Building a brand-new playground takes a lot of time and money; unfortunately, more often than not, it’s time and money that schools, churches, neighborhoods and communities don’t have. There are several ways to get funding to build a new playground – donations, fundraisers, grants, etc. – but before you commit all that time and effort, make sure a new playground is what you really need.

Earlier this year, Miracle Recreation and webuildfun, inc. had the pleasure of teaming up with the City of Bedford on two really great projects. The City of Bedford has a strong commitment to its citizens, and for this reason it makes a point to update parks and equipment on an ongoing basis. This year, the city wanted to update the playgrounds at Harris Ryals Park and Stormie Jones Park, with an emphasis on accessibility.
Shade structures provide valuable shelter for any outdoor area – playgrounds, parks, stadiums, parking lots, sports courts and fields, school courtyards and more. They are an easy thing to be cut from the budget because they are not thought to be a necessity, but this is a mistake! The benefits of adding a shade structure to your outdoor area far outweigh the cost.
