Founded in 1994 by a frustrated architect looking to buy a play structure for his backyard, PDPlay was born when a local community center director saw the incredible play structure the architect designed and built by hand in his backyard. The community center director encouraged him to build something similar for the city. Originally building play structures out of wood, eventually, the company discovered recycled plastic was a much better material as it was more durable and sustainable than wood. From there the company started to design and manufacture a line of site amenities and outdoor furnishings as well as outdoor fitness equipment from recycled plastic. All recycled plastic products are proudly designed and manufactured here in the USA.
As the company grew more successful it began working with other playground manufacturers that offered complementary products so it could be a turnkey supplier of playground solutions to its customers. Offering playground design, manufacturing, product sourcing, and installation, PDPlay quickly built a reputation for reliability and scalability landing large public works contracts with local municipalities as well as government agencies across the country and internationally.
Today the company works with a variety of customers including the various branches of the U.S. armed services, countless municipalities, school districts, and park districts, HOAs, apartment building owners, property management companies, real estate developers and builders, general contractors, child care facilities and churches to name the most common group of customers. All products we make or resell are fully compliant with CPSC and ASTM guidelines for commercial playground equipment, outdoor fitness equipment, and playground safety surfacing. We look forward to working with you on your next playground project.
