Shelburne, Ontario Receives New Playground


Shelburne, Ontario received a new community playground that features a design put together by Play N Park Recreation. The playground is a National Demonstration Site, built with best practices in design that encourage physical activity.

Jim Moss, the Town’s Director of Development and Operations, commented on his experience throughout the project. Here is what he had to say:

“Park N Play design was contacted in early 2018 by the Town of Shelburne to participate in a Request For Proposal (RFP) for the creation of a new community park within a new subdivision development in town. The residents of Shelburne were polled for their input to see what features they would most like to see in a new park.”

“Park N Play Design was the successful candidate for the project and quickly set to work to keep with the Town timelines to incorporate and design the public’s criteria into the park area. At the construction stage almost immediately, the project ran into an unforeseen problem with substandard subbase material to build the new park on. Park N Play took the delay to remove and replace more than 4500 cubic meters of material in stride and still managed to finish the park within the anticipated timeframe in the fall of 2018.”

He added that the finished product is one of the best parks in town, and that the community feedback echoes that same sentiment.

Mr. Moss said, “From the Town’s hassle-free experience with this project, I would not hesitate to highly recommend Bob and his crew at Park N Play for any park design and play structure construction that you may be considering to undertake.”
