So many playgrounds today look like the same old thing. Today's children are tired of walking up the same set of stairs onto the same plastic coated decks with the same steel posts, climbing the same climbers and playing with the same plastic panels...

A playground from Themed Concepts is more than posts, decks, sticks and stones – it's a living, breathing, world of imagination!

Since 1971, Themed Concepts' management team has been involved in the theming industry, installing projects all over the world. We started our specialty-construction careers in the early 1970's creating stamped and colored concrete flat-work. In the process of mastering that technology, our team manufactured and patented the plastic imprinting tools that applied texture, in addition to color and pattern, to concrete surfaces.

In 1976, as the Minnesota Zoo was being constructed, they contacted us to assist them in developing exhibits with more realistic environments involving simulated rocks and trees. Intrigued by the request, our team developed, manufactured and installed what is believed to be the first GFRC (glass-fiber-reinforced-concrete) rock-work in the world for this project using our own developed system for forming and application. Since the successful completion of that first GFRC installation, we've since installed several thousand themed environments and playgrounds all over the world – in public and private parks, schools, zoos, aquariums, amusement parks, resorts, restaurants and parks.

  • The ALL NEW TreeLine™ play series from Themed Concepts™ allows our customers to achieve the same top quality, hand sculpted product we're known for, while maintaining a BUDGET FRIENDLY price tag!
