About Us

Designed For Fun, Inc. is dedicated to providing the design, equipment, construction and installation supervision of safe, durable, and fun children's play environments.

A well-designed playground fosters game playing and social interaction. And a great design must also remain within budget restraints, site requirements and safety standards while accommodating the opinions of interested parties.

"A great playground design encourages participation and sharing while at the same time allowing space for developing individual skills"
