We believe that every community should have a local playground that is reflective of their people. There is nothing better than bringing the community together to achieve a common goal. The passion, enthusiasm, and pure joy we get to see on people’s faces, from elected officials to business owners, parents, and neighbours, community builds are a wonderful experience and memory for everyone involved.
It is an all-hands-on-deck project from start to finish and is an amazing way to cultivate stronger bonds within your community by striving towards one common goal; creating an inclusive space to connect, play, and learn.

Imagine looking back at a community project and thinking "I'm so happy I got to be a part of that!” Everytime you walk by, see a photo, or hear about your playground in the news, you can feel a sense of accomplishment knowing you got to be a part of something so special.

Design a Space That is Unique to Your Community

Every community has something that is important to them, and incorporating that in your playground design makes the project so much more personal. Whatever the case may be, there are many ways to bring those special elements to your design.

What do you need to consider in order to do a community build?

Whether you are completely rebuilding from the ground up, or are installing a new playground at your current community space, location is key to get started on the logistics of planning.

Bring any sketches, inspiration boards, or colour palettes to our team so they can incorporate your personal touches into the site. Be sure to think of inclusive elements like wheelchair access to ensure your space can accommodate everyone.

What will need to be done in order to get it ready for a new playground? Any landscaping needed? What about demolition of old equipment or structures? These are important things to remember before the fun can begin!

There is a whole word of unique playground equipment that can truly suit anyone’s needs! From climbing structures to ziplines, our team can bring your community’s wildest playground dreams come true. Be sure to check out some of our playground designs and playground structures to start getting inspired.

It is important to remember who your space will be used by. There are many innovative ways to include playground equipment that is suitable for different age ranges. A great way to do this is by incorporating a variety of structures, some that suit toddlers, and others that are perfect for older kids.

There are a variety of different features you can add to your play space to make it usable and enjoyable for everyone. From Outdoor Fitness Equipment to Outdoor Musical Instruments, your space can be more than just a place to play, but a place to learn and grow.

Creating an inclusive space is extremely important when designing a community run playground. Everyone should be able to experience the amazing project you have created together, and there are many ways our team can help ensure your design meets multiple needs.
