Where imagination gets real.
With its eye-catching and innovative approach to playground design with urban and rustic features, NU-edge® featuring Naturtek™ is fused with natural play components that allows kids to venture into a world of discovery. Kids can climb trees, scale big rocks or navigate across a wood plank bridge. Let the adventure begin!
Nature-inspired play is an important part of childhood development. Playgrounds that incorporate this type of play can encourage children to respect the environment and teach them more about the world around them.
Most children also show an interest and curiosity about nature. Many children, for example, show an interest in plants and love animals. Nature-inspired play structures can help nurture those early interests.
Nature Play With NU-edge® and Little Tikes Commercial
Little Tikes Commercial offers a number of custom and themed options for nature play. In fact, we’ve designed entire playgrounds specifically for organizations looking for a nature inspired playground. Some of the nature inspired playground equipment we offer includes:
- The Tot Tree. This structure lets children climb into a tree safely, while encouraging them to think about trees as a structure. The textured “bark” and bright leaves help develop a love of nature early.
- The NU-edge® Rock Challenge Wall. Made from patented Naturtek™ material, this climber looks like textured stone and provides a fun surface for climbing and nature themed play.
- The Naturtek™ Tree Climb With Tree House Panel. Made to look like a real tree, these nature-themed play structures give kids the feeling of climbing on trees and into treehouses.
- NU-edge® Rock Step With Stump Transfer Station. Children can feel like they are in a magical forest with this fun tree stump and large “stone” step designed to encourage imaginative play.
- Stacked Timber Wall. Made from Naturtek™ material, this study climber is ideal for any nature-themed play sets. Made to look like real timber, it is durable and lets children climb to their heart’s content.
- Leaf Roof. This roof is the perfect way to make your nature-themed playground well-shaded. It provides sun protection while blending in with nature themed playground equipment.
With these and other pieces of nature-inspired playground equipment, you can build a playground designed to emulate the natural world, while helping children get exercise and start to appreciate the environment around them. Little Tikes Commercial can also design and build custom solutions for you if you want different kinds of nature-inspired playground equipment.
