Swan Valley Idaho Playground Equipment & Safety Surfacing

Cities and Towns are keenly aware of the benefits of having a playground with safety surfacing as a key feature for residents and tourists and the town of Swan Valley, Idaho is no exception.

Located in the Eastern part of Bonneville County, Swan Valley is nestled between the Caribou Mountains to the South and the Targhee National Forest to the North. Close to Western Wyoming tourist destinations, Jackson Hole and Grand Teton National Park, Swan Valley is a true mountain town boasting of lots to see and do. Now the town can add “swinging” to the list of town amenities.

Janice Duncan, major of Swan Valley was anxious to get the park updates started. Even though their budget was not yet as large as their “dream” playground, Janice was undeterred by this small detail and contacted LuckyDog Recreation who helped them devise a plan for “phasing” the playground project over a couple of years.

Installed in September 2014 was the swing-set, borders, and a rubberized surfacing mulch material that is loose-fill material reclaimed from used tires. Under the two belt seat swings are wear-mats installed to keep the depth of the safety surfacing full and level even when younger swingers use their feet to kick themselves to the highest heights while swinging.

The community was intimately involved in the project and donated the excavation of the site for phase 1. The installation crew from LuckyDog Recreation visited with Mayor Duncan, Steve and Anna, the maintenance personnel for the City Park about site considerations for the upcoming Phase 2. Fundraising for next year’s purchase and installation are already well underway. “It looks just great”! said Mayor Duncan. “We so much appreciate working with you . . . and there will be more to come next Spring.”

Congratulations to the citizens of Swan Valley and to all the folks passing by who will stop in Swan Valley for all the fun outdoor recreation goodies that now includes City Park swings with safety surfacing.
