Playground Design Process

Whether you are looking to design and build your playground, just need professional advice as you begin the planning and fundraising stage or somewhere in between; we can help.

Generally, we follow a four stage design process:

Step One: Design Brief

Graphically Communicate Your Playground Design Vision
The design brief brings together all aspects of the playground vision – ideas, hopes, intentions, and learning objectives together with a comprehensive analysis of the existing playground to inform the detail design of the new facilities. [More]

Step Two: Playground Concept

Develop Realistic 3D Modelling of Your New Playground Design
Right from the beginning we design our playgrounds utilising leading edge 3D modeling software. With this approach both our designers and our clients can virtually walk through the design and really get a feel for how the playground will look and feel. [More]

Step Three: Detail Design

Comprehensive Construction Documents
The Detail Design phase is principally concerned with the process of transforming the natural playground concept into a set of construction documents including drawings, notes, and technical specifications necessary for bidding, and construction. [More]

Step Four: Playground Construction

Achieve Your Playground Vision On Time and On Budget
There are several options available for the construction of your natural playground. Whether you choose to build the project yourself, want to hire a professional contractor or would prefer us to take on the responsibility to build your playground we can help. [More]

We were more than impressed with the ingenuity of design, the skills used to interpret the functional requirements for this playground and talent in designing and management the project. I have no doubt Earthartist will make an unqualified success of any landscape / playground assignment given to them.

Earthartist completed a comprehensive evaluation of the existing playgrounds, environmental surrounding and adjacent facilities prior to meeting with stakeholders, staff and tenant groups for collaborative effort for the design development. I would definitely recommend Earthartist Planning and Design without hesitation.

The playground at our 275 Eramosa Road office in Guelph was faced challenging site size and proximity to the street. Mike successfully created and executed a design that provides privacy, security, safety and integrates a variety of elements for the children and youth visiting our facility. The unique design elements went beyond the imagination of anyone on our senior staff team and our clients are very pleased with the final design. I have no hesitation to recommend Earthartist for your upcoming project

Chris Tremeer, Director – F&CS Corporate Services

Mike’s efforts have been paramount in bringing our vision to the broader school community and generating support required to bring this innovative project to fruition. There is no doubt that our new outdoor learning playscape will be a tremendous success an a huge asset to not only members of the Havergal community, but will benefit the City of Toronto for many future generations because of Mike’s involvement, commitment and passion for this project. I have no hesitation in recommending Earthartist and welcome the opportunity to elaborate further if required.
