When it comes to summer fun time, the neighborhood playground is a common destination. Of course, as venues for outdoor activities, playgrounds are regularly exposed to the heat of the sun—and the materials they’re made of tend to absorb the heat, making them hot to the touch. For this reason, it is highly recommended that you install your playground with shades and shelter fixtures. American Playground Company of Lincoln is the #1 local contractor for playground safety accessories.


American Playground Company of Lincoln is the #1 local contractor when it comes to site furnishings, accessories, and fixtures. No matter how simple or complex your needs – whether you want a series of park benches or an assortment of bicycle storage racks – the solution can be found in our massive inventory. What’s more, our team consists of trained professionals fully equipped to handle playground installation projects of all kinds.



American Playground Company of Lincoln sells and installs recreational sporting products such as batting cages, benches, bleachers, nets, goalposts, and basketball hoops. Playgrounds are frequently located close to sporting areas—if they don’t feature on-site sporting areas of their own—so having athletic equipment on hand makes your playground all the more diverse and inclusive.


The Consumer Product Safety Commission reports that 3 of every 4 playground accidents result from falls. Because the occasional fall is unavoidable during playtime, American Playground Company of Lincoln highly recommends the installation of proper surfacing. Rubber surfacing and artificial turf greatly reduces/lessens fall-related injuries.


Freestanding elements consist of equipment technically detached from a playground but nonetheless inclusive to the overall recreational area of which the playground is a part. As the #1 recreational equipment contractor in Lincoln, American Playground Company sells and installs ball pits, swing sets, spinning play equipment, etc. All of these are useful for filling playground space and boosting activity.


In addition to keeping children occupied, playgrounds stimulate athleticism and exercise. To help promote—and enhance—this second benefit, we at American Playground Company of Lincoln sell and install a variety of fitness equipment: curl stations, cardio walkers, pull bars, etc. Fitness equipment is also inclusive: adults can exercise either with their kids or while watching them play.


American Playground Company of Lincoln takes pride in installing equipment that allows for inclusive play—meaning, children of all abilities and backgrounds can participate in the fun. Beneficial for building community relations, inclusive play brings together not only children but their parents. The inclusive elements we sell include quartets, sand spots, ramps, and—of course—fully diverse playgrounds.


Here at American Playground Company of Lincoln, we recognize that pets are part of the family and family playtime. Dogs love to accompany their human companions to the park and have fun when they get there. For this reason, we encourage the installation of dog park equipment at playgrounds, parks, and apartment complexes. Now your pooch can enjoy hurdles, multi-level steps, and balance planks under the watchful eye of their owners.

The American Playground Company is proud to be working with Superior Recreational Products as a quality supplier for all of your playground needs.
