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.
Honestly, there are more than a few reasons to have a well-designed, safe, and FUN playground installed at your church, worship center, or related facility. Commercial playgrounds for church facilities are designed for children to be able to get some needed exercise, develop both motor & social skills, and also be able to enjoy themselves at the same time! Here are just a few specific benefits:
Multiple studies confirm the many positive benefits of allowing children opportunities to play outdoors. It gets kids away from their screens, allows them to get some fresh air and sunshine, promotes the development of needed motor skills, and also just gives kids space to have some fun! Some folks wrongly assume that church can’t be fun, but having a commercial playground on-site can help your church to turn that assumption on its head for the folks you’re trying to reach.
Church playgrounds are great places for kids to be able to make some new friends, and also help kids to develop some important social skills, too. Among other things, a playground can help teach the importance of teamwork, empathy, and patience (learned through waiting for your turn to use a swing, seesaw, or other play equipment feature). Learning to interact with others in healthy ways is a skill that will serve all children well, at church or anyplace else!
Being able to attract young families is a goal for practically every church in America. Is your church serious about attracting families with children? Then quit putting it off, and decide to install a bright, new, commercial playground on your church property! Plus, if your church is interested in starting a preschool or daycare program, then having your own playground on site isn’t just a good idea – it’s a real legal necessity.
A playground is an inviting feature for your church property and can add some nice curb appeal in its own right. Plus, it sends a positive message about your church to the community, letting folks know that your church really does care about children. It also lets people know that your church recognizes how to have fun – something for which the church isn’t knew.
This message is conveyed on signage found at the playground installed by Carolina Recreation & Design for the Fair View UMC of Mooresville, NC, and it really does a great job of putting into words the kinds of impact that having the right church playground installed can have for your church. In this case, the church designed to post this sign to let community members know they are welcome to visit both the church playground, as well as the church itself. What kind of message would you like for your church playground to be able to communicate with your community?
So, you know you want and need a playground for your church. But how should you design your playground? And which types of play equipment do you want to include? What features should you be looking for in commercial play equipment and standalone play features? Here are a few things you’ll want to keep in mind:
Consider how much space you have available, along with the lay of the land in terms of terrain, as well as sun exposure. Will you need to grade to smooth out some uneven ground? Would it be wise to add a shade canopy or canopies? Are there nearby trees which either can’t be removed, or that you don’t really want to remove, which might affect how your equipment needs to be arranged? And if you’re not sure about how to best answer these questions, the pros at Carolina Recreation & Design can help!
Playground equipment designed for older children really isn’t age-appropriate for toddlers, and vice-versa. Consider the typical age range of the kids you expect to be taking advantage of your play equipment, and be sure to plan accordingly. Got any special needs children in your congregation? Or just want to make your playground as accessible as possible for children of different ability levels? Then you’ll definitely want to consider adding some inclusive play equipment. Most places of worship seek to be accepting of everyone, so your playground should be welcoming to children of all ages and ability levels, too.
Are you just installing a commercial playground to give children someplace to play, or do you also intend to use it as part of your children’s programming strategy? If it’s mainly intended for pure-play value, look for some safe, fun equipment that will help children to develop in a generally balanced manner. If you intend for your equipment to be used more intentionally by Sunday School classes, Vacation Bible School programs, after-school programs, etc., then you may want to gain feedback from each of those respective stakeholders about the type of playground you want to create for your church.
Like most anything else the church does, you most likely operate by a specified budget when it comes to projects like having a commercial playground installed for church and community use.
