Grandview - Missouri Valley Park

What sets this playground apart?


The City of Grandview, Missouri, was looking for a park and playground unlike any other – a unique play opportunity that took advantage of the topography and treed setting in the park.


The site of the playground is very compact; however, the playground design used the topography to achieve additional play value allowing the kids to travel up, down and over different terrain in a very safe way.


The park utilizes all rope structures enabling the kids to play on the entire site without touching the ground until shooting out of the one-of-a-kind 55-foot long custom-made stainless steel tube slide at 7 mph! Other features include a spinning tree, swings, a zip line and percussive musical instruments such as bells.


And the kids are coming to the park! During its first month open, there were 23,919 visits for an average of 747 per day!

What challenges did the project encounter?

Much of the playground sits on a rock ledge, which made planning all infrastructure, including drainage, equipment layout and footings paramount. Working closely with the landscape architect and engineer, we insured the end result accomplished and exceeded the vision.

Because the park is in an area set back off the road, supervision was very important. Using the Berliner play equipment allowed for transparent sight lines through the entire playground by parents and law enforcement.
