Dominica Recreation ProductsYour Local Playground Equipment Experts in Florida, Georgia, and Tennessee
Dick Dominica, a former school teacher and Executive Director of Parks and Recreation in New Jersey, started Dominica Recreation Products, Inc. in 1968. He saw firsthand how confusing it can be to order park and playground equipment, and wanted to be able to offer the customer an easier way, seeing them through the process from order to installation. Dominica Recreation was formed to offer a sales and service delivery system unlike any in the industry.
That philosophy paid off and after serving New Jersey for 12 years, he decided to move the family and company to Longwood, Florida. The original staff of 2 has grown to 18 and they have been serving customers for over 44 years with their unique teamwork approach.
Your Local Playground Equipment Experts
Serving Florida, Georgia, and Tennessee
Rob Dominica – President. I was literally born into the playground industry. After earning my MBA from Stetson University, I joined my father at DRP in 1995. Besides running the business end of the business, I thoroughly enjoy designing special projects from the ground up. That’s the fun part of my job and I always look forward to it. One of my other favorites? Joining in on community builds. Getting in the mud and building a playground with our installers and volunteers from the local community always makes me feel good and reminds me of why we do what we do. It’s such a day of camaraderie and cooperation and when we’re done, there’s a brand new and exciting playground for the kids. 800-432-0162 ext. 113 firstname.lastname@example.org
Gina Wilson – Vice President. A graduate of Lock Haven University in 1992 in the field of Finance and Economics, I joined DRP in 1994 as a temp. You name it and I’ve done it: filing, receptionist, office manager, customer service, order placement, event coordinator, marketing, bids, proposals, CAD design, and lots of other things. As the VP, I’m also the Senior Project Manager in which I evaluate all new RFPs and projects. My favorite thing is designing an incredible playground based on the customer’s vision and pushing the limits of that dynamic between budget and awesome. 800-432-0162 ext. 101 email@example.com
Rob Wilson, CPSI – Sales and Marketing Manager (SaMM). Some say I wield wisdom, insight, and humor with the resourcefulness of Die Hard’s John McClane and my results are nothing short of Yippee-Ki-Yay. All we know is … I'm called the SaMM.
I graduated from Lock Haven University in 1992 in the Recreation/Fitness Management field and honed my skills in the commercial fitness equipment industry. Twenty years of developing business throughout the western hemisphere ... well the United States, the eastern part, and some of the Caribbean. I joined DRP in 2009 and lead our team of Territory Managers throughout Florida, Georgia, and Tennessee. I also handle all things marketing.
Never take yourself too seriously, because play is essential to life. 800-432-0162 ext. 104 firstname.lastname@example.org
Pat Duberke – Customer Service. I’ve been with DRP for sixteen years and take care of our customers in all situations dealing with order placement, warranty, and parts. 800-432-0162 ext. 102 email@example.com
Jennifer Cassidy – Customer Service. I have been with Dominica Recreation Products for 9 years! Previous to joining the Team, I worked in the hospitality industry serving, bartending, and management. I have lived in Florida most of my life and enjoy visiting our wonderful beaches, boating with friends on the St. Johns River, and just being outdoors and enjoying our great weather. Food and cooking are a huge passion of mine, and I often engage myself in long discussions about ingredients, recipes, and trying new things with fellow foodies. I like reading books, any and all kinds. I have a love/hate relationship with exercising, and my preference is to run. Participating in races and mud runs are exciting to me! Above all, my greatest joy is being a mommy to my beautiful and exuberant 9 year old daughter and a sassy, compulsively eating guinea pig named Carly. 800-432-0162 ext. 105 firstname.lastname@example.org
Cindy Robinson – Project Manager. I've been with the DRP Family since 2007 designing playgrounds through CAD design work and producing winning proposal packages for our sales professionals. I also produce full color renderings of those designs to provide our customers with a clear image of what their project will look like when completed.
I try not to take things and myself too seriously, and find the fun in most situations. I'm blessed to be able to positively influence and encourage children to be themselves, play, learn, and grow through design. Seeing life through a child's eyes helps puts perspective on how precious life is. NPSI Certified. 800-432-0162 ext. 110 email@example.com
JoEllen Green – Bids & Contracts Administrator. Worked in the construction industry for 32 years prior to joining the team at DRP in 2011. My title pretty much says it all; I handle all bids and contracts.
I’m a native Floridian and married to a native Floridian. Enjoy reading, music, crafting and baking and old movies. You know, the classics like Gone with the Wind and Psycho. I love the old south and especially the beaches from Ft. Walton to Pensacola and St. Augustine. I’m not a world traveler and haven't painted a masterpiece yet, but then Grandma Moses was how old before she did. 800-432-0162 ext. 109 firstname.lastname@example.org
Kelly Pullam – Product Specialist. I started my journey with DRP in 2012, and absolutely love it. Never did I think I would find my "Home away from Home."

Sarah Skiffington – Administrative Assistant. “The unexamined life is not worth living.” - Socrates
I leave my house every morning with a sense of purpose ready to conquer the world. This might have something to do with my love of coffee. Regardless, I bring that get up and go get-em attitude to the DRP Family. I have nine years of Customer Service, Administrative Assistant and Managerial experience. I have worked in all different types of industries but am excited to be working for a company that makes playground dreams a reality.
I whole heartedly agree that “play is essential to life”, after all I am a big kid at heart. As a native Floridian, most of my hobbies revolve around being outside. Camping, kayaking, swimming and relaxing in the sun are a few things I enjoy doing when I’m not in the office. When I am at DRP, I am the voice you will most likely hear first to help you or direct you to the proper place. 800-432-0162 ext. 103 Sarahs@gametime.com

Dennis Deal – Georgia Sales Professional, serving all of West Georgia for Dominica Recreation Products and GameTime. I am a graduate of Georgia Southern University where I earned a B.S. degree in Public Recreation Administration. I began my playground career in 1990 and have now proudly represented GameTime for over thirteen years. It is truly an honor to be associated with such fine organizations but the true joy comes from the opportunity every day to develop and design playgrounds that help impact children’s lives all over the state of Georgia. As you can see from my picture I not only sell playgrounds but from time to time enjoy them.
I have one quick story from a number of years ago. I was on the jobsite for a new playground at an elementary school. As I was walking around the school to the playground site under construction I felt a tug on my shirt. I turned around and standing there was little boy with big rimmed glasses staring up at me. He smiled and asked, “Mr. playground man when is our playground going to be ready?” That folks is why I get up in the morning and why I do what I do. 800-432-0162 ext. 306 email@example.com
