Like many businesses, what has become Playground World started out as something totally different. Back in 1990 we were a company selling electronic fences to help people keep their pets from leaving home. We had one location, and we were pleased to offer our customers an excellent product with a great service team to support installation. Increasingly, families were inquiring about high quality play sets. We began researching what was available, and after thorough research, decided to only become a Redwood and Cedar playset dealership. Now Playground World serves North Ohio, Michigan and Western Pennsylvania as an exclusive Woodplay and Playground One distributor as well as Springfree Trampolines, Goalsetter & Goalrilla adjustable basketball goals, Flexcourt, and Rubber Surfacing products.
Playground World, Inc. loves the opportunity to give back to the communities where we live and work in. Our Community Outreach Program focuses on employee engagement and the organizations that mean the most to our employees.
Ways we accomplish this:
Charitable Play: Eight years ago, the late F. Dave Williams started a program called “Donate to Play” at our Play Zone West location. We now offer this fun with a purpose play at all our indoor Play Zones. Stop in and enjoy the fun for only $1.00 per child. Charitable Play hours vary by play zone please check the locations party page for availability.
