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.

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.

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.

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.

Countryside YMCA – Lebanon, OH

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.

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!
