Utilizing an angled base design perfect for tire swings and multiple entry climbing ladders, the playcenter design is the ultimate activity center. Kids are endlessly challenged to develop gross motor skills and coordination. Endless design configurations and unlimited expandability ensure the challenges never end. As always parents can rest assured knowing they have purchased a play set engineered for safety and long term durability.
Why an Outdoor Playcenter?
Children today have more options for playtime than ever before, including video games, puzzles, educational software and more. However, there are many reasons why a classic wooden playcenter can be an important part of your child’s development:
- They encourage social play. Playcenters are designed so one child can play, or multiple children can have fun together. When children share a playcenter, they learn about taking turns, agreeing to rules, sharing, lining up and more, which helps them hone the skills they need to get along with others.
- Playcenters combine ideas for exciting play. With many different options, children can play on one activity for a bit and move on to another one. Playcenters are designed to get children moving seamlessly from one activity to the next, setting them up for hours of creative fun.
- They develop emotional intelligence. Playcenters can help encourage confidence and self-esteem. The spiral slide or climber that is scary one week can be conquered the next. As children learn to overcome their fears and try new things, they’re also working on their independence and emotional skills.
- Playcenters hone mental and intellectual skills. Playcenters can include activity panels and areas where children can learn numbers, colors, shapes and letters, reinforcing what they learn in the classroom.
- They encourage creative play. Unlike more structured playtime, playcenters allow kids to create their own games and use their imaginations. This sort of free play can encourage children to develop problem-solving skills. It also encourages them to take creative risks and to think outside the box.
- Playcenters get kids moving. With children sitting in front of TV screens and in classrooms for much of the day, it’s a good idea to encourage them to get active and to go outside. Playcenters make physical activity fun and not a chore, so children work on balance, strength, coordination and more without being aware of it. Along the way, they develop a love of fitness and the outdoors that can last a lifetime.
Playcenters are also a popular type of play equipment because they take the guesswork out of fun. With a complete set, you don’t have to worry whether a specific slide will work with a set of swings, and you don’t need to fuss about how a deck area will work with a climber. With sets, experts have put together the most popular and efficient combinations, based on research into the most popular playground activities. This way, you end up with a play area kids will love. It’s easier to use a playcenter rather than many separate pieces of equipment, and it’s often more space-saving and budget-friendly, too.

- Our playcenters include real wood. Many of our playcenters are 100% solid-beam Pacific cedar. This is because cedar is naturally resistant to mold, rot, fungus and pests, so your playcenter lasts longer and does not require harsh chemical treatment. In addition, solid beam construction is sturdier and can last for years or even generations. Many parents prefer a playcenter made from a naturally beautiful material rather than one made from fossil fuels.
