Playground and Splash Pad Design Process

Let’s create a playground! Let’s create a spray park!

At PlayQuest we love to plan playgrounds, splash pads and parks!

Many of the people we work with have never done this before, and just thinking about it can look like a very tall climb up a very steep mountain. Financing, selecting and installing a playground can be challenging and often times there are more questions than answers.

PlayQuest can assist you with the process – from conception to installation to continued service, we are here to support you and help ensure you get your DREAM playground, on-time and on-budget.

Step 1: What do you Need?

Our PlayQuest team are trained to help you conduct a needs assessment that takes into account such factors as objectives, age of children, abilities of children, capacity requirements and budget limitations. We’ll also conduct a Site Assessment to analyze all of the details related to your playground including space, budget, site requirements and more.

Consulting and design is always free at PlayQuest!

Step 2: Playground or Spray Park Design

Your PlayQuest specialist can bring your playground to life, providing you with 2D and 3D drawings to help you visualize your creation. This enables you to select just the water features, play structures and activities that best suit your preferences.

We only use the CSA compliant equipment from the most reputable suppliers in the industry to ensure your playground weathers prairie winters, and keeps looking new years after it’s built.

Step 3: Build Consensus and Raise Funds

Because of our years of selling to cities, park boards, schools, day care centers, religious institutions, and other organizations, we understand the challenges you face in gaining the “buy-in” of parents, voters, trustees and other important stakeholders. That’s why we’re prepared to help with everything from playground fundraising and grants programs to presentations.

Step 4: Playground and Splash Pad Installation

There is more to building a playground than assembling equipment. There is the ground preparation, concrete work, utilities, and surface installation that is typically also a part of a playground or splash pad project.

At PlayQuest we have the in-house team to handle all parts of the playground and spray park construction and installation. We’re the only company in Alberta who can offer this! With PlayQuest performing all the work, your site is properly prepared and installation is done right and in compliance with industry safety guidelines.

With PlayQuest as the sole contractor, you can deal with one contact – and spare you the hassle of coordinating several unrelated trades people. We can also guarantee the whole project, ensuring your playground is enjoyed for decades to come.

Step 5: Service

If you have any questions or need additional service, we stick around long after your playground is in the ground and the kids have played on it. Call us at PlayQuest at 1-855-980-8118. You can rely on the entire PlayQuest team and our industry-leading warranties to stand the test of time.

Contact us if you are just starting your project. We provide grant writing services, educational presentations, preliminary designs, project budget estimates and site evaluations that will make the planning and fundraising process much easier.
