Fill your playground with natural play equipment like the Large Granite Boulder. It holds all of the qualities of natural play equipment with the additional safety that all IPEMA certified equipment has and durability and uniformity of man-made equipment.
A boulder is a natural piece of playground equipment for children. As with most natural equipment, it allows kids to find their own way to play. A ladder clearly tells a child to climb up and then down. A slide has only one direction. When kids come upon equipment that lacks clear direction, it is a chance for them to use their cognitive reasoning skills. They have to figure out where they want to go on the equipment and how to get there. Children are drawn to more natural play situations such as climbing trees, creek walking, and even just jumping on boulders.
Each of these boulders is sure to last. Made from glass fiber reinforced concrete, the boulders retain the natural “rocky” appearance of, well, rocks. Even after years of children climbing, exploring, and having fun, the boulders will still be ready to “rock on”. Perhaps the greatest benefit of this equipment is that it just needs to be set in place and it’s ready to go!
All NatureROCKS Boulders require pouring of a 12″ thick concrete pad reinforced with rebar, prior to installation.
