PROBLEM:
Our basketball equipment always seems to be rusty, tilting and broken. How can we find something longer-lasting?

SOLUTION:
The Bison UltimateTM Basketball System withstands the toughest playground and weather conditions. The 6-inch-square pole of 3/16-inch wall tubular steel buries 48 inches deep. Bison has actually hung a Volkswagen from this pole, proving its durability. Double-rim goal has an unconditional lifetime replacement warranty. Unconditional lifetime warranty covers complete system with aluminum backboard/galvanized pole/galvanized goal for coastal areas and any UltimateTM with unbreakable clear polycarbonate backboard.

PROBLEM:
In our city near the ocean, the "salt air" corrodes steel products. We're looking for products that will last in this environment.

SOLUTION:
The LR1161 Litter receptacle manufactured by Doty & Sons Concrete Products Inc. contains a non-corrosive concrete base, plastic liner and heavy-duty plastic dome top. The dome locks to the concrete using a bayonet-style locking method. Doty & Sons Concrete Products Inc. also manufactures other products with stainless-steel components that resist harsh salt air environments.

PROBLEM:
It's a beautiful day, and the children want to get outside and play, but it's tough to match 40 different bottles of sunscreen to 40 children.

SOLUTION:
Have all of the children line up in front of Rocky Mountain Sunscreen's pump dispensing system, apply and send them out to play. No more digging through boxes of several different sunscreen bottles with each child's name. Spend more time with the children outside instead of chasing sunscreen bottles.

PROBLEM:
Our temporary umbrellas are flimsy, offer shade only part of the day and can't handle high winds.

SOLUTION:
Parasol's innovative SundialTM solves several shade problems at once. The Sundial's permanent, pivoting offset umbrella is engineered to withstand high winds even with the top on. The top manually pivots a full 360 degrees, locking into eight positions so tables or benches beneath get a full day's worth of protective and delightfully colored shade.

PROBLEM:
Summit Academy in Amherst, N.Y., which caters to more than 300 students with developmental disabilities, needed to create a safe, stimulating playground.

SOLUTION:
Surface America suggested its PlayBoundTM Poured-in-Place system, which features a dual-density construction that provides a safe place for children of all abilities to play. The project resulted in a playground that provides visual, physical and tactile experiences for a wide variety of students. Surface America's systems are easily customized to meet the safety, design and aesthetic requirements of any playground.

PROBLEM:
Our park benches are poorly designed, rusty and uncomfortable.

SOLUTION:
It seems that many park benches are not designed to be aesthetically pleasing or comfortable to sit on for any extended period of time. Loll has created a line of Cityscape benches that will provide your rest-deserving citizens a pleasing and comfortable place to relax. The Cityscape Series contains 100 percent recycled materials and is available in multiple color options.

PROBLEM:
We want to attract campers and other patrons with durable, innovative and attractive alternatives to tents and cabins.

SOLUTION:
Because of their high quality, durability and comfort, Pacific Yurts have become a popular option in many park and recreation areas. They are attractive, have a low environmental impact and because of their color scheme and low profile, they blend in with natural surroundings. State parks across the country have used Pacific Yurts to blend in with natural surroundings.
