About Us



Taking Play Personally

I have fond memories of play. Everyone does. For me, it resonates with the memory of coming home from school, putting on old jeans, and taking off on my bike to discover new adventures. I’ve never outgrown the thrill and awe of the power of play.

A number of experts, educators, and families agree—unstructured outdoor play helps kids grow physically, emotionally, socially and cognitively. The benefits last a lifetime.

The research affirms our commitment to creating great play. It’s a commitment shared by all of us at Playworld. And it’s simple: create meaningful, unstructured play opportunities for today’s children.

The playground is the last sacred space where kids can play and parents can feel comfortable. We’ve got to give them the opportunity to discover their childhood on their own terms.


From our fabricators and designers in Pennsylvania throughout our worldwide network of distributors, the entire team understands our mission. We’re not just making playground equipment. We’re in the kid–empowering, confidence–building, friendship–making, health–promoting, community-strengthening business.

For more than forty years, we’ve collaborated with people like you to create great play opportunities. We consider it a privilege, and a responsibility. Thanks for your interest in Playworld, and for all you do to promote play!
