Design and Planning

Play It Safe Playgrounds are experts at playground and water park design and layout. Our equipment design for parks, schools, preschools, churches, apartments, HOA management companies and other commercial entities is complimentary with a “no strings attached” policy. At Play It Safe Playgrounds and Park Equipment, Inc., we have CPSI certified designers on staff to help create the playground of your dreams. Our product lines include playground equipment, water parks, shade structures, site furnishings, skate parks, fitness equipment and more. In most cases, a typical design project starts out with an initial phone conversation, then we schedule a site visit to discuss your specific needs in detail.

Custom Designs for Small, Medium & Large Spaces

Park planning does not just focus on the equipment, but the entire play space, and includes inclusive play for individuals of all abilities. Play It Safe Playgrounds will help you fully utilize your site’s play potential. Here are some basic site considerations you will need to plan for:

Inclusivity – We believe that every child, regardless of ability, should have an equal opportunity to connect with other children through the power of play. We not only design equipment to meet or exceed ADA guidelines, we can help you create an inclusive, universally designed play space that enables kids to access play activities just by using their everyday means of mobility.

Playground Installation

Play It Safe Playgrounds and Park Equipment, Inc. understands that the playground purchasing experience doesn’t end with the sale of the equipment. Our crews are fully capable of installing your park equipment, playground safety surfacing, and border material in a safe and efficient manner. Our playground installers are also available for site work such as grading, drainage, surfacing sub-base and concrete work. Not only do we specialize in installation of playgrounds, but we can also assemble and install shelters and site furnishings. We provide turn-key installation throughout Arizona and Southern Nevada.

Our factory certified and trained professional installation crew will come and do the hard work (installing the system) for you! We always have NPSI certified leadership on site to make sure that the equipment is installed per federal safety guidelines. In addition, we utilize qualified contractors with the International Playground Contractors Association – meaning we have the proper credentials and training to best handle any playground project. We also work with a carefully selected group of contractors to handle anything that we don’t normally do.

Play It Safe Playgrounds and Park Equipment, Inc. respects the fact that we are dealing with safety issues and are very conscientious of making sure that the job is done right. We also realize that we are working in environments where children are present and make it a point to set a good example of behavior. No foul language or clothing is allowed on our crews. We also strive to leave the area cleaner than when we got there.
