Discover a Mountain of Play Value

Smart Play® Summit™ by Landscape Structures

In the eyes of children, playgrounds hold a larger than life place. Infinite moments of discovery and imagination take place in these spaces while shaping their rapidly growing minds. Creating an unforgettable play experience in a community can define it for years, and even decades to come.

However, every playground is not created equally. With new innovations design concepts, Landscape Structures Inc., a Delano, Minnesota-based commercial playground equipment manufacturer, helps create unique playgrounds that attract people near and far while also allowing park planners to address the needs of the community. Playgrounds can instill the values, signature elements, and ideals of the area it will inhabit — all while creating a sense of community.

With playground innovations like Smart Play® Summit™, kids ages 5 to 12 will search for hidden animal tracks and camping gear as they trek across the laser-cut climbing decks and three-dimensional nets. Park planners can bring the mountains to their play area with this condensed-footprint, giant-play-value playstructure that welcomes crowds for fun, imaginative play.

Even more, Summit provides children of all abilities with multiple ways to play in the mountain tops. Children can use the spiral steps and Switchback Climber as an accessible route into the mountains. Along the way, they’ll fine a variety of learning and sensory play experiences with many activity panels. And different materials throughout the mountain, embedded animal tracks and a gradation of cool colors that match kids’ ascents create a wide variety of visual play.
