Playworld works with three NFL teams on playground projects

From Playground magazine:

Playworld, a leading manufacturer of imaginative playground and fitness equipment, announced in late September several playground projects that were made possible because of the support from three NFL teams: the Atlanta Falcons, Cleveland Browns and Philadelphia Eagles.

On May 5 of last year, the Atlanta Falcons helped to build a playground at 595 Magnolia Street, adjacent to the Falcons stadium. This new playground demonstrates the team’s long-standing commitment to bring the benefits of play to younger fans in the community.

Several years ago, Playworld’ began its relationship with the Falcons through Park Pride, a Green Space Advocacy group. Arthur Blank, the owner of the Falcons and co-founder of The Home Depot, is a major donor to the organization. Thanks to the support of Park Pride, Arthur Blank and members of the Atlanta Falcons, enough money was donated to build a new playground next to the bright lights of the Georgia Dome.

New playgrounds have been built throughout Ohio because of support from the Cleveland Browns. This past spring, the team purchased play and fitness equipment from PlayWorld Systems to create its “Browns’ FitnessZones.” The team also participates in the “Hometown Huddle,” a nationwide platform for promoting outdoor fitness, in the fall.
