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.

Benefits of Enjoying Music in Outdoor Experiences

Combining music with outdoor experiences produces powerful positive impacts on children. Outdoor music settings add more vibrancy, engage the brain, and strengthen the sense of belonging and connection with others. Here are some more research-based benefits of music in nature:

  • Singing, playing, or just listening to music can release neurotransmitters which facilitate our ability to bond with one another and experience pleasure
  • A growing body of research confirms that experiencing music in nature positively engages the brain,
    builds social cohesion, and creates the conditions to build harmonious communities
  • Outdoor music spaces engage people of all ages, races, and musical ability to experience and share
    their creative expressions of tones, rhythms, and melodies
  • Experiencing music in outdoor settings promotes community engagement and greater individual
    happiness as it relaxes, soothes, and feeds the soul
  • Listening to music has also been shown to have a positive effect on those who suffer from
    neurological brain disorders

Why Outdoor Musical Instruments are a Great Addition to Your Playground

Everyone loves music, including children. Music can be therapeutic. It can help relieve stress,
enhance memory, express feelings, and help with better communication skills. Combined with outdoor
play, music can become an important part of a child’s overall learning and development. Here are just
a few reasons you should consider adding musical instruments to your playground environment:

  • Emotional Impact

    Children LOVE making their own music — even when that “music”
    might sound like noise to an adult! The ability to be able to play their own instruments is really
    FUN for children! Music can help nurture their creativity, confidence levels, and self-expression.
    And in terms of mood, music just makes a child happier!

  • Physical Impacts

    Listening to and playing music have been shown to enhance physical endurance, improve blood-vessel
    function and help children (and adults) to sleep better.

  • Social Interaction

    Playing instruments together increases children’s focus and helps them to work better together,
    ultimately resulting in improved social engagement. It also helps kids to practice their listening
    skills, and assists them in learning how to develop a better sense of community.

  • Inclusive Play

    Adding musical instruments to your playground is an easy way to bring a more inclusive element to
    your play space. Outdoor musical instruments are naturally inclusive because they’re designed such
    that any child can play them, including children who are normally limited by certain mobility
