Aspire to the Best in Play – New Products 2024!

What does it mean to aspire to something? It means to want something very much. To hope to achieve something or be successful. It is what we do – aspire to be the best in play. And we want kids to aspire to something too – aspire to adventure, achievement or to new heights. We want communities to aspire to provide outdoor spaces that bring pride, togetherness and a sense of purpose. The new Burke products are research-based, innovative, fun, developmentally rich and they help build a community we all want to be part of.

Nucleus Aspire® is full of adventure, excitement and exploration – all of which contribute to experiencing more awe – and all the benefits of it – in our lives! This new play system looks like nothing ever seen on the playground before. Kids will aspire to get to the top, cross the rope tunnels and come down the fast, twisty slides. Nucleus Aspire pairs perfectly with other Burke play events, seamlessly designs with Burke's Nucleus®, Nucleus Evolution®, and Intensity® play systems. and provides action, adventure, development and a play experience like no other!

360 Loop® redefines play equity and creates space for more development, independence and play for children of all abilities. Using this transfer, climb, slide combination, children will experience play in a whole new way and be able to plan their playtime autonomously. Transferring onto the climber, kids can climb however they are comfortable using their upper bodies or legs to work their way to the top before they come down the slide and move back up the climber and back down the slide and repeat until their hearts and bodies are content. This is play design for the entire community and by the community – part of the research on the 360 Loop included focus groups with kids who will be using this new innovation. This creates a space that elevates the needs and voices of the kids whose voices aren’t always heard. This is Play That Moves You®! The 360 Loops seamlessly designs with Burke's Nucleus, Nucleus Evolution, and Intensity play systems. and provides action, adventure, development and a play experience like no other!
