What Is the Cost of Commercial Playground Equipment?
Commercial playground equipment can cost anywhere from $8,000 to $50,000. The recommendation is to budget for $1,000 per child. Larger, customized playgrounds and those that include accessible features may call for a budget upwards of $150,000. Keep in mind that these numbers include more than just the equipment itself.
The equipment that is purchased in many cases takes up around 60% of the cost. Installation, depending on the size of the project and the complexity of the equipment can take up around 25 to 40% of the budget. The remaining budget for many projects will consist of site preparation (including features like playground borders as well as proper drainage and irrigation), shipping fees, and taxes.

Do You Need Safety Surfacing for Your Playground?
A commercial playground is not complete without the right surfacing to keep children safe as they play. With up to 80% of playground injuries resulting from falls, it’s clear that surfaces like concrete, asphalt, or even grass are not enough. Below are safety-approved surfaces that are excellent choices for your park or playground, all of which are offered by Go Play.
- Poured-in-place rubber
- Rubber tile
- Rubber mulch/bonded rubber mulch
- Engineered wood fiber
- Synthetic turf

Will Outdoor Playground Equipment Need Ongoing Maintenance?
Why Get Playground Maintenance?
Quality outdoor playground equipment is built to last for years and made to withstand all kinds of weather, including the unpredictable weather we experience in Denver. However, regular maintenance is key for a number of reasons:
- Maintenance helps keep children and families safe. Making sure your park or playground is regularly maintained can help reduce the risk of injury. This includes not only inspecting and repairing equipment as needed, but also maintaining the grounds.
- Consistent maintenance will help protect your investment and extend the life of the equipment you purchased.
- Proper maintenance will help limit liability if an injury were to occur. This shows that you are doing everything you can to keep injuries from happening.
Maintaining Your Playground
Your playground should be inspected around every 3 months to ensure it is safe and functioning properly.
Regular maintenance will include tasks like making sure any loose surfacing is not scattered and that it has enough depth in all areas. Borders will be checked to make sure they are intact and not loose. Ladders and other climbing features will be inspected for peeling paint, cracks, loose or missing rungs, rust, or joints that need securing. Slides should not have peeling paint, loose enclosures, missing hardware, rust, or any breaking connections. The “S” hooks on swings must all be closed and not too worn, and the chains and seats should be in good condition. That’s just a glimpse into what needs to happen on a regular basis to ensure your playground is in top shape.
