Based in NC, Serving the Recreation & Design Needs of NC, SC, VA, & TN

From our home base in Mooresville, NC, the extended Carolina Recreation & Design family is proud to serve the states of North Carolina, South Carolina, Virginia, and Tennessee. And we do much more than just sell recreational and outdoor equipment; we install everything we sell, and we also provide a full array of site preparation, landscaping, and finishing services. In fact we’re licensed contractors, so we can take care of anything that needs doing on your site!

Why Choose Carolina Recreation & Design

Sure, there are other dealers that sell recreation and outdoor products. What makes Carolina Recreation & Design different? In a word, we don’t just sell stuff; we actually get stuff done! We pride ourselves on offering premium products, maintaining high standards of installation and workmanship, and providing a level of customer service that you simply won’t find elsewhere. We just take better care of you, period!

Other groups can sell you a playground or outdoor structure, but we can actually install it for you start-to-finish, including taking care of any site preparation that may be needed. Most of our competitors simply can’t – or won’t – go the extra mile for you like we do. We provide complete, stress-free, turnkey solutions. Carolina Recreation & Design offers the convenience of being a one-stop shop for all your recreational and outdoor equipment needs, and we provide the peace of mind that comes from knowing the job will be done right the first time!

Don’t Just Take Our Word For It!

Listen to what some of our many satisfied customers and clients have to say about their experience with Carolina Recreation & Design


I just built a daycare center and called Carolina Recreation & Design to work with me for playground equipment installation. They were great. The crew they sent out was very professional; they followed the timeline they promised. Great company to work with. The playground they gave me will make a lot of kids happy and safe.


Carolina Recreation & Design was very easy to work with when our neighborhood association decided to upgrade the features at the park. From the initial contact to the final inspection, it was a great all-round experience. I would highly recommend to anyone looking to install a commercial playground in their community.


Our church considers Carolina Recreation & Design a part of our family. They have designed and built three play spaces at our church so far. Carolina Recreation & Design creativity, along with their professionalism, make working with them a joy. The final product is safe, current to industry standards, and, most of all, a fun space for the children. We would recommend Carolina Recreation & Design to anyone interested in upgrading their play spaces.
