The Ideal Playscape, A Festival of Fun… A Culmination of Playgrounds

June 24, 2010

Creating an ideal place for children should be a priority for all communities. This place needs to be more than anything safe and healthy. It also needs to be accessible to the majority of the public in terms of location. Costs need to be manageable as well, both in upfront costs and in long-term maintenance. Once these basic requirements have been met, the final piece of the puzzle can be fit into place… the fun… the excitement… the entertainment. There is a way to satisfy everyone’s playground demands for fun, and that is by including all three playground types in a single site.

The first type of playground is the water spray park. This site is perfect for taming the summer heat and for making new friends in the community. Not only can a family enjoy the summer sun, but they can also be next to neighbors, friends, and future playmates. Water really brings people together and with a park that encourages water fights through the use of sprayers, cannons, and the perfect spot for water balloons, it is no surprise that the first type of playground at this festival of fun just maybe the most popular.

The second must is a lounge or picnic area and large fields for games. A shelter will shade patrons from the scorching sun and will also offer a great spot for tables, benches, and can act as the backdrop for barbeques. This spot will also act as a way for adults to better enjoy the tri-playground area because they won’t be forced to wait in the sun for their children to tire out playing. Instead they can be close to the third spot, the traditional playground, and can easily keep an eye on their kids.

The third playground is the ones we all think of immediately when the subject comes up. These include slides, swings, ladders, poles, and all the fun stuff. Playgrounds these days have a ton of exciting technology that children can explore and act off of. Some of these are the Orb-X, the Gravitron, and the Mega Tower. Now all can enjoy the park more with the combination of multiple playgrounds into one site… enjoy the festival of fun!

Playgrounds Need Creative and Unique Ideas

June 17, 2010

The great thing about playgrounds is that they are set up to succeed from the start. What child wouldn’t want to take a slide ride or shoot back and forth on a swing set? This may be why designing and building playgrounds is so fun, they are just so well received by the community and children they serve. However, it is also important that they continue to be unique and creative so that the individual needs of the community are met and so that a place has a distinctive site to call their own. Here at Miracle Playsystems we really try to take each project and mold our designs around exactly what the client wants. We come up with many project specific ideas so that each project is unique and creative.

So what kinds of ideas are unique and creative? Well, color schemes should be designed to fit in the sit essence of a place. Blues and greens should be played with to form nature scenes and reds and yellow should combine to form a truly unforgettable site. Structures should be built to serve multiple purposes. For instance shade structures can be designed into a pirate ship theme to form the sails of the site. Actions such as this keep playgrounds interesting and functional as well. Of course you want to be as unique as possible, but the challenge is getting there.

To be truly unique you can’t just try to be unique. You have to fit the exact specifications of your project and the uniqueness with develop itself. Each client’s needs will be different on some level so by tailoring each design to those needs your design will be rather creative and individual, plus functional and appealing. Playgrounds need creative and unique ideas to stay interesting, but also so they fit the needs of a community, client, and area. And you know a playground is going to be fun!

New Technology to Shake Up the Playground World!

May 4, 2010

New features in the play industry have been invented—actualizing ideas that are really extraordinary. These creations have taken traditional playground equipment to a level probably once thought impossible. For instance, did you ever think a clear rock wall could exist? Can you even think of what a bubble climber could be? Technology in the playground realm has reached new heights, allowing children to have new experiences; and equipping landscape architects with even more design options.

The Clear Rock Wall is one of the best, most cutting edge features out there today.

The clear rock wall is from Xccent Play is the first of its kind. On the Xccent website, details of the equipment are as such: it is, “made of virtually indestructible extruded polycarbonate,” and includes 70 holds, “made of durable UV resistant polyurethane.” Images of the wall can also be found on the site. Obviously, the wall is built sturdy and secure, but it also has holds on both sides so that kids can climb facing each other—a truly unique experience. The wall is fresh, but what’s better is that it continues to offer the benefits of play.

Experiences such as this one on the Clear Rock Wall are unique and fun.

Another novel feature is the bubble climber, from Miracle. This colorful attraction has a form like no other. Instead of the traditional holds that kids use to climb on, it has bubbles cut out that offer the same activity but with a different twist. The aesthetic appeal is also increased with a more organic feel that stems from flowing curves. The looks are also improved with vivid colors like bright red and green. This contemporary playground update will turn any playground from bland to original and remarkable.

Its aesthetic, its functional, its cost-effective... its the bubble climbing wall.

These two innovative features take tradition, stick it in the oven, and turn up the heat a couple notches. When modern technology teams with original thinking, anything is possible—in the playground world, that means more fun.

News from a Playground Master, Miracle Recreation Company

April 1, 2010

Here at Miracle Playsystems we like to keep up on all the latest playground news, especially when its from Miracle Recreation Company…so here it is. Did you know last year Miracle Rec Company pledged “$250,000 to the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children over the next three years, and [will] help cover lodging costs necessary to reunite family members upon the recovery of missing children,” in their ongoing effort to promote the total wellbeing of children? Its programs like this that really make the difference for a ton of families.

This feature is heavily used by the surrounding community; it is easy to see why... it is tall, unique, and offers one fast ride.

Miracle also released their new MiracleTech product line—the line in which the SONIC SCREEN came from—which includes ParkWatch®, a state-of-the-art infared security camera system that actually transmits its recordings via wireless connection for an all digital security approach…also introduced was the SiteBrite®, a patented lighting system that carries a low voltage touch. These technologies can be implemented into any new design or fitted onto an existing site… oh the power of technology.

Go further than the equipment to ensure long-term safety... implement technology such as the SONIC SCREEN.

And lastly, Miracle Rec Company went above and beyond back in 2008, and did not receive as much recognition as deserved. The playground company, for Grants for America’s Schools SM, offered $5,000,000 in money so that schools could apply for Commerical Play System Funds. This program is in support of the Benefits of Play as well as the new push to end childhood depression and obesity by encouraging physical, mental, and social gains through play. Miracle Rec has had a productive, worthwhile last couple of years it seems.

Take the already cutting-edge playground rock wall to the next level, features like these are what kids love and should get to use!
