People who have been able to take the kids to the new playground at Central Park of Maple Grove may be wondering what goes into the design of such a unique playground area.

According to Maple Grove Parks and Recreation Director Chuck Stifter, a lot of creativity, dedication, collaboration and fun.

“The playground planning process was executed over the course of three years by a talented team that included city planning staff and the Maple Grove Park Board, landscape architects, playground designers, civil and structural engineers, play equipment manufacturers and installation contractors,” he said. “Critical to the success of the process were numerous visioning and brainstorming sessions, design concepts and refinements and municipal reviews/approvals, all of which ensured the final product would fully achieve the team’s vision for a unique, innovative and high quality play experience for users of all ages.”
