There are a number of practical reasons to opt for an indoor commercial playground versus an outdoor setting. In urban centers where outdoor space is a premium, creating meaningful, healthy fitness and social opportunities for children can be a challenge. For businesses, creating an indoor playground can be great way to expand on customer amenities in a way that the entire family can enjoy.

Not every climate is accommodating to year round outdoor play.  In cold northern climates, outdoor playgrounds have a limited season of use, and while not restricted during the winter season, cold weather conditions make it less desirable for families to enjoy them. In hot climates as well, the extreme temperatures can have the same impact on reducing the amount of playtime that children can utilize at a park or playground.

We at American Parks Company have helped a variety of businesses create the perfect indoor playground for a wide range of commercial and community applications including:

  1. The Hospitality IndustryWith the rising cost of international travel, new domestic hotels are increasing their value with a host of family-friendly activities for children of all ages.

    Restaurants that are popular with kids are taking up the all-inclusive approach to their dining establishments as well.

  3. Health Care FacilitiesBecause of all the physical and mental health benefits of commercial playground equipment, hospitals and therapy centers are taking advantage of indoor playgrounds. Not only do they help the young with rebounding from surgeries and injuries, but they make for great daycare playgrounds for children of staff and employees. On-site child care for health care professionals is another growing trend, and health care centers that offer such amenities tend to retain staff. Studies have also shown that sick or injured children that get to play and interact with other children, such as on an indoor playground, tend to be happier; and their elevated moods can reduce recovery times.
