Ledic Realty knew that Country Place would be home to children of all ages with various capabilities, and that they'd be enriched by the type of well-designed playground equipment that American Parks Company offers.

When it came time to make improvements to the Country Place Apartments' facilities in Hebron, Kentucky, the property management team at Ledic Realty Company looked to American Parks Company for their expertise and guidance in providing commercial playground equipment to multifamily communities like theirs.

Country Place Apartments is tucked away in a beautiful suburban setting, offering everything you've come to expect in a modern living environment. They decided a playground would make a great addition to their existing amenities, which include a fitness center, walking trail, basketball court, picnic pavillion, computer center, and swimming pool.

American Parks Company helped them select two play structures, each designed for younger and older age groups, that would flank two sides of their existing swimming pool area. For children ages 2 to 5 years old, they selected the "Busy Bee" commercial play structure. For children ages 5 to 12 the "Word to the Wise" structure from APC was selected. Both structures each house 7 different play activities which are designed to enhance physical physical fitness, cognitive growth, and socialization, but with unique challenges for each age group.

The "Busy Bee" playground accommodates up to 20 children and features two slides: one for side-by-side races to promote group play, and one for independent play. The structure is also home to two activity panels; the Store Panel encourages imaginative play, while the Gear Panel introduces children to concepts of mechanics and action/reaction. An additional barrier panel contains a Playwheel to further promote imagination. These are all under the "Rosetta Roof," which not only shades the children, but has common phrases in four different languages to provide outdoor learning opportunities.

The "Word to the Wise" playground is engineered to entertain as many as 25 children, and also features two slide, but at a higher deck elevation for even more fun and adventure. To promote physical fitness and help older kids develop healthy habits, this play structure has 3 different climbing activities, including a Fireman's Pole, 90° Horizontal Hoop Ladder, and Apex Climbing attachment. The "Word to the Wise" is also home to a Playwheel for imaginative play. Both structures are even ADA accessible via Transfer Stations, so that everyone is included on the playground.

Ledic Realty knew that Country Place would be home to children of all ages with various capabilities, and that they'd be enriched by the type of well-designed playground equipment that American Parks Company offers. The additional amenities that these two play structures provide will be fun for many years to come.
