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 Park Play Equipment for Children

Honestly, there are many specific benefits for the children who visit and engage with your park play equipment. Commercial park equipment is really designed for children to be able to enjoy some exercise, develop motor & social skills, and have some fun in the process! Here are just a few benefits worth mentioning:

    • Encourages outdoor play

A well-designed playground has a wonderful ability to lure kids away from their screens and encourages them to enjoy some needed outdoor play. Having the right playground equipment installed can make all the difference!

    • Improves health & motor skills

Playing outdoors gets the heart pumping and gets those muscles moving. There’s nothing like having children enjoy some fresh air and being able to stretch their limbs on some fun playground equipment! Playgrounds are also great for enabling children to refine their developing motor skills.

    • Social skill development

A playground can encourage children to work together, and also teaches them the value of cooperative engagement. Gaining these important social skills can make a child more confident, and also helps them to be better at expressing their thoughts and emotions.

    • Creative development

Open-ended play options encourage children to become more creative, and also develop better problem-solving skills. Each individual play experience can produce its own creative benefits for every child that has the opportunity to participate.

Some Things to Keep in Mind When Creating Your Custom Park Playground

A park is an important community hub, where neighbors and visitors can join together in introducing their children to some stimulating play experiences. When selecting and designing the right commercial playground equipment for your park, here are some important elements to keep in mind:

  • Location: Is the park in an urban setting, a rural setting, or somewhere in between? The details of your location can help dictate the materials and products needed to create the type of playground design that will work best for your particular situation.
  • Community: Carolina Recreation & Design endeavors to help you get a good sense of your community to provide you with the best playground set for your needs. It’s a good idea to develop an understanding of what type of family will be most likely to visit your park. It’s also wise to understand the history of your area, including demographics, your residents’ general preferences, etc. We can then work with you to customize your playground area to best match your individual community’s personality and spirit.
  • Sustainable: The playground you create for your park will ultimately become a part of your greater community, so it’s important to make sure your park playground equipment is safe, sustainable, and built to last. Carolina Recreation & Design only sources products and materials of the highest quality; the safety of the children who engage your playground is our highest priority! Wherever possible, we also know that you want to commit to green standards, so your playground is both responsibly-sourced and also safe for the environment.
