Webster’s definition of design is “to devise for a specific function or end”. Grounds For Play has built our nearly 3 decades of history on that purpose. We specialize in playground design unlike any other, creating an “environment” for children rather than just a recreational area.
A playground can hardly be chosen out of a catalog unless you’re willing to submit to the notion that children are simply rubber stamps. Choosing a playground this way means answering a few questions a particular way and no matter where you are in the country your best playground is A, B or C. If you are not willing to support this notion, then playgrounds (environments) must be designed for a specific function. This specific function can vary across the street let alone across the country based on your vision, mission, children, staff, etc. At Grounds For Play, our playground design process takes this all into account.
We view the design process as a collaborative effort between experts in play and playground design and the end users who see the playground as an extension of the curriculum or facility. Clients of Grounds For Play can expect a full site planning approach that is intended to provide a vision for the whole playground -- not just the equipment. This vision can guide and inspire your playground project team through the process of creating a playground design that engage all of the children and in more ways than just active play. Play elements that provide outlets for dramatic play, construction play, music, art and games with rules will ensure that every child has a place to pursue their interests each day.
At Grounds For Play we’re dedicated to creating "whole" environments for the "whole" child. Our playground design will help you create a fun learning environment no matter what the age group. CLICK HERE to launch your vision.
