How to Build a Quality Church Playground
In addition to being a place of worship, a church is an important focal point for communities to learn and grow together. It is where families can connect to resources and activities, build quality friendships, and contribute to a meaningful quality of life for their families.
Recreation is an important part of building a healthy lifestyle with fitness and fun. Enrich your recreational and social community events with quality church playground equipment and park accessories.
Choosing the Right Playground Equipment for Church Daycare Facilities
Offering a bible school program, preschool, or daycare facility welcomes young families to your community by making your church accessible and engaging for small children. Congregations contain children of all age groups, physical abilities, and development levels. It is important to consider which end user you intend to enjoy the playground equipment.
Building an indoor toddler friendly play area is as easy with our commercial play structures designed for children aged 0-5 years. We also offer a large selection of outdoor commercial playground equipment for ages 2-5 years, 5-12 years, and structures designed for both age groups together. Our play structures offer activity panels, independent play events, and group play activities designed to engage and enrich young imaginations. All of the American Parks Company playgrounds are ADA accessible for special needs children, but if you are buying commercial swing sets, be sure to ask about our adaptive swing seats intended for children with mobility needs.
Youth Groups and Sports Fitness and Recreation
Some of the best learning for children and young adults takes place on an athletic field. It creates the opportunity for children to learn valuable skills including leadership, planning, and teamwork. Participation in organized community sports gives youths the opportunity to aspire and excel toward excellence while building confidence and social skills.
If you have the space, we have the commercial grade athletic equipment you need to build a basketball court, or a baseball, soccer, or football field. We offer a complete collection of ADA accessible bleachers and durable outdoor structures to easily accommodate organized sports. We also offer shade structures to help keep parents, teachers and fans cool in hot weather.
Creating Church Picnic Areas
If your Church has a calendar full of engaging events for your community, we have the outdoor seating and shelter facilities to create your perfect picnic space. Church pot-lucks, barbecues, and picnics are perfect ways to spice up services, social gatherings, or fundraising events. We can help you build a commercial grade steel shelter worthy of a congregation of any size. We also offer fabric shade structures in a variety of shapes and sizes to meet your needs. We can customize style, color, and other features to your specifications; and we also have the tables, benches, and trash receptacles to complete the package, with all the necessities you’ll need to host successful and fun events.
Addressing Safety Considerations
It is important to plan for prevention when it comes to athletic or playground injuries. Whether you are upgrading your current equipment or installing a new playground or athletic field, it is important to understand the safety ratings and recommended use for indoor or outdoor recreation products. Visit our safety section to learn more about the Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) and the International Play Equipment Manufacturers Association (IPEMA). Ensuring proper use of the playground equipment involves having proper signage, monitoring activity during play, and performing routine inspection and maintenance as required.
