The new Farm Themed Playground Structure showing the new checkerboard pattern PIP surfacing
Pacific Play Systems, Inc. is excited to announce the completion of their new “Groves” project located in the City of Redlands. Pacific Play Systems, Inc. is a leader in design and installation of commercial playground equipment in southern California. We offer our customers a design build solution which enables clients to plan their entire project through our company, trimming costs and eliminating the hassle of dealing with multiple vendors and contractors. We respect our clients’ values and needs and, as such, our designers here at Pacific Play proposed an imaginative and creative “Farm” themed playground design for The Groves.
The project was appropriately designed to offer lots of opportunities for learning and cooperative play for children of ages 5-12. The state-of-the-art playground equipment, manufactured locally by Playcraft Systems, includes three different slides including the Dual Express Slide, Spiral Slide and Silo Tube Slide with Skylights, along with ample climbing opportunities via the Inclined Grip Wall, Double Deep Rung Arch Climber, Terrace Climber, Stacked Loop Climber and various activity panels to encourage imaginative play. Aside from the new 5-12 playground structure, the scope of work for this project also included the installation of a Poured-in-Place safety surfacing and its sub-base, as well as a bike-rack.
While designing this custom playground, our designers at Pacific Play, made sure that the playground design presented different levels of challenge to the kids. A few important things our designers always keep in mind while designing a new playground:
“Is the playground fun?” Children want to do fun things and want to be in interesting places. So, creating a theme designed playground not only creates a great space for the children to play but encourages them to be imaginative while helping them develop mentally, physically and emotionally.
“Is it safe?” Safety is our most important concern. We want to make sure kids are safe in the playground while playing at all times. Keeping this in mind, Pacific Play installed Poured-in-Place EPDM 50/50 green/black and tan/black checkerboard pattern surfacing, which provides the play area not only a safe surface to play on but gives the playground an exhilarating and fun look! Approximately 1700 SF of the rubberized surfacing was provided to achieve this unique appearance for the play area.
“Is it ADA accessible?” Our goal at Pacific Play is to make sure that children with disabilities can access the play area and experience an equal level of fun and excitement that other children enjoy.
