Playgrounds are a common destination for summer fun time. Because kids often spend hours climbing on playgrounds at their schools and local parks, it is important to practice safety. One of the main hazards to consider is amplified summer heat. Playgrounds are frequently made of heat-absorbent material, so equipping them with shade and shelter additions increases safety. Check out the variety of playground shelters and shades available at American Playground Company of Kansas City!


When it comes to outdoor park amenities and furniture, American Playground Company of Kansas City is unsurpassed. From basic installations to luxurious amenities – from park benches to bike racks – our inventory is massive, and our staff is trained to handle playground installation projects of all kinds.



Playgrounds often feature or are located close to sporting areas such as swing sets, basketball courts, and baseball fields. In addition to play equipment, American Playground Company of Kansas City sells recreational products such as basketball hoops, batting cages, benches, bleachers, nets, and goalposts.


According to the Consumer Product Safety Commission, 3 out of every 4 playground-related injuries result from falls. For this reason, American Playground Company stresses the importance of proper surfacing on playgrounds in Kansas City. While the occasional fall is unavoidable, the appropriate surfacing can go a long way in reducing/lessening injuries.


Freestanding equipment constitutes parts of a recreational area that are detached from the playground itself. Here at American Playground Company of Kansas City, we sell a variety of freestanding elements including ball pits, swing sets, and spinning play equipment. All of these are useful for filling unused space and increasing activity at your playground!


One of the top attractions of playgrounds in Kansas City is that, in addition to keeping kids occupied, they encourage exercise. To help promote this benefit, American Playground Company sells an assortment of fitness equipment – from curl stations to pull bars to cardio walkers. The great thing about fitness equipment is that it’s not limited to kids. Adults can use it, too – keeping themselves occupied while watching over their children.


American Playground Company of Kansas City believes that people of all backgrounds and abilities should be able to participate in the playground experience together. Inclusive play also benefits communities, allowing a diverse demographic of children to have fun and grow up together. American Playground Company’s inclusive elements include not only diverse playground equipment but also ramps, quartets, and sand spots.


Pets are an integral part of the family fun time experience. For this reason, American Playground Company of Kansas City sells dog park equipment ideal for playgrounds, apartment complexes, parks, etc. The equipment we sell and install includes balance planks, hurdles, and multi-level steps. Now your pooch can have fun, too, when you take them with your children to the playground!
