GameTime releases 2016 Trends Guide in Outdoor Recreation  

GameTime, North America's largest manufacturer of playground equipment, has been leading the way in creating new and exciting play opportunities since 1929. With more resources available than their competitors, GameTime is constantly developing new research programs to better understand how children play and to continuously evolve their play environments. 

Part of GameTime’s ongoing commitment to enriching childhood through play is to identify key trends in outdoor recreation. They’ve hit the mark with the 2016 Trends Guide, which outlines the Top 10 Trends in Play! The 2016 Trends Guide is the result of dozens of interviews with park and recreations directors across the country, as well as with parents, children and other community stakeholders.

As the proud supplier for GameTime in Manitoba, Ontario, NWT, Nunavut and the Maritimes, Play! by Crozier is happy to keep you informed with the latest trends in outdoor recreation by offering the 2016 Trends Guide to you FREE of charge!

Communities Get Healthy & Have Fun with Challenge Course! 

As obesity in Canada continues to be a growing concern, the challenge of finding new ways to inspire ALL ages to be more active remains. Young children get their daily dose of exercise on the playground, while adults head to the gym or stay outdoors on a GameTime GTfit Adult Fitness Park to stay fit.

But what about the older children? You know, the teenagers with their heads buried in their phones and little (or no) motivation to get moving. Physical inactivity among youth is a major problem, but GameTime, a pioneer in the commercial playground and outdoor fitness industry since 1929, believes they have a solution with Challenge Course by GameTime.

Challenge Course is GameTime’s exclusive response to the fastest-growing segment of outdoor recreation: challenge and obstacle races. Instead of watching American Ninja Warrior (a widely popular sports entertainment show where contestants compete obstacle courses) behind electric devices, Challenge Course encourages people to get out and compete themselves.

See how Challenge Course brings the American Ninja Warrior experience home!

Why Challenge Course?

It’s the perfect way to encourage multi-generational fitness and recreations. It hits on our competitiveness at the right level- kids want to beat their time – so they will come back to use the equipment again and again. Meet. Compete. Repeat.

Meet. A place that connects people of all ages to socialize with family and friends.

Compete. Encourage active lifestyles for all ages and ability levels, and reverse the obesity epidemic.

Repeat. Increase park utilization, maximize green spaces by creating a destination people come back to again and again.
