Please join us and invite your friends and family who have children to come out and enjoy the new play space that is sure to be a hit with everyone.
Playground equipment includes:
We-Go-Swing: The We-Go-Swing is designed to include children and adults of all ages and abilities. The swing promotes social interaction for a truly inclusive experience by encouraging multiple users to work together to swing. With no need to transfer, the We-Go-Swing opens a whole new world of playground fun.
RollerSlide: The hillside embankment RollerSlide brings a cool, sensory experience to the playground and inclusive sliding activity to kids of all abilities. The RollerSlide can be used by multiple kids, side-by-side, at one time.
Lounge Spinner: The 36” diameter lounge spinners provide a comfortable seat for relaxing, spinning as well as self-regulation. If all the activities on the playground overstimulate a child, the Lounge Spinner provides a sheltered space for decompression or regulation. The semi-enclosed seat is comfortable for a parent and child to share and enjoy the activity together.
PTC Tower: The custom PTC Tower has been designed to mimic the PTC pedestrian bridge that crosses Peachtree Parkway. The equipment features two slides, a climbing structure, stairs, two towers, and the bridge between the two towers that have the replica lettering and leaf pattern from the 141 bridge.
Quantis: The Quantis Netplay Systems concepts are taking net structures and play to a whole new level, allowing children to choose endless routes of imaginative play and adventure! Quantis features an incredible figure-eight shape that is maxed out with fun from top to bottom. This innovative net system is the only way for unscripted, infinite play!
Unitary Poured in Place Rubber: Rubberized surfacing allows for easy access for anyone using wheelchairs or walkers. Surfaces are tested to accommodate fall heights up to 12 feet high. Aliphatic urethane bonds material together to provide a vibrant and durable surface that will stand up to the demands of weather extremes and active use.
