Inspire imagination with PlayWorx custom themed play systems

Research shows that children learn best in environments where they are free to explore, discover and play. Dr. Joe L. Frost seconded this idea in his 1992 book Play and Playscapes where he stated that "play is the chief vehicle for the development of imagination and intelligence, language, social skills, and perceptual-motor abilities in infants and young children".

Another firm believer in play is GameTime, a division of PlayCore and North America’s leading manufacturer of commercial playgrounds, custom play spaces and outdoor fitness equipment. Enriching the lives of children and communities through play has been GameTime’s top priority since its inception in 1929. Today, they continue to bring people together through play and are changing the way children see the world through their PlayWorx custom play line.

PlayWorx inspires new levels of creativity and imagination by transforming ordinary playgrounds into extraordinary themed play spaces. Select from the perfect combination of stand-alone sculptures, modular GFRC components and themed panels, roofs and climbers to create a signature destination playground sure to stand out from the crowd. If you can dream it, we can build it.

With PlayWorx, you tell the story of your community’s individuality. Link your local heritage and culture by showcasing your community’s proud military roots, rich First Nations history or even a local attraction with custom etched panels and historical carvings.

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.

The importance of having a properly designed outdoor play area where kids can unwind is highlighted in PlayCore’s ‘Words On Play’ resource guide, which features an article “Nature: Infusing the natural world into the everyday spaces of childhood”, where Robin Moore, Director of the Natural Learning Initiative at North Carolina State University’s College of Design, discusses how play spaces are key to getting kids moving.

“If we are going to solve the problem of sedentary childhood, we have no choice but to refocus intense professional attention on design for outdoor free play in everyday naturalized settings,” shared Moore.

So whether your goal is to preserve your community’s heritage and culture or you simply want a fun playground that sends children into a fantasy land; let us design a space uniquely for you.
