North Spenser County Schools – Lincoln City, IN

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!

Odyssey Deck Link
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.

The Town of Versailles called Snider Recreation with their need for a new playground at Tyson Memorial Park.

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 1
Phase I: Twisting Traverse, Horizontal Ladders and Swift Glider Slide
Phase 2 (2)
Phase II: Triple Viper Slide
Phase 2 (3)
Phase II: Steep Peek Climber and Rock ‘n Roll Slide

Habitat for Humanity, Fort Wayne – IN

Habitat for Humanity, Fort Wayne – IN

Habitat for Humanity has expanded and built a new neighborhood at Fuller’s Landing in Fort Wayne, IN. Habitat realized that the children moving into their new homes would need a place to call their own. Habitat for Humanity called Snider Recreation to develop a commercial playground that would help to complete the community and give it a much-needed kids’ space.

The playground design brought in areas for parents and other adults to watch their children play in a relaxing bench area. But by far, the children’s area is the show stopper with climbers, slides, swings and kid force spinners. All pieces are designed to get the kids moving!

One of the new homeowners in Fuller’s Landing has five children. She also has 8 grandchildren, 6 “honorary” grandchildren and one great-grandchild. She loves to spend time with them and is looking forward to big family get-togethers at the Fuller’s Landing playground. She is just one of the families excited to see Snider Recreation install a new playground in the community.

Snider Recreation loves working with groups like Habitat for Humanity, Make-a-Wish and projects that use playground grants because it helps us all to see how communities can come together and support each other. This playground will be enjoyed by this community and its families for years to come.

YMCA Kosciusko Warsaw, IN

YMCA Kosciusko Warsaw, IN

Warsaw Indiana was building a brand new YMCA in 2014.  They needed playground equipment and they turned to Snider Recreation.  They chose a combination of spinning equipment, rock climbing walls, and slides.  They have two playgrounds.  One for the 2-5 year old kids and one for the 5-12 year olds.  The play equipment was installed and ready for play by early Fall.  They also elected to go with rubber mulch play surfacing.  A 6” depth was installed which has been tested and approved for 13’ fall heights.  This is a great new addition for the new YMCA.

Vigo County, IN Precast Restroom

Vigo County, IN – Precast Restroom

The truck delivering the Precast Restroom arrived at 9:00 am on November 19th, 2014.  Another great project by Snider Recreation!

   

When we arrived in the empty parking lot there was compressed stone, a cluster of electric, water & sewer pipes laying in a pile, and a 20 ton crane waiting to lift the precast building.  The semi arrived at 9:00 am, 2 hours later we had a restroom completed and ready for hook up.  A half a day later we were looking at a completely operational restroom!  No contractors, no piles of construction materials, tools, trash, or ruts to fix in the ground.  This design was created from scratch to meet the needs of this Vigo County facility.

Need a graffiti proof paint, heated, air conditioned, time locks, ADA Accessible Restroom added to your city?  Great for Welcome Centers, Parks, and any Public Area.  Call Snider Recreation for more information 800-888-2889.
