The Playground of the Future

Placeholder alt text

The Highland Recreation Complex in Largo, Fla., is a hub of recreational activities, with programs, classes and events to meet just about any need. In addition to the facility with its indoor playground, walking track, party rooms, preschool, basketball courts, fitness center and more, the site is also home to the Highland Family Aquatic Center and, now, a new, futuristic playground that has been wowing visitors since its opening in January 2021.

As the Largo Park and Recreation Department began to consider replacing the existing approximately 20-year-old playground at the site, they were eager to include towers to allow kids to experience the thrill of climbing. Ultimately, the Hedra® playsystem from Landscape Structures was selected. It includes Hedra Scout for 2- to 5-year-olds, and a custom Hedra tower for 5- to 12-year-olds.
