A New Generation of Playgrounds Engaging Kids In Free Play

Dynamo rotating climbers make it easier than ever to create playgrounds that challenge kids physically and socially by engaging them in free play.

The rewards of working in the playground industry are just plain fun!

The people we work with are passionate about bringing the power of play to kids, schools and communities. Plus, we get the great satisfaction of seeing kids and their families actually experiencing joyful play.

There is something magical in taking down the construction safety nets and opening the playground up to the kids. Their imaginations are as wild and contagious as their laughter.

Modern playground equipment has evolved from the standard slippery slide and jungle gym to electronic play boards, rope climbers, rotating climbers, rock climbing walls, spinners and challenge courses.

New playgrounds are designed to promote exercise, good heath, motion, social activity, spark imaginations and engage kids in free play.

In some of my favorite playground designs we were able to include climbing playground equipment by Dynamo Playgrounds, a leader in the playground industry. Rope climbing playgrounds not only encourage free play, they encourage self-imposed goal attainment.

Rob Lockhart, Dynamo Playgrounds, is the perfect example of someone who is passionate about play. He definitely brings with him a better play experience…

“The motives for good activity choices in free play are many, starting with the need for children to be physically active to build fit and strong bodies. These incentives extend with the benefits of active play in promoting better academic success, continue in the indirect learning opportunities, and include the enhancement of essential life skills such as decision making and self-confidence.”  Rob Lockhart, Dynamo Playgrounds – Read More

Yes, it can be a challenge to create playgrounds that are appealing to kids of all ages, playgrounds that are engaging enough to draw them out doors, playgrounds that engage kids in free play.  That is where we have had huge successes with Dynamo:

“We live on Stierman Way, near Orval Krasen Park. Our boys have grown up playing there since we moved into the neighborhood 9 years ago. I wanted to thank you for the new playground equipment. First, our boys love it. Second, it has brought the kids “out of the woodwork” from around our neighborhood.”

Tonight there were more kids than I’ve ever seen enjoying the new spinning cone [Apollo Rotating Climber], playing kickball, swinging, and generally recreating at “our” park. We now hear the joyful sound of kids playing with ours in our neighborhood. This is something I’ve waited 9 years for.   Thank you.”

AND

“The Apollo Rotating Climber has been a great addition to the playground. Kids run to it first and it seems like they can’t get enough of it.”    J. Christensen, Bothwell, Utah

A big thank you to all the playground professionals who have joined us in “The Pursuit of Play”.

Apollo Rotating Climber Brings New Fun to Bothwell, Utah Park

Town of Bothwell Utah The community playground in Bothwell, Utah keeps growing with new playground equipment. In fact, the park now boasts a new commercial playground rotating climber, a 21st century merry-go-round by Dynamo Playgrounds.

The children of the small community of Bothwell, Utah aren’t the only ones enjoying the PlayCraft Playground Equipment LuckyDog installed last summer in the community park. Families for miles around are getting in on the fun play action.

This summer, 2014, playground fun grew even bigger and better as phase two of the park went into production, and LuckyDog Recreation installed new rope climber commercial playground equipment.

Imagine a merry-go-round! You know, the ones from yester-year.

Now imagine that merry-go-round just got about 12’ taller and 10’ bigger around at the base. What? A spinning toy that is 12 feet tall? Yep! Now add to it the fact that children and their grown-up counter-parts that are kids at heart can climb, spin and giggle all at the same time.

This new spinning game addition, known as the Apollo Rotating Climber, is manufactured by Dynamo Playgrounds and is distributed and installed by LuckyDog Recreation.

Gary Feldman, volunteer playground project coordinator, says they have run out of room but will be adding seating and tables for picnicking very soon.

When asked how the community liked the new addition to the playground, volunteer Jay Christensen, the park construction coordinator said,
The Apollo has been a great addition to the playground. Kids run to it first and it seems like they can’t get enough of it.”

We second that emotion!

In fact, you should see what happened when the LuckyDog construction team stopped by to inspect the Apollo Spinner (or so they say. . . maybe they just wanted to go for a spin).

Notice the multicolored rope…very fun.

So what are you waiting for? Grab a child or two and head on over to the Bothwell, Utah Community Park.

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”.
