If your organization is involved in building a new Playground or renovating an old one, you may be on the search for some new playground equipment. Designing and building a playground from scratch, or rebuilding an old site can be a detailed and overwhelming process if you are not properly prepared.
For this reason, it may be helpful to know what kind of Playground Equipment Slides, swings, and other options might be available to you. Here is a quick listing of just a few of those options:
- Complete Play Systems – A play system is a network of stairs, platforms, and slides that can vary in size, shape, and intricacy depending on your exact needs. Some may include only one or two slides of varying heights and sizes while larger options may include more slides or larger and higher slides. Jungle bars and climbing areas are also an option to have included in a play system.
- Individual Slides – Play systems are generally designed for multiple children that are a bit younger on the age scale. Some older children may prefer larger, higher slides that might need to be installed separately from a play system. Combining these two elements can help to provide a place for children of varying ages to enjoy together.
- Staple Items – A staple item is something that you just shouldn’t do without. Staple items for a playground will most likely include swing sets with swings that can accommodate children in a range of sizes and age as well as see-saws and scramblers.
- Benches – Children of a certain age should not be left at a playground unattended. Even if they are old enough to play without supervision, you may enjoy spending time with your children at the playground. Parents may like to have a nice relaxing spot to sit in the shade and keep an eye on their children while enjoying the sites and sounds around them.
These are just a small few of the great many options available to install in your new playground. A good way to determine exactly what you should include as far as playground Equipment Slides, swings, and other equipment can be to poll the local neighborhood to find out what people would most enjoy.
