At Landscape Structures, we're more than the leading manufacturer of park and playground equipment.

We never stop reaching for knowledge and pass along the information we gather so we can continue to be a playground education resource.

Continuing Education Seminars

We offer parks and recreation professionals and landscape architects continuing education credits (CEUs), learning units (LUs) and professional development hours (PDHs) from IACET, AIA and LA CES. Learn how to bring a session to your team.

Playground Equipment Benefits

A well-designed playground attracts children to play while teaching key developmental skills. Adding stimulating and challenging equipment to a playground increases the value of play. Discover all the benefits of play for park, school and community playgrounds.

Developmental Benefits of Play

Play promotes developmental benefits that are critical for the successful growth of a child's brain and body. Learn about the emotional, social and cognitive development that happens during play and what that means for creating healthy kids and communities.

Balancing Safety & Challenge in Playground Design

Including playground elements that test and challenge children to learn new skills increases the developmental benefits of play. However, this skill-building and development can't take place without age- and developmentally appropriate challenges. 

Outdoor Fitness

Including outdoor fitness equipment in a playground design encourages kids, teens and adults to make healthy and active choices. Outdoor fitness equipment makes exercise fun and engaging for all ages and fitness abilities.

About Playground Styles

Playgrounds come in all shapes and sizes like inclusive, nature-inspired, custom, fitness-focused, geometric, towers and so much more. Explore the all the different styles of playground designs here.
