Filling the Gaps at Your Playground Site

As your school or park grows and playground standards evolve, expanding your playground will keep it inclusive of all children and students. Instead of replacing your playground, we can expand your existing site to add ADA playground equipment or trending features. Our team will evaluate your playground and find the best solution for your budget. Our playground expansion services allow you to maintain your existing playground while boosting the fun with just a few events or large custom playground installations.

Adding Inclusive Playground Equipment and Features

Our playground expansion service specializes in making your playground more inclusive. We install additional adaptive playground equipment and implement more inclusive features so your playground meets ADA requirements and inclusivity standards. We help you transform your playground site into a playground for all children and students in a cost-effective manner.

The Benefits of a Playground Remodel

Low Maintenance Recommendations

With a deep understanding of playground maintenance, we ensure every piece of equipment and new feature is considerate of your school’s or park’s maintenance crew.

Cost-Friendly Option

You don’t need to rebuild a new playground to stay up to date with the current inclusive playground standards or trends. We can add equipment to your existing playground site that stays within your budget.

Work with Multiple Playground Vendors

Since we are not a playground manufacturing representative, we source adaptive playground equipment from different trusted vendors to find the best equipment for your needs.

Planning All Abilities Parks and Schools

A lot goes into offering a playground for all children and abilities beyond providing wheelchair accessibility. An inclusive playground accommodates children with autism and sensory processing disorders (SPD). We help fill the inclusivity gaps at your park’s or school’s playground site while remaining within your budget. Our team takes care of the entire process, so your staff or crew doesn’t need to manage the planning and installation process. With SafetyFirst, you tell us your accessibility goals and budget, and we’ll make it happen.

In my nearly 30 years of facility management, SafetyFirst is the finest playground service company I have worked with, Bob Clarin, president of SafetyFirst was always available and was on site daily. From the simplest repair, a missing bolt to a complete rebuild including drainage and play structure relocation, SafetyFirst completed the work well and on time.

I would like to express my satisfaction with the wood chips and mats that we have purchased from SafetyFirst. The chips bind together well to make a nice playground surface with the fall protection we need. Bob has always had the materials delivered on a timely basis and is very pleasant to work with. I am sure we will be doing more business Bob and SafetyFirst in the future.
