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.

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.
