Xscape 2-5 is a new line of playground products specifically designed for preschool-age children. Each component is designed to build strength, develop coordination and bring early childhood education outdoors. There are no preset design limitations, so you can build an all-Xscape 2-5 system or link it to a traditional PowerScape 2-5 or PrimeTime 2-5 play structure. Xscape 2-5 also offers many fun, new freestanding components as well as freestanding "Imagination Centers." Imagination Centers are play houses, designed to encourage creative interaction among children and come in three styles: the Dramatic Play House, the Nature Discovery Play House or the Creative Arts Center.
The imaginative Tree House playstructure from Landscape Structures looks kid-engineered and offers endless hours of outdoor adventure. Kids will discover hidden forest friends, explore the tree’s life cycle with an Age Ring Tracing Panel, hold secret club meetings—or just hang out. Real trees were the inspiration behind the Discovery Tree Climb, the Tree Stump Transfer Module and the Log Steppers. Tough and durable Glass Fiber Reinforced Concrete (GFRC) provides the most realistic look and texture while offering playground-friendly durability. And the 100 percent post-consumer recycled planks with wood-grained texture highlight the built-by-kids theme.
