Why Hire Us?

Our objective is to be the best in the recreation industry in Northern Minnesota and North Dakota. Playgrounds are our expertise! Northwoods Playground & Park Amenities has the staff knowledge to install any of the projects we sell. When you begin a relationship with Northwoods, you get service directly from our team - start to finish. We do not sub out any installations to other contractors and we possess the equipment and manpower to do the job ourselves. We are responsible and will make sure your project is completed correctly and on time.

1. Convenience

We live and work in Northern Minnesota. We are attentive, friendly, flexible, and take the time to partner with you and/or your park committee whenever you need our assistance or guidance.

2. Deep Discounts

As the Minnesota and North Dakota Service Cooperative Representative, we offer you a substantial savings on all recreation equipment—17% off of play structures. We also have excellent yearly sales on certain play structures at 30–40% off.

3. Free Designs

During our free consultation with you, we listen to what you want. We then provide free custom designs and a marketing packet for your project. Our registered landscape architect is equipped to design your entire park, playground, or event center.

Complete Playground & Park Designs

We often hear from schools and cities that they wish they had designed their TOTAL playground area or park rather than just a small portion. At Northwoods Playground & Park Amenities, we can do this complete design vision and plan for you! An overall plan is also important when requesting state and federal grants as well as private foundations.

Full Playground & Outdoor School Design

We take recess seriously at Northwoods Playgrounds & Park Amenities, working directly with you and your PTO to develop a total playground and school outdoor area. By designing your total area, you will know what opportunities you have for providing the best recreation, creative play structures, outdoor classrooms, and interpretive/education trails you can provide at your school. The design example below is of the Audubon Elementary School.

Full Park Design

Looking for an all-encompassing playground design for a local park? We work with you and your park committee, designing your whole park so you know exactly what your total design is, including the cost to develop it and future operational costs. The design example below is of Central Hill Community Park in Duluth, Minnesota.

City Plaza / Event Center

Your city may need a centralized community plaza or event center to have special presentations, local events, art/musical presentations, farmer's markets, weddings, family reunions or just for fun. We can design this special area working with you and your community. We can also determine the exact cost and what it will take to maintain.

The design example below is of the City of Little Fork, Minnesota.

4. Accountability

The process of getting a first-class play system should be simple, streamlined, and efficient. At Northwoods, you deal with one contact to take care of design, sales, and installation of all equipment. One team is responsible for your project from start to finish, no subcontractors. 

5. Fundraising

We know budgets are tight. We know how to get you grants and locally fundraise for your project.

6. Volunteer Install Support

We will directly work with you and your community on a volunteer install by providing a whole crew and our equipment.
