Cascade Hills Country Club – Grand Rapids, MI

Cascade Hills Country Club – Grand Rapids, MI

Cascade Hills Country Club in Grand Rapids, MI worked with Snider Recreation to design a play structure that would meet the needs of their members. The installation location was near the Country Club’s swimming pool, so they opted for a poured rubber playground surface.

Poured Rubber Surfacing is a great option near pools

The play structure pulls in some FUN equipment while getting the kids on the move! They will be balancing across the Sky Pods, racing down the Rock’n Roll and Spiral slides and spinning away on the Fierce Cyclone spinner.

The playground and surfacing installation came out pretty as a picture and was completed in plenty of time for the Country Club to get the pool area ready for the busy summer season.

Snider Recreation was excited to bring this Psychedelic color themed playground to the banks of the river at Lazy River Campground in Granville, Ohio early this spring! The installation crews have been busy getting new playgrounds installed before the warm weather brings playground visitors!

This structure was full of FUN! The first things you notice on this play structure are the amazing colors and all the climbers! This structure really packs it in with a triple viper slide, comet and extreme cyclone spinners, along with the stone slope and trigon tower climbers the campers of all ages will be enjoying their time together!

North Spenser County Schools – Lincoln City, IN

Snider Recreation designed a new playground for North Spenser Schools’ Nancy Hanks Elementary. The structure has the students on the move and has a capacity for over 100 students.

Double Viper Slide
Swift Glider

The structure is bookended with slides. On one end you will find the Double Viper Slide that’s filled with twists and turns, the other end you will find a Swift Glider. Whether you’re shimming your way up, or gliding down the skinny slide, the students will be on the move! The slides are joined together by climbers and overhead equipment that will challenge the students balance, strength and motor skills.  For the students who like to spin, there are 2 Fierce Cyclone Spinners attached to the structure!

Fierce Cyclone: challenges students to utilize their strength and coordination. It helps with the development of kinesthetic awareness as well as focus on proper posture.

Snider Recreation loves bringing the FUN into recess by installing play equipment for schools!  Students always love recess, but with this new play structure, their Fun just got a whole lot more active!

Twist n’ Turn Climber & Linking Ring Climber
Twisting Traverse

Climbers provide several developmental benefits to children, building upper body strength along with boosting balance and coordination while they play.

Dynamic Pad Link: challenges students to move from one playground deck to the other by building balance and strength while increasing self-confidence.
Athletic Arch: Students are always looking to reach higher, climb further, and reach the summit. Monkey bars have long been a playground equipment favorite, but Burke has reinvented the monkey bars, and we’ve designed some Overhead Events that will keep kids entertained and in shape including pull-up rings and horizontal ladders.

Salvation Army Cleveland Temple Corp – Cleveland, OH

Salvation Army Cleveland Temple Corp – Cleveland, OH

Snider Recreation has a FUN relationship with the Salvation Army in Northeast Ohio. The Salvation Army Temple Corps in Cleveland works to lift at-risk families, giving them physical & emotional support.  Cleveland Temple Corps recognizes the benefit of play for the youth that they are working with. Jeff Snider gave them a few outdoor play structure designs to consider, recommending two different age-appropriate play structures so there is safe play for 2-5 and 5-12 year-olds. Having age specific playgrounds creates space where children can learn and grow together.

Countryside YMCA – Lebanon, OH

Countryside YMCA – Lebanon, OH

Countryside YMCA has been doing renovations on their facility which includes a new play space for their little members. Snider Recreation came in and helped the YMCA to develop some play-based FUN!

Installed was an outdoor play structure filled with sound and hands on activity panels and a crawl tube for 6-23 month-olds.  Over 1700 square feet of rubber surfacing was poured into place so the toddlers have a soft surface for playing.

Rubber is a safe, all inclusive surfacing material and a perfect solution for this age of children.

Next to the structure is a fun tricycle track complete with stop & speed limit signs, a drive thru and gas station!  Imagination will lead the learning as the children will ride up to the drive thru to purchase food, or pull up to the pump to “filler up!”  Safety on the road will be taught with obeying the signs.

Snider Recreation enjoys designing age-appropriate play areas for the younger children, who are occasionally overlooked when it comes to playgrounds. This area created for the YMCA will help their little members to develop both physically and socially.  Snider Recreation promotes FUN for everyone!

West Muskingham School – Zanesville, OH

West Muskingham School – Zanesville, OH

West Muskingum Local Schools has a new elementary school complete with a custom designed play space by Snider Recreation! This design was FUN from the beginning!  The large area gave Snider Recreation the ability to install two age specific play structures, lots of swings, and a sports area.  Climbing, sliding, swinging and playing will bring laughter and so many benefits to the students. Exercise is crucial to both physical and cognitive development and the students will get plenty of it with this play space!

The age-appropriate playgrounds begin with a structure designed for 4-5 year-olds that has a Loop Rung Ladder, Double Rail Slide, and a Horizontal Overhead Climber.  The students can even chat with a friend on the other side of the structure with the FUN Phone. The structure is surrounded with different activity panels, like tic-tac-toe and the chimes panel.

The structure for 5-12 year-olds is an Intensity design to get the students active in their FUN. The climbing adventure will take shape with the Wild Web Rope Climber, Dynamic Discs, Limber Ladder Rope Climber, and the Trigon Arch Double Climber. The students will be reaching new heights as they maneuver over, around and through the climbers!

Located between the two structures are two series of swings complete with a rubber mulch playground surface. Swings are a staple on a school playground. They help children develop coordination and balance while providing an engaging sensory experience.

Sports Equipment was added into the large open space. Two Funnel Ball and Tetherball Poles were installed. These games provide hours of entertainment for children of all ages.  Last but not least two Basketball Hoops were installed.  What better way to spend recess then in a game of Around the World or H-O-R-S-E?

Site furnishings, like benches and tables, were also installed for the convenience of recess aides, teachers and parents as they watch over playtime.

The students will have so much FUN on this new playground equipment, they won’t even know they are exercising!

Walnut Beach Park – Ashtabula, OH

Walnut Beach Park 1

 

Walnut Beach

Ahoy, mateys! Have you seen the new pirate ship playground that landed at Walnut Beach? The city of Ashtabula and Snider Recreation worked to design this new, themed play area right on the beach. The play equipment, which is designed like a pirate ship, includes swings for adults and children, slides, equipment to dig in the sand and much more. Ashtabula’s city flag flies proudly atop the masts, instead of the Jolly Roger pirate flag.

Ashtabula was able to take advantage of an Ohio Nature Works playground grant to pay for the play equipment, leaving the city with less than 25% of the playground equipment cost. The installation was completed with a team of city workers, volunteers and representatives from Snider Recreation. This supervised installation allowed the city to purchase more play equipment for their fun-loving residents to enjoy.

If you have not had a chance to experience this new pirate ship themed playground, head on over to Walnut Beach and experience the fun…or you be walkin’ the plank, me matey. Arrrr!
