GILROY In a drought-stricken state, an oasis of water that has appeared in Gilroy is not a mirage.

Water Oasis, a new water play area at Gilroy Gardens, opened Saturday, with the goal of educating children on the importance of conserving water.

The nonprofit theme park showcased the area during a preview event Thursday.

The half-acre Water Oasis, which is geared for families with children ages 8 and under, features three elements. Water Journey is a first-of-its-kind attraction where visitors can redirect water flow through a watershed. A splash pad with a flower garden layout has various components that spray water on users from plant-themed objects shaped like bamboo, sunflowers, palm trees and others. In addition, a lagoon, one-and-a-half feet deep, features two slides.
