Playground

We at Playground Professionals are all about playgrounds! It's in our name and after all, who wouldn't be? Our inner child is awakened when we see kids at play on a playground as we reminisce on the fun we once had. It turns out playgrounds aren't just child's play - there are many important issues surrounding each and every play structure, whether it stands in your city park or child's school. Issues such as safety rules and regulations, accessibility for those with disabilities, and playground construction only scratch the surface. PGP invites you to dive into the world of playgrounds with us. If you are searching for playground equipment or service professionals be sure to search our Play and Playground Professionals' Spotlight. Playgrounds come in many variations. There are not only outdoor playgrounds, but indoor play areas as well. There are simple play structures and inflatable bounce houses, as well as theme-based and nature play areas - slides, swing sets, monkey bars, and more.
