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 went to the design board again for Rochester Community Schools. This time it was for a new school playground for Hamlin Elementary. The design that Snider Recreation presented was one that would get the students on the move to having FUN! It also has them stepping out and using Burke Turf for the first time at one of their schools!

Let’s not forget to highlight the play structure, which is age-appropriate for the children. It has a Double Spiral Viper Slide for the students to race down and an 8’ Expedition Climber for the students to reach new heights! Other climbers on and around the school playground are the Power Peak, Leaf and Verto climbers.

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.

Southwest Solutions: Thrive by Five – Detroit, MI

Thrive by Five – Detroit, MI

Snider Recreation was called in to work with the Early Childhood playground for Thrive by Five through Southwest Solutions at different locations throughout Detroit. They were designed to be age appropriate playgrounds for 2-5 year olds.

?

The structure at ALL SAINTS was designed for agility. Preschoolers can crawl through a tunnel or climb a mountain.  They can balance across the Twisting Traverse and Power Pipes while their imaginations have them crossing a river of lava…whatever you do, don’t touch the ground!  They can climb and crawl around the apex hole climber too. As they play they are building their upper body and leg strength along with their risk assessment skills. There is a shaded platform, known as a playground shade, where preschoolers can gather and play with the activity panels or race down the Rock’n Roll Slide!

Preschool Agility: Ready? Set? Go!

Play is an important part of developing motor skills in preschoolers. It is through play that they develop balance and coordination.  It is through play that they develop social skills. It is through play that the child builds confidence and friendships.  We at Snider Recreation help childhood centers design and install play structures that meet the needs of the budding minds and bodies, where imaginations can go wild.

Crown of Life Preschool- Rochester Hills, MI

Crown of Life Preschool- Rochester Hills, MI

This play space was carved out of the woods for the new Crown of Life Preschool playground, and the director was concerned about making an inviting play space for the kids and yet harmonizing it with the wonderful natural backdrop.  Snider came up with a design and color palette that successfully and thoughtfully integrated the play space into the outdoor canvas. The use of blues and greens appealed to the kids, and yet blended well.  Using Burke Turf as the surface completed the natural design.  It is beautiful, natural and so much fun for the preschoolers.

Southfield Christian School – Southfield, MI

Southfield Christian School – Southfield, MI

Southfield Christian School had a vision to re-develop their aging playgrounds and called on Snider Recreation to help make their dream into a concrete plan.  Working closely with the principal and the parents, Snider came up with a playground that provided a challenging and exciting play experience for everyone.  The custom color palette was created by the principal to engage the kids.  The structures were designed for both defined age groups (2-5 and 5-12) and are specific to their developmental abilities.  Climbing, sliding, balancing, upper body, and motion are all incorporated into the design for each age group.  Watching the kids play now is a joy.  Knowing all that fun is also making an impact on their development and health is the best feeling of all.
