The playground equipment at the Windsor Elementary playground was in good shape. However, the PTA wanted to give the children something more; something that would enhance their play and physical activity levels, such as swings, spinners and large musce climbers.

Working with the PTA, we discussed the play equipment offered by Burke. We decided the Comet II for spinning, the Rally Round for climbing plus a new three bay swing with six swings best fit the available space, budget, and wants of the children.

“Windsor Elementary loves the new playground equipment!”

Why Swinging, Spinning & Climbing?

Burke playground equipment - Spinner

  • Swinging integrates a smooth and synchronized movement pattern and promotes aerobic fitness, muscular force, and whole body awareness.
  • Spinning develops kinesthetic awareness and postural control, and improves comprehension of speed, force, and directional qualities of movement.
  • Climbing fosters whole-body muscular strength, endurance and flexibility plus arm and leg coordination.

Expanding a Playground Makes it Feel New Again

The Round Rally is a hit with the kids!

The Windsor Elementary playground is a perfect example of what can be done to greatly expand the play value and play benefits of an existing playground. When existing play equipment is well-maintained, new stand-alone components can be added to fit the available space and budget.

By adding these few basic pieces, the whole playground feels like it is new again!

ABCreative provided turn-key service: layout, delivery and installation for the new pieces.
