Slyde The Playground Hound will bring his “Play Smart – Play Safe” message to the Nephi, Utah Canyon View Ball Park Celebration.
The purpose of Slyde’s “Play Smart – Play Safe” visit is to teach children their role in playing safe and avoiding hazards on and around playground equipment.
“Slyde the Playground Hound is an animated character that children identify with and listen to. He presents a message of safe play that is entertaining and fun.
“We are bringing Slyde to the celebration to teach children that most playground injuries are unintentional, yet preventable by taking common sense steps for safe play,” said Nicole Stoddard of LuckyDog Recreation. LuckyDog is the supplier and playground contractor for the playground equipment at the park.
The newly renovated park boasts two exciting merry-go-rounds, two swing sets and a giant Dynamo Net Climber that reaches 18’ into the air. Each spinning merry-go-round is unique in its own right. The Dynamo Apollo® Climbing Spinner is a rope-based toy that can accommodate 35 laughing kids at one time. The solid base floor is perfect for those with disabilities. The Playcraft® GYRO-POD spinner is as wild and fun as it looks. This spinner provides dynamic spinning action for six to twelve children at a time.
“Swing sets are still a playground favorite. Swings are great fun, and help children develop physically and socially. From an early age children enjoy the movement and the delight of swinging to their heart’s content,” said Stoddard.
“Working with Philip Baker, Nephi City Parks Superintendent is inspiring. Mr. Baker has a remarkable passion for creating play space and recreational activities for his community. It shows in his choice of playground equipment…something for everyone. Thanks to Philip, Slyde will be at Canyon View to meet the children and teach playground safety,” added Stoddard.
Mark your calendars for family fun! Come and meet Slyde on Monday June 15, 2015 at 7:00 p.m. The Canyon View Ball Park is located at 100 N. 600 E. in Nephi, Utah.
The celebration will start with new ball field lighting donor appreciation and new playground and pavilion ribbon cutting. Activities include games, free hot dogs, root beer and chips. At dusk there will be a free movie in the park: “Million Dollar Arm.”
We would love to bring Slyde to celebrate the opening of your new LuckyDog Recreation playground.
