Playground Design

After the site assessment is completed, we begin our collective design process. Between you, your Burke Representative and Burke’s talented design team, your playspace is certain to be a destination for people to gather, develop, engage and have fun together. You can show off your space with the best 3D designs in the industry from our team to yours. These designs can be shared with donors, community members and children to get everyone excited and raise awareness about the new playspace.

A properly designed play environment creates the social, emotional, physical and cognitive growth that transcends the playspace and helps everyone find the best of themselves through play. While there are many aspects to a well-designed commercial playground, the four listed below are top of mind whenever we seek to design a place that will offer everyone the best play outcomes.

Play Variety: Providing a variety of play opportunities in one space helps children reap all of the important developmental benefits. Spinning, swinging, sliding and climbing all bring value to the play environment and children will flourish in a space that offers so many surprises and adventures for them to enjoy. Play variety also ensures that no matter a child’s ability, comfort level or preference, they will have a place to play, socialize or rest.

Universally-designed: Allowing everyone access into the playground is important, but having a space where play is not only accessible but equitable helps everyone get even more from play. No matter what your ability, our research shows play will benefit you socially, emotionally, physically and cognitively.

Intergenerational Engagement: Creating spaces where people of all ages can gather, socialize and be part of a community is important for neighborhoods, schools, churches and other organizations to thrive and be united. Adding small touches such as comfortable seating within the playspace helps foster intergenerational engagement and connection.

Quality: Quality products, long and strong warranties and people help make the design, installation and service process easier and more fun. Quality products and best-in-industry warranties make certain your playground equipment will be part of your community for years to come.
