Shade is essential to play spaces! It keeps children and their caretakers safe from harmful sunburn, gives a cool place to take a break from the heat and allows observers to relax comfortably while still being able to watch kids play. Shade comes in a variety of forms; naturally from trees or surrounding elements or shade structures. St Croix Recreation is proud to offer hard-top park shelters from Coverworx and fabric shade options from Shade Systems. We have maintained a great relationship with both manufacturers and several of their products can be found throughout our state of Minnesota. These can be added as stand-alone options covering everything from benches and picnic tables to kitchens and outdoor classrooms to those that shade community pools, playgrounds and dugouts. Don’t take our word for it, here is the CDC’s recommendation: https://www.cdc.gov/cancer/skin/pdf/skincancer_parks-recreation.pdf
Want to enjoy the summer months with a new piece of unique equipment? Berliner now offers a select few pieces that are kept in-stock at their facilities in Greenville, SC as opposed to waiting for manufacturing and shipping from Berlin! These options are a great addition to your park spaces and are some of their most affordable and FUN! Check out all of the options here.
Getting out and about this summer?
In continuation of St Croix Rec’s summer spotlight on the Greater Northern playgrounds we have completed in the past. These have been some of our favorite projects due to the kind people, stunning landscapes and FUN! If you’re in the area, check out the Adams Family Playground in Pequot Lakes, a generously donated structure completed with volunteer assistance. View more on this project here.
