Tyson Memorial Park – Versailles, IN

Tyson Memorial Park – Versailles, IN

The Town of Versailles called Snider Recreation with their need for a new playground at Tyson Memorial Park. Snider Recreation’s local Indiana sales representative was quick to come up with some custom playground designs for their review.   Snider Recreation quickly took an open field and created 3,570 square feet of FUN! This new play space is surrounded with play ground borders, ADA ramps, rubber mats for high traffic areas and wood fiber surfacing; making it age-appropriate and all-inclusive.

This design has an exciting play structure, Novo Arc Benches, Kid Force & Comet spinners and swings, including the new Volito Swing! The structure brings Climber after Climber! Power Pipes, the Wild Web, Hyper Helix, the Active Apex and Apex Wave Climbers to name a few!  The structure also contains a Rock’n Roll and an 8 foot Double Viper Slide.

Whether it is designing a whole new playground, installing playground surfacing or adding freestanding equipment, Snider enjoys sharing the FUN with communities, schools and churches. Give Snider Recreation a call if you would like to join in the FUN!

A playground isn’t complete without spinning and swinging! For those who like to twirl the design brought in the ever popular Comet Spinner which is great for spinning alone or with friends! Along with the long bays of swings the students will be flying through recess!

Below the Turf playground surface you’ll find a soft infill that is completely anti-microbial, to provide a lasting, healthy play environment. A shock and drainage pad provides shock absorption and impact protection from falls.

Miami Meadows Park – Miami Twp, OH

Miami Meadows Park – Miami Twp, OH

Miami Township wanted a playground at Miami Meadows Park that would be for everyone. Snider Recreation designed and installed a playground that brought in age appropriate structures and freestanding equipment.  Jeff Snider kept the goal in mind to make this a playground not just accessible but also inclusive!  Jeff incorporated play equipment that addressed the physical, emotional and social needs of every child.  The overall design incorporated inclusiveness throughout with a variety of equipment to open a life of play to children with all abilities.

At the front of each structure is a Welcome Sign showing the appropriate age the equipment is designed for. The younger structure, designed for 2-5 year olds has a balcony, ramps and bridges.  The structure pulls in leaf climbers, a rock crawl climber, and a pod walk. Three different Slides surround the structure. And activity panels are scattered below, around and throughout.  There is a wall of activity panels located under a canopy where you will find imagination in full swing!

The all-inclusive playground for 5-12 year olds brings in many climbers.  Including the popular Twist n’ Turn and Tree climbers. The slides are faster and bring a twist!  This one has Viper Slides, Spiral Slide, and a Double Poly Wave!

Free standing equipment includes a Rockit Tunnel, Kidforce Spinner, Orbitron and the Cruiser. The Cruiser has enough room for two wheelchairs and two full benches, which allows up to 12 children of all abilities to play together.  There are long bays of swings which include toddler seats and the Freedom Seats along with belt swings.

Wayne Trace Local Schools – Payne, OHIO

Wayne Trace Local Schools – Payne, OHIO

Wayne Trace Local Schools wanted to add some new equipment to their playground at Payne Elementary. Snider Recreation came in and got on the move to creating a design that would have the students smiling!  Payne Elementary got moving with their application for a KaBoom Playground Grant and volunteers were on the move for the supervised community installation.  The students are on the move everyday at recess!  Talk about Play that Moves!

Kids love to climb and spin, and Snider Recreation loves to make kids happy! For Payne Elementary we brought in climbers, and lots of them!  Climbers challenge the students to reach higher, use their imaginations and increase their strength, endurance and stamina.  The Triple Verto climbers, Satellite Walk, and Plexus give unlimited adventures!  The Comet and Kid Force Spinners add the twist of excitement that kids desire.

While the balance beam helps students with their core strength it is also a place for imagination and challenges.  Can you walk the plank? What about backwards? Will you touch the lava, or be attacked by sharks?  The games are only limited to the students imagination!

When all the moving has them feeling a little tired, or if they need a place to sit with a friend, the new tire swing is the place they will be. Swings are always a favorite on any playground, but when you can swing with a friend, life doesn’t get any better!

Snider Recreation loves the opportunity to put their mark on the commercial playgrounds in the Ohio region. Meeting new people in the communities and assisting with the playground grant process, makes for fun days at work!

Bartholomew Consolidated Schools – Columbus, Indiana

Bartholomew Consolidated Schools – Columbus, Indiana

In 2014 the Bartholomew Consolidated School Corporation began the process of designing a new playground for their Lillian Schmitt Elementary School in Columbus, Indiana. Snider Recreation came alongside and helped them design a playground that would get their students on the move!

The school worked on obtaining playground grants that would help in the cost of the equipment. Snider Recreation worked to design a playground that would be installed in phases, to defer costs into different fiscal budgets.

Our team started with Phase One of the playground improvement in the spring of 2015. This phase added freestanding spinners, the Comet and Swift Twist. Along with a play structure designed for building healthy, active kids! This unit included agility equipment such as the Twisting Traverse, Agility Arc and Healthy Hammock. It added the overhead Horizontal Ladder so the students can swing their way to building arm strength, a Swift Glider to quickly slide away and the ever popular Extreme Cyclone Spinner.

Phase Two began in 2016 with the removal of the old playground structure and the installation of the new structure. This Phase brought the slides! You will find the students racing down the Triple Viper slides and bumping down the Rock ‘n Roll slide during outdoor time. This structure is tied into the Phase One structure with an Amped Link climber. The students love climbing new heights on the Steep Peak climber and hanging out on the Balcony. One thing is for sure; the students are starting to wonder what Phase Three of the new school playground will bring, but this is where the story will be continued…

Phase 1 (2)
Phase I: Comet
Phase 1 (3)
Phase I: Extreme Cyclone, Power Peak Climber, Limber Ladder Rope Climber, and Launch Pad

Phase I: Twisting Traverse, Horizontal Ladders and Swift Glider Slide

Norwayne Local Schools – Creston, OH

Norwayne Local Schools – Creston, OH

In the spring, Snider Recreation was called in to add some new outdoor play equipment and replace a playground set at Norwayne Elementary in Wayne County. The school’s playground fundraising allowed them to enhance their recess offerings by replacing their current selection with one of our new, state of the art, motion-based outdoor playground sets.

But it wasn’t that cut and dry. In a fun twist, Norwayne administration allowed the students to vote on which play equipment would be installed at the school. They gave the children two outdoor playground ideas to choose between and settled it with an all-school poll. It was all of the buzz amongst the students for weeks; each student proud of the playground option they were rooting for.

The new school playground they chose, pictured above, focuses in on agility and movement. It includes sky pods, dynamic discs and the ever popular Cyclone spinners (which have already been nicknamed “the twirly wirlies” by students). Norwayne also added a freestanding comet spinner to give the playground a little more twist. The children can be seen waiting in line to experience the rush of this playground enhancement!

Students, staff and parents were enjoying the custom designed playground structure so much, they did not want the school year to end. Recess just got way more fun!
