The Great Play Giveaway

BCI Burke, a leader in the playground, park and recreation industry, is excited to announce Rachel Johnson from the Town of Shallotte as the winner of the Great Play Giveaway presented by Parks & Recreation Business and Camp Business Magazine! As the winner, the Town of Shallotte will receive a brand-new Intensity® playground valued at almost $15,000!

The BCI Burke playground includes all new play events from our Intensity® fitness product line, which is designed to challenge and exercise children’s bodies while they play. The Town will have the opportunity to customize the playground with color and create a space that enhances the community and gets kids and families outdoors, exercising and having fun!

“Playgrounds and parks can play an important role in providing a space for families to gather and get much-needed time outdoors,” said Michael Phelan, president and CEO of BCI Burke Company. “We are so happy to be able to partner with Northstar Publishing, Inc. and provide a deserving community with a playground that will provide hours of enjoyment,” Phelan added.

“I truly can't express how thankful we are here at the Town of Shallotte and this couldn't have come at a better time for us! We've been trying to figure out how we were going to fund the playground in our new 10-acre Mulberry Park to the extent we wanted and winning this contest helps us create our dream playspace,” said Johnson, Parks & Recreation and Business Promotional Coordinator.

Celebrating 95 years in the playground industry, BCI Burke’s Reinventing PlayTM business focus showcases continual improvement and premium customer commitment.
