Launching New Playground Equipment at Utah Charter School

The new Utah playground equipment for Salt Lake City charter school is all set to launch.

3…2…1… LAUNCHING 2 NEW PLAY AREAS at Wallace Stegner Charter School

The crew just finished up crafting TWO wonderful playground areas at the new Wallace Stegner Academy. LuckyDog Recreation works hard so kids can play hard on top-quality Utah commercial playground equipment.

Incorporating imaginative play as well as kinesthetic play goes hand in hand with the Wallace Stegner Academy approach of capitalizing on children’s natural curiosity. Easily accomplished throughout the Playcraft Systems “Club House” with various activity panels. The younger children are able to relay secrets through the “Talk Tube,” give their order at the “Store Panel” and ring the bell when the order is ready for liftoff.

New Commercial Playground Equipment for Sandy, Utah Park

Sandy, Utah park, Storm Mountain, got an exciting fresh new look for Spring, 2016. The Utah commercial playground equipment has a nature theme we have installed several times before (and LOVE). The natural colors are greens, brown and tan, perfect for blending in with the large mature trees already in the park.

LuckyDog was privileged to be selected in a round of proposals to supply and install new equipment at the Sandy, Utah park. The removal of the old playground equipment and the new installation of the NEW Playcraft commercial playground equipment now makes this a family destination park.

This cozy, quiet neighborhood park has many amenities including a jogging path, 2 tennis courts, a big outdoor pavilion with tables (set close to the new playground), and a large utility field for softball and other outdoor sports.

As always, we worked with Playcraft Systems™ to create a commercial playground that fits the space and packs in as much diversity as possible. The play equipment has something for every age, doesn’t segregate the 2-5 age set from the 5-12 age group, so the entire family has something to enjoy: rock climbing, rope climbing, slides, spinners and of course swings.

The LuckyDog crew finished the playground with wood chip surfacing, which was perfect for the rustic “in the the woods” playground theme.

As cities like Sandy, Utah grow in population, the need for play areas becomes more and more important. Parks not only create open space but provide a play space close to home that many families may not have otherwise. Utah Commercial Playgroud Equipment Plans by LuckDog Recreationa and Playcraft Systems

Utah Recreation and Parks Association (URPA) Trade Show

LuckyDog Recreation was fortunate to play a big part in the Utah Recreation and Parks Association (URPA) Trade Show.

Utah Playground Construction Specialist

We started the morning with CJ Stoddard, LuckyDog Playground Construction Specialist, presented valuable information on Playground Drainage to Utah park and playground professionals. CJ brought his years of playground construction experience to his presentation.

CJ showed a huge variety of drainage problems the construction team runs into when they construct a playground in an area that has been poorly designed or even designed with the playground as solution for draining other areas.

He stressed the importance of planning ahead in order to create a playground that is stable, lasts a long time and is safe for children. There are some simple solutions for good playground drainage, especially when playground areas are well planned.

CJ always works with the 5 P’s of Playground Construction in mind; Prior Planning Prevents Poor Performance. It is just good business, cost effective, creates a better product and a safe place for children to play.

Representing Utah Playground Equipment Companies

Utah Recreation and Parks Association - LuckyDog RecreationJordyn Stoddard and I put together the booth featuring Playcraft Playground Systems and Dynamo Playgrounds. Playcraft Playground Systems are the top of the line when it comes to playground design. Dynamo Playgrounds are unique rope based playgrounds that ignite playground magic.

Although the booth featured the Utah Commercial Playground Equipment companies that LuckyDog represents. Playground professionals showed a lot of interest in LuckyDog’s playground surfacing options. LuckyDog’s top of the line Sof’Tiles© DuraSAFE™ Plus Series, manufactured exclusively with recycled materials, drew the most interest.

Playcraft Systems Pirate Ship Wins Best in Show

Ahoy, me Hearties! Congratulations to Playcraft Systems for winning the coveted “Best in Show” prize at the 2014 National Recreation and Parks Association, NRPA, Congress and Trade Show.

The competition was fierce with almost 400 commercial playground equipment companies fighting for the prize.Playcraft Systems Pirate Ship Wins NPRA Best In Show

The Best In Show

“The coveted Best in Show prize, is awarded to the most engaging and innovative booths on the floor.  After all the votes were in, Playcraft Systems took home the first-place blue ribbon for an island booth thanks to their popular pirate ship playground complete with costumed staffers and pirate hat giveaways.

The NRPA annual conference’s show floor is the most extensive place for park and recreation professionals to learn about and experience new possibilities for their communities, and with 91.3 percent of this year’s surveyed attendees noting that they play a role in the purchasing process for their agency, this popular component of the conference is an invaluable resource for park and recreation departments looking to renew or expand their offerings.”

LuckyDog at the Show

Because LuckyDog Recreation is the Utah and Idaho sales and installation rep for Playcraft Systems commercial playgrounds we were eager to jump in and help at the NRPA Congress.

CJ Stoddard, LuckyDog Recreation Construction Manager and Jordyn Goebel, Distribution Manager, represented us at this year’s show.

“All the play equipment manufacturers bring their latest and greatest inventions for Congress participants and customers from all across the nation. Playcraft’s Pirate Ship Structure received the ‘Best in Show’ award, the most prestigious award of the entire event”, said Stoddard.

It was Jordyn Goebel’s first time at an NRPA trade show. “Attending the biggest trade show of the year was a great great learning experience for me. I had loads fun”, said Goebel. “We helped out at our amazing booth and met lots of customers.

We assisted in dissembling the Pirate Ship after the show was over. It was also really nice to see the booth set-up of other commercial playground equipment manufacturers we represent in Idaho and Utah such as Dog-On-It Parks and BPR by Bison.”
