Converting a Parking Lot to a Playground

Sheltering Arms Daycare – Bronx, NY

2,800 sq. ft. Poured in Place Surface & New Playground Structure

Playgrounds can be created from a simple empty parking lot. While encouraging children to play in a parking lot isn’t the safest idea, converting a parking lot to a playground is an excellent idea. This we constructed in Bronx, New York was just that. The empty parking lot you see in the photos was transformed from a blank space to a brand new—and accessible—playground using poured in place rubber surfacing. The playground play structure and dome were first surface mounted directly to the existing asphalt parking lot. We then installed a colorful new poured in place surface complete with a tricycle track!

This project will give you a glimpse of the unlimited possibilities of a start to finish total playground installation.
