About Our One of a Kind Playgrounds

Well sometimes here at Asheville Playgrounds folks call us with all kinds of one of a kind ideas. We love to stretch our imaginations and we don’t shy away from unique projects, from huge locust slab picnic tables to outdoor game spinners to free form locust climbers to the 45 foot long fish playground we are building for a county park on an island in the river. So if you have an idea for a unique play element and don’t have any idea where to get it, contact us and let’s talk. We will do our best to work with you to implement your vision.

Case Study: The Fish Playground (in Progress)

Saxapahaw One of a Kind Fish Main Image

After acquiring a small island wedged in the middle of the Haw River in Saxapahaw, North Carolina, the county contacted us to build a unique fish playground in the new space. This fish has been no easy catch, but extremely rewarding. Built almost like an upside-down boat, we carefully measured and masterfully crafted tapered boards into this large beauty in the form of the bowfin fish native to the river. This playground will be open to the public in the Spring of 2018 and features a locust swing set, locust balance beams, a spider crawl net, and of course the giant fish. It has a rock wall up the sides, a tube slide coming out of the mouth, and giant steel top fin, and a tailfin climber the kids will get to play on. Because it’s such an artistic community, the county has invited the local kids to come in and paint it! And don’t forget the wacky googly eyes! This was one of our most unique projects yet! Check out some of the progress pictures below.
