About Our Company

Here at Asheville Playgrounds we’re focused on creating spectacular design-built playgrounds and tree houses. Our company has been around since 1985. With over 30 years in experience, we’ve built playgrounds all over the South and Southeast United States. From Florida to New Jersey, and from coastal North Carolina to Alabama. Our shop and office is located in Asheville, NC – an artistic haven known for quality woodworking and craftsmanship. Our designs are tailored to your aesthetics, needs and budget. We typically build with pressure-treated wood as well as natural materials like locust tree trunks, rhododendron, and mountain laurel branches – to add real mountain flavor to your custom playground. We are well known for creating large play sets particularly for developments, parks, churches, schools, campgrounds and larger residences. Check out some of our work in the photo gallery!  

About the Owners

Most importantly, we work the old-fashioned way to ensure your total satisfaction. Owners Jerry and Evelyn – Jerry Hajek being an expert craftsman and Evelyn Anderson as a CPSI (Certified Playground Safety Inspector) work with you every step of the way, from concept to completion. One or both of the owners usually travel on-site with our top-notch crew. Jerry and Evelyn work hard to source the natural materials we use locally in and around Asheville. Structures are hand-built in our facility and assembled on your site. In addition we’re working towards a minimal waste system. And although we make playgrounds for children, we know that adults enjoy them too.

Let’s play!

We love creating one of a kind play areas for kids and adults alike. A phone call is not an obligation. Co-owner Evelyn Anderson will come to your location anywhere within about an hour from Asheville, and discuss design possibilities with you and find out your particular needs. All we need from you is what your kids like to do and some basic information to get moving forward. Evelyn will then create a digital footprint of the project. We can provide a masterfully hand-drawn sketch upon request by expert designer Jerry Hajek with your estimate to help you with fundraising or to visualize your very own Asheville Playground. Contact us today to get started!
