What is A Community Build Playground Installation?
A community-build play area refers to a playground that is built by individuals from the community, typically volunteers who have a personal stake and desire to enhance the community. The American Playground & Recreation company will supply the playground materials specifically for the structure itself, while the customer will be responsible for providing additional materials and tools like concrete, shovels, excavators, wheelbarrows, and more. If you require a comprehensive list of everything necessary, please contact one of our specialists who can send you an official guide to facilitate the process.
