Outdoor Playground Equipment for All Shapes and Sizes

Play is an important part of childhood and crucial to the development of all children. From climbing to sliding to spinning, games and more, children learn important skills through play that transcend into the rest of their lives and give them a basis for growth. Here's just a few beautiful, new playgrounds.


Douglass Community Center - Leesburg, Virginia

Outdoor spaces serve many purposes – learning, developing, adventuring, engaging, socializing and helping communities find the best of themselves through outdoor play. The playspace at Douglass Community Center has another purpose – to be a place where American history is taught and honored and where contributions by Black people are highlighted in a way that will inspire future generations. The Douglass School is an important part of the community both historically and currently. It was built by the African American community in 1941 and on the grounds in now a playspace where all community members can learn about the history of the school and the history of Black Americans in a child-directed way through play. Custom pieces tell the story of important milestones in history while panels throughout the space provide historic facts that will help build understanding and provide historical, and current, information to all users. This space combines everything that is incredible about the potential of play for people of all ages, backgrounds and abilities.

The playground features Burke’s NaturePlay® line including the TimberTower and ClubHouse® panels/roof options that give a treehouse feeling to the entire park.
