City of Manor's new swing set and commercial play structure from American Parks Company

The 'Jumping Jack' play structure was selected because it features seven play activities designed for children ages 2 to 12 years old in one structure.

When the City of Manor (TX) needed some help sourcing commercial playground equipment for their Jennie Lane Community Park project, they got in touch with the specialists at American Parks Company. The City held their Ribbon Cutting ceremony on July 10th, 2015.

The City of Manor is located just 8 miles east of Intersate 35 between Austin and Round Rock in Central Texas. The City strives to promote community spirit through the preservation of its unique character and heritage, while fostering a dynamic economic environment.

The team at American Parks Company worked with the City to determine which playground products would best suit the children of the neighborhood, provide the most lasting value to the community, and would work with the City's budget. Together, they decided on the "Jumping Jack" commercial play structure, a two-bay Arched Swing Set, and a "Speedy Spinner" merry-go-round, as well as plenty of landscaping timbers and engineered wood fiber safety surfacing material to reduce risk of injuries.

The "Jumping Jack" play structure was selected because it features seven play activities designed for children ages 2 to 12 years old in one structure. Many times, playgrounds are configured to suit the 2-5 age range, or the 5-12 age range. American Parks Company offers structures that suit both ranges so organizations save money buying one structure instead of two.

The playground's activities promote fun, physical fitness, imaginative play, and outdoor learning. It includes two slides at different heights suitable to the two different age groups, as well as an Arch Climber, Vertical Access Ladder, Leg Lift, Bench Seat, Moon Phase Panel, and a transfer station for ADA accessibility.

Combined with the swing set and merry-go-round, the play structure that the American Parks Company team provided and installed will create an exciting, long-lasting community hot-spot that residents will be able to enjoy for years and years to come.
