience.  It’s been reported that there are even “baggies, scoops, balls, water bowls, and rinsing station” to pamper your pets. Of course, we are partial to the playground area at Freedom Park.  There are kids jungle gyms, climbers, slides, swings and so much more to explore! In the middle of the park there is a very cool immersive play structure in the form of a ship.  Children can use their imagination to champion the large vessel on a sea of calm waves with a lovely plume of mist gently moving through the air.   The fog fountain is comprised of a set of misting pads that are set into the ground at the front of the ship to create a sense of movement while providing a real visual and tactile experience.

 

Fountain of Life, Cathedral City

As you leave Palm Springs via Highway 111, you can’t help but know you’ve arrived at the heart of Cathedral City when you spot the spectacular “Fountain of Life”.  While not, technically, a park misting system, this beautiful piece of public art definitely gives off a mist sensation and has become a wonderful gathering place to cool off and chill. Inspired by the nature and history of the desert the large stone and mosaic fountain incorporates symbols of the areas birth and growth while surrounded by sculptures of creatures found in the Coachella Valley such as turtles, fish, wildflowers, and big horn sheep.  The artwork is colorful and tells a vibrant story of Cathedral City’s roots.  Families can been seen hanging out under the waterfalls, climbing amidst the multi-level tiers or playing in the water sprays that form lovely mist clouds around the soft surface.  According to www.cathedralcity.gov, the The “Fountain of Life” ‘s “underground tank contains two 5.5 h.p. pumps with a capacity of 450 g.p.m. The pumps process the water through a manifold for distribution among nozzles for 32 separate fountain features. Each nozzle is adjusted for quantity and pressure, which affect the height of the sprays.”  The fountain has become the centerpiece for area civic activities, shopping, and dining as well as a local  fan favorite for beating the heat.

 

Civic Center Park, Palm Desert

 Perhaps one of the most beloved parks in the Coachella Valley, Civic Center Park, Palm Desert is a picturesque destination to celebrate nature as well as exercise the body and soul.  The 70 acre park is one of the largest in the area with duck filled ponds, artfully arranged walking paths, public art pieces for reflection and contemplation, and a rose garden to breathe in the fragrance of floral beauty.  Large palm trees dot the landscape and surround a large grassy knoll with a huge amphitheatre that hosts concerts and special events.  In addition to the many sports fields and courts, the park is home to Palm Desert Parks and Recreation facilities Community Center, Aquatic Center, and YMCA.  The adjacent Skate Park and Dog Park are situated across from the College of the Desert and accessible to the public.  The Dog Park features a grass area with two seating ramadas for dog owners to relax and take shade.   The ramadas have park misting systems and make for a great respite from the heat.  Misting systems can also be found on the Picnic Pavilions located near the children’s playgrounds.   We think Civic Center Park in Palm Desert is a special place to put on your “must visit” list.
