Playground Equipment at Fond du Lac County Fairgrounds, Wisconsin

See more Playground Designs: BCI Burke couldn't wait to get one of their newly designed and built Nucleus™ playgrounds in the hands of some of the most important people in the world-kids. So, working with Fond du Lac County, they designed a remarkable system and installed it across town from their factory in the Fond du Lac County Fairgrounds complex that includes a water park and various shelters for gathering. The new unit perfectly complimented the already existing play units and swings installed by the city over the years. Nucleus allows Burke to build more variety into playgrounds, integrate traditional and fitness-oriented equipment, and make better use of limited playground space meets worldwide ASTM, CSA, EN 1176 and Australian safety standards, paving the way for Burke to offer its full line of playground components internationally. Fitness-oriented playgrounds have made a significant impact with purchasers of playgrounds because of the surge in childhood obesity. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention report that among children between six and 11, the prevalence of obesity has shot up from 6.5 percent in the 1970s to 17 percent in 2003-2006. The Nucleus structure was an immediate hit with neighborhood families and those gathering for events. A multitude of play events keep the kids busy for hours including the signature Kidforce Spinner, Tsunami slide, Spiral Slide, Pod Walk, and Satellite Climber, just to name a few.
