Creating Playful Pathways

Experience PlayTrails

PlayTrails combines playground equipment with nature trails to create a one-of-a-kind outdoor experience for children and families. Play activities are grouped by theme (i.e. ants, bees, trees, or leaves) and installed in 'play pockets' for families to explore as they walk along a path or trail.


Design Your Own Playful Path

PlayTrails can be configured to work with new or existing paths, trails, or greenways. Learn more with the Pathways for Play design guide.
