Customer Testimonials

Four moms with no experience in building anything but Lego towers, decided to raise $250,000 to build a new playground in town. Our first and most important objective was to find the right person to help guide us through this monumental project. After interviewing five companies, we decided on Childscapes without a moment of hesitation. We never regretted that early decision.

We chose Childscapes for a number of reasons. His design provided the most amount of play space and equipment on our limited budget. His proposal was prompt and complete with all the elements we had noted as priorities. We were also impressed with Childscapes professionalism and his heart felt confidence regarding the Burke line of products.

As the project got underway, Childscapes was extremely flexible in making changes to the design and keeping us posted on the status of the work. I always new they were only a phone call away and that I would get a return call as soon as possible. The project was completed by our deadline and we had a great opening day!

This project had the potential to be a major nightmare but thanks in large part to Childscapes work this was never the case. I would do another project with Childscapes in a heartbeat.

About 6 months ago we began the initial planning of an aggressive playground renovation at the Bright Horizons Facilities at the Prudential in Boston. After months of planning, bids, value engineering, equipment purchases and installation coordination, Childscapes was able to help pull it all together and deliver one of the most significant playground improvements in my tenure at Bright Horizons. Thank you for your patience, commitment and cooperative attitude during this job.

Our center Director had this to add about your company:

"From the very beginning, Childscapes was very professional in planning and carrying out the renovations to the playground. Their crew was faced with the very daunting task of digging out tons of soil and pea gravel. Everyday they came early and left late in the evening. The only time I saw them break was for lunch! I could not have expected them to work any harder. Now that the playground is complete, the children absolutely love the new playground and the new ground surfacing. I would highly recommend Childscapes for any future playground renovations. They did a wonderful job!"

Clearly this is a testament from a well satisfied customer. Thank you again for your effort on this project. I look forward to working with Childscapes on many projects in the future.

We just completed 28 playscapes using Childscapes and BCI Burke equipment. Childscapes was a great company to work with. The staff and installers are CPSI certified as am I. The City of Danbury hired a consultant originally who recommended that we use Burke Equipment. They are one of the original play equipment companies in business for over eighty years. I found that their engineering department and customer service were outstanding. Childscapes supplied CAD drawings and complete layouts to fit each site. I would not use a consultant again. We did almost one million dollars with Childscapes including also two Water Spray Parks. Their equipment is also on the State Bid List. We also constructed the first 100% Handicap Accessible Playscape at our Magnet School with Childscapes spearheading the project through the State of Connecticut Architecture Review Board. I interviewed several other companies and went with Childscapes as their reputation and integrity is not matched in my opinion and we will continue to do business with them in the future.

All of us at Erdman Preschool want you to know how much we love our new play structure. It's the only part of the playground that the kids want to play on. The fathers who helped install the structure were very impressed with your organization, thoroughness and good humor. After last year's fiasco they were thrilled to work for someone like you! From start to finish it was pleasure to work with you on this project. You can be sure that the next time we do playground renovations you will be our first and only call.

My sincere thanks again.


How do I say, "Thank you" for all that you have done? While the physical structure of the playground is, indeed, a testimony to your extraordinary efforts, what is not so visible but just as extraordinary is the 'esprit de corps' that you cultivated amongst all the volunteers. Working on the playground over the weekend was a great experience, one that will long be remembered by everyone who contributed. It was a thrill to participate.

The Primary children were delightful to watch today as they scampered with abandon from one activity to another. Unfortunately, as the rain picked up, the equipment became wet and slippery so the Intermediate children had recess indoors. We'll hope for better weather tomorrow.

Thank you for the pictures. It will take awhile to review them all, but the ones I've seen capture nicely the joy that can be found on the playground, right along with each piece of equipment.

Kudos to all of you! I hope the satisfaction you should feel from a job superbly done offsets any aching bones or blisters you are enduring from the weekend. On behalf of the Greenwood School faculty and students, I extend my deepest gratitude.

We are thrilled with the new playground at the Old Main Street Fire Station in Marshfield Hills! We would like to extend a very special thank you to Childscapes for their expertise, support and accessibility over the past two years. We are grateful that you facilitated the pro bono excavation and that you donated countless hours of your own time and money to make this project a success.

It has been a pleasure working with Childscapes on a project that, we hope, will be enjoyed by Marshfield families for many years to come. We look forward to continuing to work with you and thanks again!

cannot thank you enough for all your help on Saturday. I knew your company Childscapes would be there to supervise, but you certainly put in a full day of work. It was hard to separate you from one of the "dads" except that you knew what you were doing! You were just one of us! The playscape looks wonderful and the children cannot wait to get on it. The structure will be a great addition to our school.

I also want you to know what a pleasure it was to work with Wes Lee. He was so helpful and very available. He is willing to listen and when he thought it was appropriate he guided us in the right direction. Thank you again for your help, support and patience.

I would like to thank you for your significant contributions towards our Bogalusa, Louisiana Playground Project in the aftermath of Hurricane Katrina. The children of the Northside Elementary School will enjoy your handiwork for years to come. Your design, your material contributions, and your caring and concern are representative of what made our efforts so rewarding. Our students now realize that they can make a difference in people's lives. Your assistance in helping their vision become a reality will always be appreciated.

I want to express my gratitude to Wes Lee and the members of your team at Childscapes. You have created an outstanding playground for The Ripton School. There were a lot of things to consider with this project including: age range of Children, budget constrictions, topography of land and different ability levels. You met all of our requirements and exceeded my expectations!

Ripton School


The reaction from the town has been very positive…The park is used by children and families all day long, and it has become the favorite park in town.
