Action Packed, Modern Design, Small Footprint and Thoughtful Use of Materials Make Smart Play: Cube an Easy Choice

smartplaycube5_240 Plenty of activities means plenty of fun on Smart Play: Cube 2-5! While this playstructure welcomes 2- to 5-year-olds for play, we recognize that there are huge developmental differences between 2-year-olds and 5-year-olds.

Cut-outs from the panels are used to create activity components found elsewhere within the playstructure.
Designing your own Smart Play: Cube 2-5 is quick and easy. With one model and one price, all you have to do is choose your colors. And we made that choice easy with our recommended color palettes.

LSICanyonTheDenRock240 There are four rocks, each of which attaches to posts in a specific configuration around the new Canyon Deck. The rocks, with play elements on both the outside and inside, can also be attached as individual pieces around standard decks creating true-to-life rock-climbing experience.

THE ASCENT™ ROCK Though the smallest of the collection, the Ascent Rock provides a challenging vertical climb with plenty of built-in hand- and foot-holds.

GeoNetrix-Main-View_640 GeoNetrix, for children ages 5-12, is a dimensional playstructure system inspired by net climbing and ropes courses. Working within the popular PlayBooster system, GeoNetrix adds a new dimension to any playground. You can create a circuit design utilizing dymanic nets and modern towers all connetced with creative and fun new climbing and bridging events. The matrixed climbing experience encourages kids to find new ways to traverse the structure, with an unlimited number of possible unique routes. These great new play components can be combined with the PlayBooster components to provide all the desired activities you could imagine in a playstructure.

Dynamic nets. Contemporary towers. Challenging circuit play. That’s what kids get when they play on Landscape Structures’ newest playground creation. GeoNetrix mixes art and play to create a creative dimensional play experience for children ages 5 to 12. Debuting at the 2013 ASLA Annual Meeting & Expo in Boston, GeoNetrix was voted “Best Visual Appeal.”

GeoNetrix-Reverse-View_640 Landscape Structures designers’ goal when conceptualizing GeoNetrix was to create an iconic playstructure using unique materials. It doesn’t look like a traditional playground. The lines and angles are cohesive, with one arc feeding into another arc creating a continuous flow of play. Colored translucent polycarbonate roofs cast vibrant color to the ground. Non-rigid components and compact footprint provide a light design that can be modified to fit into any overall park plan.

In addition, GeoNetrix offers kids a “choose your own adventure” experience. At first kids will stay low to the ground on more secure cables, and when they’ve mastered those, there is opportunity to graduate to new challenges by climbing higher and engaging new muscles. This net phenomenon stretches kids’ imaginations, while providing a total body workout.

Add a new dimension to your playground with GeoNetrix where dynamic nets connect to contemporary towers, creating a circuit of big-time fun.
