Designing an outdoor play area for children is both science and art. What would make this particular playground really stand out? Should we include any climbing elements? Where should the swing sets be placed so they’re spaced out to allow for kids to swing, but close enough to be part of the part? How can we ensure we’re building inclusive playgrounds that can be enjoyed by all?

There’s a lot to take into account, and we’ve considered all things having to do with a new playground. The experienced professionals of General Recreation Inc. understand very well that each playground set gracing the park must be as functional as it is attractive, so that it keeps kids safe and amused at the same time.
