Park N Play Design

We believe play offers dynamic, hands-on experiences that provide people of all ages opportunities to explore, learn, and make connections within their community, for meaningful relationships.  It is through play that we inspire the mental and emotional mind, motivate the physical body, and discover an awareness of spirit and equality. Now more than ever, it is critical to study play behaviour, seek knowledge on the power of play, and promote best practices that advocate lifelong play across nations.

We believe in hands-on personalized service for every project and budget. We treat our new projects with the same excitement and enthusiasm we did with our first!

Our Approach

We like to approach and assess each project on its needs, in order to make sure we are building the right play space for the right environment. We offer everything from supervised installs, volunteer installs, to full turn key installations.

Our aim at Park N Play design is to make the process as stress-free as possible.  Regardless of your project budget or size, you get the exact same level of comment and enthusiasm.

All our play spaces are built to Canadian Safety Association (CAS) Standards which insures all our materials and manufacturing process are built to the highest stringent safety guidelines to allow for the safe enjoyment of all our play spaces.

Exciting, Epic Adventures Start with A Well Planned Play Space Project. We work with you to help bring your playground designs to life.

Our Process

We make our process as fun and collaborative as we can! We start off the process with the basic requirements of each project. We address the budget and site size in question. Then we thoroughly research the history of the site to see if we can incorporate some of that history into the creative process (ex: they may have a circus on the exact site that is purposed for the new project.)

Our visionary artists then take our research as the design inspiration and theme of the new project.  Once the idea and vision are formed we take our idea and create a technical drawing/blueprint of the new space. From there it’s into the world of 3D where you can get the see first hand the design come into life and take on its character. We love to use colors as an accent to bring the play space to life. We aim for all our installations to be as creative as possible because we want to see the kids play on our spaces.
