Getting ready to refurbish, replace or provide a new playground feature in your school or community?

We’ve got at least 3 reasons why you should consider InspiredPlay’s innovative designs for your next playground project.


Reason 1: All of our playgrounds are designed with our 6×6 PlayValue Matrix.

The formula combines 12 elements of physical and enriching play to help us calculate the best approach for each playground design we provide our clients. Once we’ve computed the possibilities for play, we choose the elements based on the community’s needs so that as many people as possible have access to the park.  Click here to learn more about our 6×6 Play Matrix Formula.


Reason 2: We believe play not only benefits the physical development of children, but also the mental and emotional well-being of children AND their caregivers.

Research has shown that children and their caregivers tend to be overall healthier and happier when they play together, so we design our playgrounds to support bonding moments through play. When communities play together social interactions increase, which releases the happy hormone, dopamine. Along with more feel-good moments happening more often, playgrounds help increase physical exercise, too. Wins all around!


Reason 3: Our goal is to be as inclusive as possible with all our playground designs.

Even if a playground is considered “accessible,” that doesn’t mean that every child is “included” in the fun. While most playgrounds settle for simply meeting minimum access standards, we strive to ensure that every child has access to our playgrounds, is able to equitably participate in as many activities as any other child, and is able to feel they fit in with their peers. Working together with the communities we serve to make parks more inclusive for all, young, old, and anywhere in between, means more families have access to play spaces that support their overall wellness.


When it’s all said and done, our top priority is making sure our clients are happy, healthy, and safe whenever they are enjoying our playground designs. Whether you’re feeling uncertain about how to approach a new playground project or overwhelmed by the possibilities, we’re here to help you discover more of the play inspirations you’re looking for.
