Ocee Park Re-Opens with Miracle Playground

Ocee Park Re-Opens with Miracle Playground Ocee Park, located in John’s Creek, Georgia, received a Miracle® Makeover this past month, with help from Hasley Recreation, Inc. A brand new state-of-the-art playground took the place of an outdated structure. Robby Newton, Parks Manager, led this project with safe but challenging play in mind. Two structures were completed in early April— one for children ages two to five, and another for five to twelve-year-olds. Newton couldn’t have been happier with his decision to entrust Hasley Recreation with this project. “From a project management perspective, the recent John’s Creek Ocee Park Playground renovation with Miracle was extremely smooth, from the contract phase through the last pitch of engineered wood fiber! In fact, they finished two weeks ahead of my projected timeline!”   Ages 2-5 For the younger children, the structure includes climbing opportunities and slides, with Miracle’s new not-so-traditional Generation Swing (shown left), which allows for siblings, parents, grandparents, or caretakers to enjoy face-to-face swinging with a toddler. In addition, the climbing ramp provides a safe play experience for younger visitors. Ages 5-12 For the older kids, Miracle brings back the thrill of play with a multi-level Mega-Tower® and the inclusive Avalanche Slide. This slide is the first and only ... Read more

Located just over 40 miles from Joplin, Miracle Recreation’s manufacturing facility and offices employ many Joplin residents.  Several employees and their families were personally affected by the tornado.  “Our employees were deeply affected by the Joplin tragedy and it was important to us as a company and as a member of the community to help with the rebuilding process,” added Don Hemingway, Vice President of Business Development for Miracle’s parent company, PlayPower, Inc.  Immediately following the disaster in Joplin, Miracle Recreation Equipment Company implemented a “Playgrounds 4 Joplin” program, which generated a $25,000 contribution towards the replacement playground.

Enter to Win a School Playground from Miracle Recreation Equipment

Active outdoor play is an essential element in the health and emotional well-being of children. Regular playtime at school can teach younger children the basics of good sportsmanship and fair play as well as instilling a love of physical activity and healthy exercise that can promote better health throughout the child’s life. Scientific studies have demonstrated time and again that regular free play is necessary for the proper development of muscles and small and large motor skills, and it is a key element in the emotional and intellectual growth of preschool and school-aged children. A Safe Place to Play Due to budget cuts and limited funds, many schools are making do with aging, increasingly unsafe playgrounds or, in some cases, with no playgrounds at all. This is especially true for smaller schools that may not be able to come up with the necessary funds for a safe, appealing playground for their students. This can limit the free play opportunities of the students and result in a reduced ability to pay attention and learn well during class time. The best playgrounds are designed not only for physical activity, but also to spur the imaginations of students. Children who miss out on these ... Read more
