Ketchum is a commercial-grade playground installation that contains a surprising amount of exciting features in its economically designed framework. Playground designers needing to install a structure on a smaller lot will appreciate the minimal footprint of the Ketchum. Particularly helpful is how the playscape manages to include both robust physical activities with dramatic play and clever game features. A short trip up a helping Transfer Station gets kids to the unit’s central elevated platform. There they might turn towards a curious Ship’s Wheel and have their imaginations sparked. The installation instantly transforms into the deck of a sailboat on a roiling sea! Or kiddos might instead swivel behind them to play against each other in a match of wits using the Tic-Tac-Toe component or clamber down to examine the words on the Half Spelling Panel. More spirited youth will get a big kick out of zooming down the Ketchum’s Double Slide or crawling through the mysterious Tube Bridge.
