Client Testemonials – Parks & Recreation

I have had the pleasure of working with St. Croix Recreation for over twenty years. As a provider or park and recreation equipment, I would have to say that they are one of the finest companies I have done business with. Their response time for returning service calls/e-mails has been exemplary. Their sales representatives are friendly, courteous, and most importantly honest. Their installers are skilled, competent professionals who know their equipment and how to get the job done properly and in a timely manner.

When it comes to providing a quote, placing an order and final installations, St. Croix Recreation has made the process seamless. Most importantly, once they have made a sale, I know that I can count on them for follow up…

Parks Maintenance Supervisor

I have found St. Croix Recreation to be a reputable, honest and reliable company to do business with. Johnnie Johnsen has a well-known and richly deserved reputation for excellent customer care and support. I highly recommend considering St. Croix Recreation as a source for any public or private projects that use park equipment.

Parks and Recreation Department

As in many projects with St. Croix Recreation, the planning, design and final construction met all our expectations. Most importantly, the neighborhood served by the new park and playground were exceptionally happy with the product.

I have no hesitation recommending the services and/or products offered by St. Croix Recreation and especially their owner, Johnnie Johnsen. If I can be of any assistance answering any questions concerning St. Croix Recreation’s qualifications, please do not hesitate to contact me directly.

Parks & Recreation Director

Our maintenance staff was impressed with the playground which included a 2-5 year old and 5-12 year old unit. The installers worked well with our staff and were very professional in their interaction with the neighbors. The project was done on time and on budget. The site and equipment were left neat and clean and ready for play.

I have found St. Croix Recreation and their staff to be reputable, honest, and reliable and I would not hesitate to recommend them for any services or products that they provide.

Manager, Parks and Recreation

Client Testimonials – Schools

Dear Mike, I write on behalf of Nova Classical Academy to thank you for the way you and your company created our new school playground. The playground is absolutely beautiful and a joy for children to use! When I look at our end-result, I cannot imagine that we ever considered other companies than St. Croix Recreation.

I also want to extend my thanks for the quality workmanship in installing the playground. I know we had more than a few challenges to endure including working with and supervising volunteers from the school community, dealing with a torrential downpour, and overly hot weather. Even so, your team was professional and personable, and the quality of the work is unimpeachable. Finally, I appreciate your professionalism and your follow up after installation to be certain everything was to our liking.

 Brian D. Bloomfield | Executive Director | Nova Classical Academy

I began working with Mike a little over a year ago to plan and implement our school playground update. Mike and I met to evaluate our space, discuss ideas, and plan a budget.

Following our meeting he drafted plans that met my requests. After our fundraiser was complete, we met to finalize possible options based on the funds available. Mike ordered all of our equipment and provided me with a list of construction materials that would be needed to finish the project. Finally, he assisted us during self-install. He was there every step of the way.

I recommend Mike Basich and St. Croix Recreation Company, Inc. to anyone looking for a professional playground. His service was everything I expected and more.

Mr. Patrick Gallivan | Principal | St. Mary of the Lake School

I’d recommend St. Croix Recreation Co. Inc. to anyone who is looking at getting a new playground. We are very pleased with our decision to go with them. Thank you Chris and the rest of the crew! We really appreciate your hard work!
