The Jewish Community Center of Metropolitan Detroit

Oak Park, MI USA


Playground Overview

As a preferred vendor of the JCC Association, we worked closely with the JCC of Metropolitan Detroit to design a playground that could accommodate lots of energetic and playful kids. A PlayBooster® playstructure, designed for kids ages 5 to 12, includes several slides like the Rollerslide, SlideWinder2® and Double Swoosh™ Poly Slide. Even more, the Evos® playsystem was installed to provide more challenge for kids' bodies and minds. With the O-Zone® Climber, RingTangle® Climber and Swiggle Stix® Bridge, kids will find plenty of playground components with which to engage and stay active. And if that isn't all, the HealthBeat® outdoor fitness system provides an extra fitness challenge for ages 13+!
