Snider Recreation went to work for Westview North Apartments designing a playground for their apartment complex located in Parma, Ohio. This structure has FUN equipment and playful colors.

The design brought some playground essentials, with a twist! Swings and slides are expected on a playground, added into this structure is a fierce cyclone spinner, a jungle vine and crest point climber and play panels. The little ones will love the duck spring rider, while moms or dads enjoy the bench that is located close by.

Snider Recreation completed the playground installation in the spring, so it was ready for play on the first warm day!

The Town of Versailles called Snider Recreation with their need for a new playground at Tyson Memorial Park. Snider Recreation’s local Indiana sales representative was quick to come up with some custom playground designs for their review.   Snider Recreation quickly took an open field and created 3,570 square feet of FUN! This new play space is surrounded with play ground borders, ADA ramps, rubber mats for high traffic areas and wood fiber surfacing; making it age-appropriate and all-inclusive.

This design has an exciting play structure, Novo Arc Benches, Kid Force & Comet spinners and swings, including the new Volito Swing! The structure brings Climber after Climber! Power Pipes, the Wild Web, Hyper Helix, the Active Apex and Apex Wave Climbers to name a few!  The structure also contains a Rock’n Roll and an 8 foot Double Viper Slide.

Miami Meadows Park – Miami Twp, OH

Miami Meadows Park – Miami Twp, OH

Miami Township wanted a playground at Miami Meadows Park that would be for everyone. Snider Recreation designed and installed a playground that brought in age appropriate structures and freestanding equipment.  Jeff Snider kept the goal in mind to make this a playground not just accessible but also inclusive!  Jeff incorporated play equipment that addressed the physical, emotional and social needs of every child.  The overall design incorporated inclusiveness throughout with a variety of equipment to open a life of play to children with all abilities.

Design Drawing

At the front of each structure is a Welcome Sign showing the appropriate age the equipment is designed for. The younger structure, designed for 2-5 year olds has a balcony, ramps and bridges.  The structure pulls in leaf climbers, a rock crawl climber, and a pod walk. Three different Slides surround the structure. And activity panels are scattered below, around and throughout.  There is a wall of activity panels located under a canopy where you will find imagination in full swing!

The all-inclusive playground for 5-12 year olds brings in many climbers.  Including the popular Twist n’ Turn and Tree climbers. The slides are faster and bring a twist!  This one has Viper Slides, Spiral Slide, and a Double Poly Wave!

5-12 structure

Free standing equipment includes a Rockit Tunnel, Kidforce Spinner, Orbitron and the Cruiser. The Cruiser has enough room for two wheelchairs and two full benches, which allows up to 12 children of all abilities to play together.  There are long bays of swings which include toddler seats and the Freedom Seats along with belt swings.

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.

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.

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.
