We are so excited to announce Gustavo Vergara, Culture and Leisure Services Director, from the City of Cape Canaveral as the winner of the Great Play Giveaway presented by Parks & Recreation Business and Camp Business Magazine! As the winner, the City will receive a brand-new Nucleus®/Intensity® playground valued at almost $30,000!

As part of the third annual contest, all recreation departments and camps could enter to win a playground for their community that will help children develop skills that transcend the playground, including motor skills, cognitive planning and cooperation.

Cape Canaveral Mayor, Bob Hoog said, “On behalf of the City of Cape Canaveral, I’m grateful for the opportunity to enhance children’s lives through active play with this amazing gift. The playground will be a welcomed addition to Manatee Sanctuary Park which is our flagship riverfront park.

Children from our summer camp program chose the color scheme and are excited to see their selection come to fruition.”

Bringing play to communities is what moves us at Burke to come to work every day and drives our passion to develop the best products and design the most inspired playgrounds! Last year, we decided to partner with Parks & Recreation Business and Camp Business Magazine to giveaway a playground to a community! So much FUN! The Town of Shallotte, NC won a playground that fit perfectly into their plan to add to the playground already planned for Mulberry Park!

 

For 2016, we decided to give away a bigger playground and update the name to the GreatER Play Giveaway! We are excited to announce the City of Powell as the WINNER of a brand-new Nucleus®/Intensity® playground valued at more than $28,000!

 

“This is an exciting time for us in Powell,” said Bowers, Assistant Director of Parks. “Our community is vibrant and we pride ourselves on providing outdoor spaces for the whole family. Winning this playground from Burke allows us to complete an outdoor playspace much sooner than we otherwise would have, giving our residents one more place to stay active and engaged.”

 

We hope the City of Powell enjoys their new play equipment as much as we enjoyed providing it to them!
