Rope Climbing Challenges Kids of All Abilities

April 22, 2015

Lawson Elementary
Leavenworth, KS
Berliner, Burke and Duraplay

Climbing equipment taps into a child’s creative level of problem solving, going from point A to point B with no specified path. The Leavenworth School District considered the benefits a rope climbing structure could provide, such as:

  • Exercise with a social atmosphere.
  • Visibility of the kids while playing.
  • Play equipment for children of all abilities.

After seeing the rope structure in a Missouri park, the District decided to build a similar structure with swings at Lawson Elementary School. Using products from Berliner and Burke, ABCreative helped create a design to fit their existing playground pad and used poured-in-place, seamless rubber safety surfacing from Duraplay.

The school used a Greenbush purchasing contract to purchase the equipment.
