About The Natural Playgrounds Company®

The Natural Playgrounds Company, LLC® is a customer-oriented design and construction firm specializing in natural play environments for child care centers, schools, and communities. Actually, we're beginning to think we're able to provide naturally challenging play and learning elements and environments for people of all ages, especially as, after numerous customer requests, we just introduced fitness and mud run elements into our online store (www.naturalplaygroundsstore.com)

We combine skills in architectural design, land planning, construction, landscaping, environmental art, civil engineering, child education, and environmental protection to bring you cost-effective, innovate, Natural Playgrounds in which children, teenagers, teachers, parents, and the rest of the public love to learn, play, be challenged, or relax.

During our comprehensive design process, we develop very simple, very inexpensive, yet very elegant and environmentally sensitive solutions to some of the most vexing problems you might be having on your site, such as drainage, which is a very common issue.

We have three main divisions:

  • Design: which provides both simple and comprehensive designs, some of the latter of which are accompanied by construction drawings/bid documents. We design small, medium, or large Natural Playgrounds for child care centers, Montessori Schools, public elementary, middle, and high schools, nature centers, and municipalities.
  • Construction: our construction crew travels all over the country building Natural Playgrounds, from 2500 square feet to 80 acres. This is all they do, so they know what they're doing, which means they're very fast, very efficient, and very cost-effective.
  • Manufacturing: we have a 7,000 square foot shop in NH where we design, prototype, field-test, and manufacture all of our learning and play elements under controlled conditions.


Please contact The Natural Playgrounds Company® to discuss your thoughts and plans. We welcome your inquiries and will get back in touch with you promptly.
Thank you for spending some time with us today.
