Irvine Church Playground Installation Project Completed by Pacific Play Systems, Inc.
Leading Southern California commercial playground company, Pacific Play Systems, Inc., has just unveiled its latest Irvine church playground project at Harvest Orange County Church. Located in Irvine, CA, Harvest Orange County is one of two Harvest Church locations with the second location in Riverside, CA. Earlier this year at Harvest’s Riverside location, Pacific Play furnished and installed a new Playcraft commercial playground above new poured-in-place rubberized surfacing. And now, just last week Pacific Play put the final touches on the new playground project at Harvest’s Irvine location. For the project, Pacific Play renovated Harvest Orange County by furnishing and installing a brand new Playcraft commercial playground, safety surfacing, and additional playground products.
Harvest’s newest playground was custom designed by Pacific Play and the playground’s manufacturer, west coast’s Playcraft Systems. Pacific Play designer and project manager, Alex Bemanian, explained his approach in helping to create Harvest’s newest design: “As for each of our projects, the goal in designing Harvest’s playground was to create the most value-packed and innovative design possible, while of course taking into consideration the client’s unique needs such as budget, available space, age range of children, etc.” Bemanian added, “Harvest’s new playground was designed to fit within the church’s linear play space, and to be accessible for children within the five to twelve age group. Designing for the older children allowed for the inclusion of a variety of challenging components not usually available for the younger set of children ages two to five.” Some of these challenging components for the older group include an overhead Loop Traverse connecting two decks, a five-foot-high all-metal Snake Climber, a five-foot-high Twister Slide, and a six-foot-high Spiral Slide. Additionally, Harvest’s new playground includes a swaying Suspension Bridge, a variety of activity panels, and much more!
In terms of the color scheme, Harvest’s newest playground is predominantly nature-inspired with brown decks and rooftops and a forest green Twister Slide and panels. These colors are complemented with bright orange climbers and vibrant lime green slides giving the playground a striking visual appeal. The pyramid-style rooftops that artfully and symmetrically sit atop of each end of the playground add further to the playground’s appeal.
In addition to furnishing and providing full installation for the new Irvine church playground project, Pacific Play also provided and installed sixty-five cubic yards of engineered wood fibers safety surfacing, one of the safest and most popular playground surfaces available. Pacific Play also furnished new plastic border timbers all around the play area to retain the wood fibers, in addition to a new ADA ramp to provide wheelchair access into the play area. With the project now complete, Harvest Orange County now boasts a great play space for kids to socialize, stay active, and have fun!
