Landscape Structures Inc. was founded in 1971 by Barb and Steve King, and is headquartered in Delano, Minn. The leading commercial playground equipment manufacturer in the world, Landscape Structures currently has more than 300 employees and a global network of 200 playground consultants who are all singularly committed to creating better playgrounds and a better world. The employee-owned company has a long, rich history of creating innovative products with incredible safety features and exciting play experiences for children of all abilities.

Interestingly, Landscape Structures began its history of innovation even before its doors opened for business. In 1967, Steve King created a revolutionary concept called continuous play for his final thesis project at Iowa State University. With continuous play, kids can move from playground component to playground component without touching the ground. This new type of design saved space while encouraging independent decision-making and interaction among kids, which is an important ingredient in a child's development.

Through the years, Landscape Structures has continued to introduce other pioneering innovations including the first post and clamp-based playsystem known as PlayBooster®, the first gyroscopic playsystem called Evos® and HealthBeat®, the first gym-quality outdoor fitness system. Furthermore, Landscape Structures also has been at the forefront of creating inclusive playground equipment for children of all abilities. In addition to inclusive playground components, Landscape Structures strives to create entire inclusive play environments to welcome children and families of all abilities to play, learn and grow together.

    Good things start on the playground. That chance moment when kids from anywhere get together just to be kids. To free their spirits, their bodies, their minds. To play. And through play, kids show persistence, leadership, competition, bravery, support, empathy. They show us who they will become as adults. They show us as adults, who we should be now. Yes, good things start on the playground and last a lifetime. Find inspiration for your next playground design.

  • Keep your cool with SkyWays™ Shade Products from Landscape Structures. Designed to meet the demands of both heat and sun, SkyWays shades kids and families from up to 97 percent of harmful UV rays and keeps structures as much as 30-degrees cooler. They are perfect for the playground and anywhere a large amount of shade coverage is needed—at the ball field, on the beach, in a parking lot and much more.

  • Smart Play®: Nook and Loft

    This smart duo will take kids from early crawling exploration on up to active climbing and social play. Thatís because Smart Play®: Nook is for kids ages 6 to 23 months, and Smart Play®: Loft is for kids ages 2 to 5 years. Together, they span a critical period of childhood development, making them ideal for childcare, early learning centers and neighborhood playgrounds.

  • Designed for kids ages 5 to 12, Smart Play: Venti packs 20 exciting activities into its compact size. Nets, slides, belts and climbers provide challenges that promote physical development and strategic thinking, while also creating hangouts where kids can take a break and connect with others. Even better, the compact size requires less space and surfacing material than typical playgrounds, resulting in a lower total investment.

  • Because of the woodland setting at Watkins Regional Park with its 80-foot tall mature trees, landscape architects at Maryland-National Capital Park and Planning Commission knew they had the perfect storybook setting for an imaginative playground. They used the book, The Wonderful Wizard of Oz, by L. Frank Baum for inspiration and collaborated with designers at Landscape Structures to create play areas based on the different stages of the story.
