The "Rhyme 'n Reason" commercial play structure from American Parks Company

American Parks Company was eager to help their neighbors in the McKinney Housing Authority because their entire staff takes joy in actually seeing the results of their labor... kids enjoying playground equipment.

The McKinney Housing Authority recently looked to their business neighbors in American Parks Company to help them source, select, and install new commercial playground equipment for their facilities and neighborhood.

The mission of the McKinney Housing Authority is to serve the housing needs of low to moderate income families in the authority's jurisdiction. They do so by increasing the availability of decent, safe and affordable housing in the community, ensuring equal opportunity in housing, enhancing the self-suffiency of the families they serve, and improving both economic viability and quality of life to the community.

With the help of the playground specialists at American Parks Company, the authority chose the "Rhyme 'n Reason" commercial play structure. The play structure is the result of years of child development research commisioned by American Parks Company's manufacturing group. The variety of activities and their physical and cognitive benefits are engineered with children ages 2 to 12 years old in mind.

The "Rhyme 'n Reason" is designed to entertain at most 40 children simultaneously. It features 3 different slides, one of which encourages socialization by promoting competition as a side-by-side race to the bottom; and they're all equally fun in their own right. The playground structure also houses 3 climbing activities to improve physical fitness and challenge the bodies of the young children. There is also a Playwheel component which inspires imaginative play; children can think of the entire play structure as a ship they must navigate, or some other vehicle at their command.

American Parks Company was eager to help their neighbors in the McKinney Housing Authority because their entire staff takes joy in actually seeing the results of their labor. Getting to see kids actually enjoy their products reinvigorates them in their work providing and installing commercial playground equipment nationwide. And now they get to see that occur within their own business community.

So too, the McKinney Housing Authority now can see that a part of their mission — improving quality of life in the community — is continually carried out with each family that has the ability to utilize the new playground.
