The kids at Jewett Park Preschool in Deerfield, Illinois are jumping with joy on their brand new playground! We recently finished replacing all of their old play equipment with some of our most exciting new components, including an orchestra of outdoor musical instruments from our Concerto line of Little Tikes Commercial products. Also in the play space is our unique Matrix net structure, in addition to more realistic Nu-Edge climbers like the Fun Rock! The new playground is fully ADA compliant, which makes sure that every preschooler can reach every play piece! Even in the snow, children were enjoying every second of their first opportunity to explore their new Little Tikes Commercial playground!
Fundraising continues for a brand new inclusive playground in Goshen, Indiana! Located at Hay Park off of State Road 119, “Kerry’s Kids Playground” will bring children of all abilities from the surrounding community together to play.
Mayor Jeremy Stutsman was inspired by a letter from a local Goshen High School student who wanted the needs of ALL members in the community to be heard. An inclusive playground does not just allow access for wheel-chair bound individuals, but accommodates a wide variety of abilities to ensure no child is excluded. Parents and family will also have the opportunity to participate in the play activities with their children as well. Giving the entire community a safe and accessible place to play will provide years of smiles and stories.
The best part is we are already well on our way to meeting our $50,000 fundraising goal on Patronicity!! If our goal is met by December 11th, the Indiana Housing and Community Development Authority has pledged to match the $50,000 with a grant! Parkreation is humbled and honored to be a part of such an important mission to bring fun to everyone. Find out how you can help make “Kerry’s Kids Playground” a reality by visiting the project’s Patronicity page today!
Today is the official ribbon cutting for our new universal playground at Oak Brook’s Sandlot! Located at 1300 Forest Gate Rd., the playground brings children of all abilities and ages together to play. The park has a baseball theme, decked out with baseball toppers decorating the posts of the Little Tikes Commercial Nu-Edge play structure, along with a baseball diamond design in the Pro-Techs rubber surfacing. This playground is sure to make all kids feel like they hit a home-run!
WGN did a featured segment about the universal playground that you can view here.
Parkreation was happy to team up with the Gurnee Park District and Gurnee School District 56 to open a brand new playground at River Trail School! Through collaboration, the park district and school district were able to share the budget and give back to the kids of the community with a larger playground. The kids watched the playground being installed from the beginning, and could not wait to start playing on it at the ribbon-cutting ceremony!
