Nature theme playground: Lake Wilcox Park

  • Wednesday, 11 November 2015

Children enjoy nature-inspired custom themed playground

Think back to some of your fondest childhood memories involving nature play. Do you remember your excitement and laughter as you built your first tree house, splashed in the creek, dug dirt holes and swung on branches?

Now you can bring nature to the playground, thanks to PlayWorx, the custom themed play line from GameTime. PlayWorx is setting imaginations free and changing the way children see play. If you can dream it, we can build it.

PlayWorx transforms ordinary playgrounds into extraordinary custom play spaces with its uniquely designed themed play systems that link a community’s heritage and culture. Choose from the perfect combination of stand-alone custom play sculptures, modular GFRC components and themed panels, roofs and climbers to build a signature destination playground unique to your area.

Surrounded by a beautiful shoreline and boardwalk, Lake Wilcox Park in Richmond Hill, Ontario is a popular outdoor destination. When the community had an idea for blending play equipment with their living landscape and telling the story of the area, Play! by Crozier set out to create a unique nature-inspired PlayWorx play space for the park.

The nature-based playground sends children into a fantasy land; playing high above the ground in the tree top design that looks like the real thing. As they run back and forth to the slides, they enter a tree fort, where kids can congregate and create an imaginary land.

Perched along the nature playground are several curious critters, including the pileated woodpecker (Ontario’s largest woodpecker, seen below), monarch butterfly, red squirrel, green tree frog and even some cinnamon and sensitive fern. These beautifully-etched critters are not only cute, but also teach children about local habitat.

Not only is the PlayWorx line receiving nods for its aesthetic appeal, durability and safety, but it’s also being praised for enhancing the health and wellness of children of all abilities by offering an unstructured play environment where they can unwind and be inventive.
