Kids will be kids, and whether they are all American or living in the beautiful Cayman Islands, outdoor recreation is a valuable opportunity for physical and cognitive development.

Kids will be kids, and—no matter where they live—outdoor recreation is a valuable opportunity for physical and cognitive development. That’s why when Creek Primary School in the Cayman Islands contacted American Parks Company about commercial playground equipment, their play experts were up for the international challenge.
The Cayman Islands school system is based on the British (UK) model of education and features primary and high schools for education up to the age of 16 years. In the Cayman Islands, free public education may end at the age of 16, but it is provided for free for all citizens regardless of income.
With the help of the play experts, the school chose the Rhyme ‘n Reason commercial playground structure, which accommodates up to 40 children aged 5-12 years with engaging learning and fitness activities, including:
- Two 2’8” Double Speedway Slides to safely race their friends down.
- One 2’8” Single Speedway Slide for an exhilarating experience.
- One 4’ Single Speedway Slide.
- A Whistle (to make some noise) at ground level.
- UV stabilized and rotationally molded plastic parts.
- Lead-free Polyethylene coating for optimal durability.
- 12 gauge galvanized powder-coated steel posts (3.5” in diameter).
- Steel hardware, aluminum decks, component clamps and post caps.
The Rhyme ‘n Reason play structure is also ASTM, CPSC and IPEMA safety certified, as well as ADA accessible for inclusive play—accommodating children with special mobility needs.
For additional safety, durable Rubber Safety Tiles were provided as a quality surfacing material to help protect against fall injuries for children at play. The Rubber Safety Tiles also make the playground even more accessible for students with disabilities and mobility devices.
