Church Playgrounds

Creating your church playground is easy when you start with a well-developed plan. Our planning guide provides you with easy-to-follow steps to design an inviting play space for kids to learn, grow and have fun together.

A place of worship or any faith-based organization should feel welcoming to all and be a place where spiritual and personal development is fostered. A church playground helps nurture this development by creating a safe place for children to play and connect with one another.
A playground also serves as a healthy activity for children during worship, or other church or school events. Church playgrounds can also be a way to bolster membership and enrollment when families see play areas set up specifically for children.

With nearly 50 years of experience, Landscape Structures can help you build a church playground that supports and encourages the social connection and spiritual togetherness your faith-based organization desires. We will work closely with you to ensure the end result best reflects your distinct vision and needs while staying within budget.

Our careful attention to detail will make sure your church playground is safe, inspiring and enjoyed by your faith community for years to come.
