Our Ponderosa Commercial Playground, built in the grand Hemlock Forest of Cathedral State Park in West Virginia.
Bears Playgrounds was the perfect choice for this State Park, providing a children's playground in an ancient hemlock forest of majestic proportions, and one of the last living commemorations of the vast virgin hemlock forest which once flourished in the Appalachian highlands. Trees up to 90 feet in height and 21 feet in circumference form cloisters in the park. Throughout the woods, eastern hemlock is the dominant species.
In our natural playgrounds, whole log construction gives an organic, wholesome feeling that is cohesive with this beautiful setting. Though ideally suited here, Bears Playgrounds are designed to compliment the natural setting of any environment.
With our playgrounds, we have created a "hybrid" or balance between the innocent, natural adventure of playing in the forest and the structure and safety required by today’s standards for children’s spaces. We have been building natural playgrounds since long before it was trendy. And we have always understood that natural, renewable materials are far greener than powder coated steel and plastics. Our expertise in creating children’s outdoor spaces, and experience in log construction, is what makes Bears the perfect choice for transforming your existing space or creating a new space into a Bears Natural Playground.
