New PlayCraft Playground System For Salt Lake Bees at Smith Stadium

Salt Lake Bees fans now have a playground for kids to have fun! This is the perfect addition to Smith Stadium family fun.

LuckyDog Recreation began consulting with the Salt Lake Bee’s Manager Bryan Kinneberg late last fall (2014) with a target goal to have the project complete by Memorial Day 2015.

We made our goal to have the project 100% complete for game day Memorial Weekend. Bryan was great to work with and on a custom structure like the Bee’s playground, there is a lot of communication between parties.

LuckyDog’s Office Manager, Lynette Turner, was key to making sure the custom panels were exactly what the Bee’s imagined that could be. You can see from the ‘concept’ drawings to the ‘completed’ panels PlayCraft and LuckyDog did what we set out to do.

The design includes a fun clubhouse for Bees’ fans of all ages, shapes and sizes; from tiny tots, to big brothers and sisters. For even more play value we included decorative custom “Panel Pals™.” The panels are unique to PlayCaft Systems. Something fun for the whole family.

“I just wanted to say thank you for all of your hard work and patience with us, and for supplying such a beautiful product! It will be quite the hit once we finalize the rest of the project.

“All three of you were exemplary models of professionalism and a true joy to work with. I am drafting a letter of recommendation and will send it to you shortly.”  Salt Lake Bee’s Manager, Bryan Kinneberg

LuckyDog Recreation is proud to be a part of the overall make-eover to the Bees’ Smith Stadium. The PlayCraft playground equipment designed especially for the Bees has a lasting impression; from just about anywhere in the stadium you can see the playground’s logo baseball cap.

Summit Street Park Gets Playcraft and Dynamo Playground Equipment

The setting of Summit Street Park is situated where the old high school used to be at the corner of 10th Street and Summit Street in beautiful Evanston, Wyoming. The playground sits nestled under the mature trees that have been carefully preserved to survive demolition and new construction.

The PlayCraft playground sytem and independent equipment; Large Boulder Stack, Stand-up Spinner, Spinner Bowl and Neutron Spinner are balanced by the Dynamo rock called the White-Horn Mountain. The structure features duo racing slides, the extremely popular Gyro-Spinner, Conifer Climber, and more.

From LuckyDog Construction Manager, CJ Stoddard:  “I liked the flow-motion on this job. From start to finish everything was perfect. The play equipment arrived on time.

The rock which came on a different carrier was on time too. Rarely do we have a missing part with PlayCraft Systems – so of course all the parts were there. The entire job was fluid. It’s a beautiful playground”.

From LuckyDog Service Manager, Nicole Stoddard: “It’s always rewarding to hear that the project finishes as well as it begins. The playground purchase is only half the job. Because we offer the great equipment and provide our own quality installation service, we can make and deliver on promises to our customers”.

The Summit Street Park Playground project was finished on schedule as promised and in time for an important Back-to-School night picnic.

Purchasing Agent and Facilities Director for Uinta County School District, Dan Selleroli said, “The crew was amazing. The minute they left the playground it was covered with kids”.

Taylorsville, Utah Community Comes Together for Azure Meadows Park Update

It is amazing what a few people can do to bring a community together. Residents in Taylorsville and city officials got together to update Azure Meadows Park.

After a year of planning and lots of neighborhood volunteers the park opened on July 29th. Our very own Slyde the Playground Hound was there for the grand opening. He shared playground safety tips. The kids went wild for Slyde.

Over that two-day period, new playground equipment was installed and a wood chip base spread over the area. Previously, cement footings were poured, and eventually a large pavilion and walking trail will be constructed in the park. As resident Danny James said, it made him proud of both his neighbors and his city.

“I felt the efforts of the city to get this playground and park rebuilt and refurbished were wonderful,” he said. “They really stepped up and had so much involvement to get this done. The park had been vandalized many times over the years—the wood was chipped and splintered, slides had been removed. Now, the playground itself has brand new, safe, clean equipment, and the kids love it.”

Neighborhood Services Coordinator Rhetta McIff said the playground has some great new equipment, including a gyro spinner, swoop ladder, monkey bars, a club house and a pod spinner.

“It also has two huge slides, taller and longer than anything we’ve had before,” she said. The slides, which are 8 feet tall, are side-by-side and curved, allowing for “some great races between friends,” she said.

We love participating in projects like this! We installed the playground equipment and the park shelter. Kudos to those the people of Taylorsville, Utah that made this park a reality.

New Play Equipment At Bud Bailey Apartments

Utah Playground Surfacing at Bud Baily Apartments - LuckyDog Recreation

LuckyDog Recreation, PlayCraft Playground equipment and FlexGround Playground Safety surfacing make a sweet combination of success on this project at Bud Bailey Apartments, Salt Lake City, Utah.

The project essentially started in Fall of 2012 when Nicole and CJ of LuckyDog Recreation met with Project Manager for Zwick Construction, Mike Wood to visualize what they wanted in this unusually shaped play area. Because the playground is going to be right next to a splash pad planned in the later phase of the project, pour-in-place (PIP) surfacing was the logical solution and preferable to having loose-fill material that would migrate from the play area into the splash pad area where it would clog drains and appear unsightly.

After the surfacing decision was final, Zwick Construction presented several design options to the owner, Salt Lake City Housing Authority, for approval. It didn’t take long to come up with a small structure with two independent items, the Spin-Max-Go-Round and a 4-way Teeter-Totter. The hopscotch, which is made entirely of PIP was added later and really gives the area added play value.

The PIP is a mix of black and terra cotta. The color scheme for the playground is orange, green and tan to match the surrounding buildings. This playground is now open and in use by the children of Bud Bailey Apartments in Salt Lake City Utah. A successful finish, quality people to work with and fun for all.
