Welcome our family business Watergames & More
We are Watergames & More, a firm specialised in facilities for playing on, around, with and in water. We construct water attractions such as spray parks, waterslides & more and total water play experiences, in which we combine all kinds of (themed) water attractions. Attention and service are of paramount importance to us. If required, we can relieve you of any worries throughout each stage of the process, from design to realisation and maintenance.
Founded by Paul van den Berg in 2008, our family business endeavours to enable as many people as possible to enjoy water in a carefree, safe and playful manner. Based on the experience he had gained in the field of education and the playground equipment industry, Paul set out to develop water play concepts based on pedagogical, physical and social aspects.
As orders rapidly increased both in number and scope, his sons, Odmar and Karsten van den Berg, became more and more involved in the business. We have since established a team of experts with extensive knowledge and skills in various fields. Get acquainted with our team and our steady partners below
And we are still expanding! If you feel you could complement our team, please apply for one of our job vacancies.
