Time to get out there and verify your equipment held up well over the winter! Common areas to check are:
- Connection Points
- Moving pieces like swings and spinners
- Surfacing – many times materials like Wood Fiber need to be replenished every 2-3 years, especially in high use
- zones. Find more on our surfacing options here:

In April, we are highlighting playhouses and other ground-level equipment. These are great pieces to incorporate as they require little surfacing & use zones. They are fun for all ages and are easy for intergenerational interaction. This year, BCI Burke introduced NEW playhouses to their line-up, check them out here: https://www.bciburke.com/our-products/category/imagin
