No need for lines with the Pine play structure. This large playground can hold up to 60 children at once. There are plenty of places to climb, slide, and pretend with friends. Starting on the ground level within the shade, there is a Chatter Bug set up for children to sit and talk. Nearby is a PlayCounter where kids can delve into their imaginations. The PlayCounter can be a store counter, a desk, or just a shelf to hold items. Behind it, PlayPod Pedestals are arranged to give children a challenge as they head for the decks of the structure. On the outermost post next to the stairs, a BigWheel waits to be spun. As kids make their way up the structure, they will come upon a DuoChute Slide. Right next to it is a vertical climber of metal loops. On the other side of the slide is a Cargo Net made up of ropes. Right at exit of the climber is a Chime Panel for kids to make their own melodies. As kids head further in, they’ll come upon the Spiral Slide. For the truly adventurous, they can make their way to the top deck to take the massive Solo Chute Slide back to the bottom.
When choosing a playground it is important to consider where the components have come from. Conditioned wood or recycled metal posts are both opportunities to take part in environmental stewardship. Wood was once a staple of playground design, but as time has continued, it has become less common. But, wood and natural materials make for natural learning environments that can be important for children’s development. Several teaching methods use nature and natural tools as ways to reach children. On the other hand, the recycled metal used comes from items that would otherwise rust away in dumps. The recycled plastic comes from specifically milk jugs. As Americans, we tend to drink a large amount of milk every day. This results in millions of used milk contains every year. Even if the play set purchased only uses a few thousand of those milk jugs, its that many more that didn’t end up in a landfill. Your playground purchase can be part of the solution that limits waste.
