Prosper, Texas (PRWEB) February 04, 2013
American Parks Company recently joined forces with Prestonwood Baptist Church North, to complete a playground project for their preschool facility in Prosper, Texas. Through collaboration with the church staff, American Parks Company designed age-appropriate playground equipment to accommodate young children. The project was completed in August as part of a large scale expansion of the north campus.
Prestonwood North started with about 40 people meeting at a Prosper house in January 2006. Then it expanded to home Bible study groups and continued to grow until people were meeting at Prosper High. Now their new campus is on 127 acres just north of Frisco near the Dallas North Tollway extension.
The new playground equipment featured at Prestonwood Baptist Church includes a composite play structure designed to accommodate children ranging in age from 2 through 5. Also featured is a circular concrete tricycle track with various "road" signs, a "gas station" and an arched bridge along the path. The project was completed with the utmost safety in mind including recycled rubber nuggets for surfacing under and around the play equipment as well as a solar shade structure covering the entire area to protect the little ones from the Texas sun.
Playground equipment provides children of all ages with countless benefits. Properly configured playgrounds can play a role in learning and development through imaginative play, create great places for social interaction and provide a fun way to get physical exercise and develop major muscle groups.
According to a recent study released by The Shasta Children and Families First Commission (SCFFC), "Playgrounds provide crucial and vital opportunities for children to play. There is substantial research showing the clear link between play and brain development, motor-skills, and social capabilities. All learning—emotional, social, motor and cognitive—is accelerated, facilitated, and fueled by the pleasure of play. Playgrounds that promote different types of play are vital for a child’s cognitive, emotional, physical, and social development."
American Parks Company President and CEO Martin Chad McNeill stated, "Prestonwood Baptist Church plays a vital leadership role to this community and the people of Prosper and beyond, and we are honored to have been selected to provide the playground equipment for their new facility. We are proud to support our local churches by providing safe and fun playgrounds for their children."
