Community Builds

What do we mean by Community Build?
Community members join forces with our supervisors to assemble & install the playground equipment purchased for your park/school!

Benefits of doing a Community-Build?
Financial Savings! Improves long-term maintenance & care of the play environment – All the hardworking individuals who made the playground project happen have ownership in the equipment and want the equipment to be stay in good condition and be safe. Community Pride! With positive Public Relations for your project!

Recruiting your Volunteers
Volunteers do not need construction skills! Detailed instructions are included for all components of the playstructure. The supervisor, Vern Lee, (who has over 13 years of experience installing playground equipment) is on-site for the entire project – he will drill all the holes – set the posts and install the decks, (with assistance by volunteers) – he will then assist the volunteers with assembling all components and attaching them to the playstructure. A walk-thru inspection will be done of the entire project prior to opening the playground for use.

Community’s responsibilities for a Playground Build

  • Site Preparation – the site should be clear and level prior to the installation. A visit to the site will be done prior to the arrival of the equipment to answer any questions or concerns regarding the site preparation.
  • Unloading of truck and Safe storage of equipment until the community build is the responsibility of the customer. The freight company will call the customer to setup a delivery date & time.
