Church Playground Equipment & Ideas
Churches play many important roles within a community. One of those roles is as a place for families to gather and spend quality time together. Given that churches often host people of all ages—from the very young to the very old—it’s important that their facilities are designed for such duty. To cater to the younger set, the inclusion of a playground is a great choice. Discover high quality church playground equipment at American Swing, and learn more about the playground design process below.
Managing A Budget
Perhaps the first thing you will need to think about when planning a church playground project is funding. Most churches don’t have huge reserve funding sources available for such tasks, so you may need to take up a special collection for the job. And, of course, picking out equipment that provides great value for the money is going to be important, as you strive to make the most of the money you do have available.
At American Swing, we strive to offer our church playground equipment at affordable prices, without sacrificing on quality. We hope you can find everything you need to meet your budget. If you need assistance finding the right pieces, don’t hesitate to contact us.

Getting The Most From Your Space
Early in the planning process, you’ll want to analyze the amount of space you have available for your playground. If you have plenty of room to build, you can consider bigger pieces of equipment like long slides and large swing sets. Those with less room to work with will need to stick to compact play structures in order to maximize the usefulness of the area.
Serve The Little Ones
It’s pretty easy to find church playground equipment that will be fun and exciting for kids in the grade school age range. However, you want to make sure that younger children also have a spot on the playground to have fun in a safe environment.
This comes down to picking the right pieces of equipment and placing them where they will be easy to access for little ones. Not only will the little kids have fun playing in the space, but their parents will appreciate the presence of equipment that is able to accommodate children of various ages. Here are some equipment options including tot seats and riders that are perfect for the little ones:
Invest In Durability
While it’s obviously necessary to stay within your budget for the job, you do want to invest in equipment that can be expected to hold up over the long run. If you buy cheap equipment, you shouldn’t be surprised when that gear starts to fall apart in short order.
The cost savings you enjoy upfront when buying low-cost playground equipment will quickly be lost when you need to spend money on repairs or replacement equipment only a short time after the initial installation. It’s likely that your church playground is going to see plenty of action week after week, so make sure it is up to the challenge. To give you confidence in our products, American Swing offers a warranty guaranteeing all of our swing sets and playground equipment for one year.
