Impacting Communities Through Play

We design, build, and maintain playgrounds and environments for communities across the Land of 10,000 Lakes.

How We Play

Learning Based

Play is education. It is an opportunity for everyone to grow, to develop, and above all, to learn.

Nature Based

We believe in connecting back to nature, back to where we should play. Not removing the landscape, but embracing it.

Play for all. Inclusive play embraces this concept, allowing everyone the opportunity to play, regardless of ability.
