All of our research, engineering and product development are focused on developing the body, mind and imagination of every child. Every slide, stair, ladder and swing is designed to meet the specific needs of the site where it will be installed, and the people who will play there. Our playgrounds are built for fun, inclusiveness, and to help build great communities. We help to bring the right players together by creating projects and programs that appeal to corporate, nonprofit and government partners.

SOARHigh Among The Tree Branches ANDDISCOVERNATURAL WONDERS Playgrounds:Thoughtful design. We work closely with landscape architects to bring their vision to life. 2 5. The city of Arlington,Texas wanted to design a play space that combined natural elements with a manufactured playground.Working with landscape architects John Fain, ASLA, LEED, AP and Gary Kutilek, R.L.A. GameTime designed the right mix of custom play sculptures and standard PowerScape playground equipment to create a fun, unique playscape that complemented the natural environment. Our PlayWorx custom play division designed a giant tree with themed slides and ladders, as well as custom tree, rock and vine climbers that mimic the look of the natural forest beyond the playground.We took one look at that forest and decided there had to be a way for children to explore it. By designing a new net tunnel system, we elevated the play space and made it possible for children to venture into the tree canopy. Thoughtful design is the cornerstone of every project we develop and it is the difference between a regular playground and an extraordinary play experience. By working with community leaders and landscape architects, we were able to design a signature destination playground that is unlike anything on (or above) Earth. The one-of-a-kind net tunnel system allows children to leave the play structure and explore the tree canopy above the playground. Thoughtfully designed site lines allow parents to watch their children play no matter where their exploration takes them. River Legacy Park, Arlington, TX 3 6. EVERYc h i l d h a s t h e r i g h t t o PLAYWITH THEIR PEERS AS EQUALS GameTime constructed one of the first commercially available inclusive playground of its kind in Cleveland, Tennessee.The ramped design and ground level activities was a project of the Cleveland Civitan Club and served the community and nearby school for more than 30 years. As the community grew, and as ADA guidelines changed, it became apparent that a new playground was needed. Once again, the Cleveland Civitan Club turned to GameTime to design an inclusive playground that would provide a safe and fun environment for children of all abilities. GameTime designed a playground with ramps throughout the play system so that children using mobility devices could explore the play space alongside their peers.We added ground level and accessible, elevated activities like interactive panels and musical instruments that encourage cooperative play.We utilized every possible space on the playground. There is an overhead ladder beneath the Sky Bridge. Beneath the decks are seats, storefront panels and more so that no space is wasted. The result is a playground that continues to provide inclusive play opportunities in a community that has long understood and embraced the idea that all children have a right to play. Inclusive Community, Cleveland, TN Communities:Improve your world. Inclusive playgrounds bring communities closer together. 4 7. The Zero-G Swing Seat is specifically designed for children with low muscle tone and diminished upper body strength,securing them in an upright position as they swing alongside their peers. Ramps and hand rails throughout the structure make the playground system accessible for children in mobility devices. Lekotek, the nations central source on inclusive play products, conducted independent evaluations of GameTime playgrounds and awarded the industrys first AblePlay ratings to many of our products. Look for the AblePlay rating throughout our catalog. 5 8. GFRC climbers like these brown bears provide a fun way to access the play system. EXPLOREthe beauty and wonder of a communitys H E R I TA G E Playgrounds:Thoughtful design. Designing play spaces that hearken back to a communitys historic days. 6 9. Based on a roller coaster that was at this site in the early 1900s,the climbers and slides that connect these decks are a beautiful reminder of days gone by. The city of Edmonton wanted a playground at Borden Park that was innovative and reflective of the natural and historic surroundings. GameTime created three distinctive play areas that promoted exploration and discovery for children of all ages and abilities: a treetop village, a zoo and a roller coaster. The zoo includes GFRC sculptured brown bear climbers and decorative elements like bee hives and monkeys. The treetop village features enormous, exquisitely detailed trees that provide areas of climbing and exploration. The centerpiece of the playground is the roller coaster. Modeled after a historic coaster from a bygone era, it features standard climbers and slides embellished with custom GFRC elements and roof structures. Borden Park, Edmonton, Alberta 7 10. FITNESSand fun come together on a N AT U R E - I N S P I R E D PLAY TRAIL Led by Dr.Adam Bright and 45 surgeons from the Florida Orthopedic Society,the Laurel Park Play and Fitness Trail is a play destination for children,and adults,of all ages. At the head of the trail is a large playground structure with slides,climbers and more.Along the trail are fitness and play pockets designed to encourage children and families to stop for a moment of fitness and fun.Supported by Sarasota County Parks and Recreation and the Gulf Coast Community Foundation,the playground and trail were designed by GameTime and installed by dozens of volunteers committed to reversing the trend of childhood obesity.Working together,the community is taking real steps to bring families together in a natural setting and enrich their lives through play.

Watch a video about El Sereno Park at What was once an eyesore is now a beautiful NatureGrounds playground and fitness park.The community of El Sereno,a suburb of Los Angeles, worked with city leaders,GameTime, PlayCore,NRPA and the Trust for Public Land to create a playspace that combines a PowerScape play system with iTrack fitness equipment.Hundreds of volunteers turned out to help with the construction of the project and hundreds more arrived for the groundbreaking by Mayor Antonio R.Villaraigosa. By bringing together the right civic,corporate and community partners,GameTime is enriching communities through play. El Sereno Park, Los Angeles, CA 11 14. CUSTOMPlayscape that Allows INCLUSIVE PLAY FOR ALL When the city of Wauwetosa announced the development of a custom-themed, inclusive playground, accessibility advocate Damian Buchman was skeptical. After years of visiting playgrounds with areas of accessibility that left much of the playscape off limits to people with disabilities, Damian was very pleased with a truly inclusive playground at Hart Park. I was thrilled to see it was clearly universally accessible all the way to the highest level, said Buchman. Most playgrounds are only accessible to certain points and then kids have to stop while their friends go on, but you can explore this playground from top to bottom. Making a playground that was fully inclusive that integrated the communitys geography and heritage was the result of working with accomplished landscape architect Ed Haydin. Haydin and GameTime created woodland play areas for preschool and school-aged children with custom play sculptures that drew from the areas history, including a partially dug out canoe, log climbers, an eagles nest and more. By working with a landscape architect who understood the past, and a community who has a vision for the future, GameTime created a playground that is an inclusive oasis for children and adults of all abilities.

PlayWorxCustomDesigns 15 Designing a World of Possibilities We begin every PlayWorx project with a thoughtful and careful design process that helps ensure that community leaders and key stakeholders are included in every step of the playspace development.

We created roofs and barriers from composite wood boards.The look is reminiscent of a time when children gathered spare lumber and built treehouses and forts by themselves. We added themed GFRC (glass fiber reinforced concrete) elements on and around the structure to add more play value and to further integrate the play system with the surroundings. The various shapes and sizes of the climbers, slides and bridges create a uniquely imaginative play experience.
