DOMINO PARK Brooklyn, New York (shown here and front cover)


PLAY with Custom Today more and more communities are using unique design to create a signature playground. Smart design that combines eye-catching aesthetics with built-in play value. Custom design that can be as simple or as detailed as you like. From a fully themed wonderland to a nod to local tradition. From palettes that span oceans and deserts to urban hues and brilliant pops of color. From a touch of whimsy to all out fantasy. And everything in between. Discover how custom can put your playground on the map and make it a word-of-mouth legend.

DOMINO PARK Brooklyn, New York Inspired by artist Mark Reigelman’s interpretation of the historic Domino Sugar Factory, Landscape Structures designed it into playable reality. An intricate web of belting, nets and climbers lets kids scramble from the sugar shack up to the masher tower and over to the centrifuge. Stainless steel slides look just like industrial pipes. Casts of original factory valves are scattered throughout. And some of the wood was reclaimed from the original sugar shack, giving kids a tactile connection to history. playlsi.com/domino

PACO SANCHEZ PARK Denver, Colorado The giant 1950s microphone-inspired tower heralds the horizon, but the built-in play value is what really makes this park honoring local radio DJ Paco Sanchez truly extraordinary. Brilliant colors and bold presence aside, it’s the imaginative use of musical references that do the hard work of delivering dynamic play. Notes and scales offer footholds. Soundwaves create netted climbing adventures. Chimes travel with kids as they run across the bridge. When iconic play and iconic architecture come together, they make beautiful music. playlsi.com/paco

PIONEER PARK Mesa, Arizona The oldest park in the city wanted to become the most popular park, too. Three abstract towers— representative of local palm, pine and pistache trees—are interconnected by a multi-functional elevated walkway that not only invites kids of all abilities onto the playstructure, but also offers additional shaded play areas underneath. Climb high, swing below, slides and a custom rollerslide will get you where you need to go. Finally, the elevated design of this playstructure works well with the park’s weekly flood irrigation. playlsi.com/pioneer

FRENCH REGIONAL PARK Plymouth, Minnesota After nearly 30 years, it was time for this park to replace a much-loved playstructure. The goal: To maintain the integrity of the original all-wood-and-cargo-net design, then raise it to new heights. Literally. A 28-foot tower greets park-goers and offers kids a choose-your-ownpath climb into the treetops. An eye-catching mix of real wood and recycled wood-grain lumber along with a generous supply of belting and nets echoes the park’s history while upping the play value for a whole new generation— and now welcomes kids and parents of all abilities. playlsi.com/french
