Playworld donates NEOS play structure to Milwaukee County Parks and Recreation
Playworld recently participated in the 2009 NRPA Congress and Exposition in Salt Lake City, Utah. During the events, Playworld gave away a NEOS 360, one of the company’s most innovative and interactive play structures, to Milwaukee County Parks and Recreation through a random drawing.
The Milwaukee County Parks and Recreation is providing the NEOS 360 to the Dr. Martin Luther Jr. Community Center. The community center offers adult and children fitness programs, youth development programs, leadership programs, fitness classes and education programs that benefit the entire community.
“The Milwaukee County Parks and Recreation feels fortunate to win the NEOS 360 and knows that the new play equipment will be put to great use,” said Sue Black, director of the Milwaukee County Parks System. “We are confident the NEOS 360 will properly support the center’s efforts in providing exercise, education and healthy alternatives to the community.”
“Playworld is thrilled to donate a NEOS 360 to such a deserving community center,” said Matt Miller, president of Playworld. “We feel strongly that play structures like the NEOS 360 can bring communities together in lasting, positive ways through the benefits of play.”
NEOS 360 is a unique product that combines electronic gaming with outdoor play. Its intriguing design – with interactive sound and buttons – provides an exhilarating new way to play outdoors. With multiple games to choose from, one or more players can record their scores, making NEOS fun and challenging while improving agility, balance, fitness, and social skills.
