LuckyDog Recreation was awarded the playground construction job at Wellington Elementary in Wellington, Utah. To make sure the proposed equipment would best meet the needs of students in 2nd grade to 5th grade, Principal, Seth Allred and the PTA playground committee met with LuckyDog representative, Nicole Stoddard to finalize plans.
Together they selected playground equipment from PlayCraft Systems® featuring the new-fangled hybrid play system called the Revolution™. This unique system combines traditional play equipment, slippery slides and rock climbers with new European flair equipment that combines ropes, climbers, and over-head challenges. The new European flair play equipment keeps kids challenged and interested. Traditional play equipment keeps them on the go.
The playground also sports a PlayCraft original, the Boogie Board, a PlayCraft and LuckyDog favorite. The Boogie Board is like a moving floor that requires the balance and skill of riding a skateboard.
To complete the site the playground construction included the ever popular independent overhead spinning toy known as the PlayCraft Neutron Spinner. Its spinning action requires upper-body strength and is reminiscent of the old maypoles from yesteryear, “but a whole lot safer,” said representative Nicole Stoddard.
Deon Kone, Facility Manager and project coordinator for Carbon County School District, worked with LuckyDog to schedule playground installation during off-hours and weekends so big equipment like excavators and concrete trucks did not interfere during school hours. Once completed, students, the PTA group and the school district were pleased with the results.
CJ Stoddard, Playground Construction Manager for LuckyDog said, “As far as a turn-key playground project goes, this job was sweet. Principal Allred was great to work with. The kids will get many years of fun. This is a well designed play area.”
The students of Wellington Elementary are known as the Wellington Warriors. Their motto is “United in Safety, Literacy and Learning, through Respect, Responsibility and Integrity.”
The new playground may not teach literacy, but LuckyDog’s attention to detail and the IPEMA certified playground equipment from PlayCraft Systems® ensures that the students of Wellington Elementary will be playing safe.
