Calvary Chapel Ministry (Oceanside, CA) Chooses Church Playground Equipment from American Parks Company™

Church Playground Equipment for Calvary Chapel Ministry from American Parks Company

'Word to the Wise' commercial playground installed at Calvary Chapel Ministry (Oceanside, CA).

The children really enjoy going outside and playing on this new structure, and the shredded rubber safety surfacing provides a comfortable cushion.

Calvary Chapel, located in Oceanside, California recently installed a brand new playground for their ministry, purchased through American Parks Company in McKinney, Texas.

Pastor Dan Kettle, who oversees the finance and accounting activities at Calvary Chapel, shared his purchase experience: “While searching the internet for playground vendors, I found a very wide selection of playground designs on the American Parks Company website, and was able to take advantage of a special promotion going on at the time. When I phoned the company to get additional information, I was very impressed with the service and attention I received. This provided further peace-of-mind in my decision to order our new structure.”

Relating to his experience after placing his order, Kettle continued, “I was informed that the playground would arrive by a specific date and time. Sure enough, that is exactly when it arrived.”

When asked how the playground was finally installed, Kettle explained, “My son and I chose to install the playground ourselves, and spent the next couple of weeks putting it together as we had time.” The result? "The children really enjoy going outside and playing on this new structure, and the shredded rubber safety surfacing provides a comfortable cushion.”

Calvary Chapel selected the ‘Word to the Wise’ commercial playground structure, which includes a variety of engaging activities for up to 25 children aged 5 to 12 years. This play structure features:

  •     Two fast Single Speedway Slides for classic slide fun.
  •     A challenging Apex Climbing Attachment to improve physical fitness.
  •     A Fireman’s Pole Climber for a quick trip to the bottom.
  •     A 90° Horizontal Hoop Ladder akin to classic monkey bars.
  •     A Playwheel to engage imaginative play.
  •     Long lasting, high-quality 3.5" diameter steel posts and steel hardware.
  •     Polyethylene plastisol coated punched steel decks for optimal durability and comfort.
  •     UV stabilized rotationally-molded and HDPE plastic components.
  •     ADA Accessible via transfer station with handhold for inclusive play.
  •     Meets or exceeds ASTM, CPSC, and IPEMA safety standards.

Like many communities, the focus is around family life and creating opportunities for children to enjoy healthy cognitive, social, and physical development. A community playground is a place where friendships are formed and where happy childhoods begin.
