Playgrounds are a common destination for summer fun time, so be mindful of potential hazards when the temperature’s up.

According to the Consumer Product Safety Commission, 3 out of 4 playground accidents result from falls. Now, the occasional tumble is unavoidable due to playground activity largely consisting of kids running around and climbing. However, you can reduce and lessen injuries by installing the right surfacing. As the city’s #1 contractor, American Playground Company of Cedar Rapids recommends rubber surfaces and artificial turf.


Freestanding elements consist of equipment technically detached from a playground but nonetheless inclusive to the recreational area of which the playground is a part.

As the top contractor in Cedar Rapids, American Playground Company sells only freestanding elements of the highest quality.
