Saint Andrew Parish School – Columbus, OH

Saint Andrew Parish School wanted to update their surfacing on their playground. Snider Recreation installed over 1100 square feet of Poured-in-Place Rubber surfacing around their existing play structure.

Poured Rubber Playground Safety Surfacing is made from recycled materials and is available in thicknesses from 1-1/2″ to 4-1/2″. The surface layer can be specified in one or a combination of several standard colors, and the impact layer provides maximum attention for safety.

Snider Recreation jumped into the FUN designing a playground for Northwood Elementary. This play area brought in two structures, 12 traditional swings, freestanding equipment and poured-in-place rubber surfacing that will have the students spinning and climbing like never before!

The freestanding pieces include a balance beam, a double arch climber and lots of spinners, including the Orbitron, Kidforce and Fierce Cyclone Spinners to name a few. The structures are filled with climbers of all shapes and sizes. A few are the agility arc, active apex and odyssey link climbers.

There are 5 slides of different heights, twists and turns. The structures are set apart in different play zones surrounded by a sea of rubber surfacing.

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.

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.

Activity Structure for 6-23 month olds
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!

Salvation Army Zelma George Facility – Cleveland, OH

Snider Recreation has a FUN relationship with the Salvation Army in Northeast Ohio. The Salvation Army Zelma George Shelter provides emergency shelter for families with children. They wanted to give a safe area for their families to relax and have some FUN. They built a small courtyard and Snider Recreation came in with a play structure for 2-12 year-olds complete with rubber playground surfacing.

This was a small little space, but we packed in the FUN with this age-appropriate playground! The playground equipment has 2 climbers, 8 activity panels, 2 slides a large deck for children to gather and a hex roof & petal post toppers! The play area is surrounded with rubber surfacing to keep the children safe and a funnel ball post was installed to the side.

Playground accessories, including benches, will be placed around for the families to gather together while their children are building skills and friendships!












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!
