"Fort Fun" Playground from American Parks Company

The residents of Thoroughbred Lake Homeowners Association now have a large, impressive outdoor playground, and further reason to inspire families to head outside to mix and mingle with other residents.

How do you encourage neighborly interaction in the middle of a high density residential community? You start by investing in fun outdoor recreational activities that get residents out of their homes, and meeting new friends creating new memories.

Thoroughbred Lakes Homeowners Association chose American Parks Company to provide a new commercial playground that would accommodate a large number of children, and engage them in meaningful outdoor learning, and group or independent play. The residential community thrives by providing a lush landscape of outdoor space surrounded by lakes, offering a peaceful alternative to the nearby Palm Beach city bustle. The HOA determined that a new playground would be an ideal way to accentuate its existing outdoor recreation facilities.

Parks play an important role in the development of an authentic community feeling, but given the recreational volume that many residential playgrounds experience, it is important to select top quality outdoor equipment that will offer years of enjoyment for families, and worry-free use. Thoroughbred Lakes HOA chose the impressive “Fort Fun” playground, which offers inclusive play opportunities for children from ages 2 to 12 years-old. The large commercial play structure offers elevated decks and activities for up to 65 children, and makes it easy for children of all capabilities to scale the structure thanks to its being ADA accessible.

The “Fort Fun” playground offers just about everything that children love to explore. Kids love to use the Crawl Tunnel to access different sides of the playground structure, or to hang out to escape the hustle and bustle of play time. They can race friends to the top by one of many routes in order to try the two fast moving Single Speedway Slides. The Vertical Loop Climber and the Cliff Climber are perennial favorites that offer fun and fitness opportunities.

The structure also includes a House Panel and Store Panel at ground level, which encourage children to express their imagination for creative group or independent play. The panels are provided with shade from a square roof directly above, that help minimize UV exposure for children at play. This is a valuable feature for communities in hot climates such as Lake Worth, Florida.

The residents of Thoroughbred Lake Homeowners Association now have a large, impressive outdoor playground, and further reason to inspire families to head outside to mix and mingle with other residents. The HOA knows that friendships begin on the playground; thanks to American Parks Company, the new “Fort Fun” play structure will be a place where new friendships will grow.
