Our Story: How + why we build serious fun
Design and build inspiring custom playgrounds that stimulate children’s imaginations, offer physical challenge and beneficial risk, foster social interaction and creative play.
Design exceptional play value into playground sculptures and structures that provide ideal environments for healthy physical, social and cognitive development.
Create one-of-a-kind playscape destinations for cities and communities where children and families will gather time and again to play.
Handcraft durable and long-lasting bespoke playscapes using the highest quality materials.
Sometimes things grow bigger than you ever would have imagined; in ways you never could have envisioned. As highly regarded landscape design-contractors, our early playground work began with a focus on natural playgrounds for local schools and child care centres.
The goal was to connect children and nature; to get them active and engaged in play in a unique way, and to offer an alternative to traditional post-and-deck manufactured playground equipment.
As we collaborated with new clients and Landscape Architects, natural playgrounds evolved into more epic, bespoke playscapes with towering structures and unique sculptures. We felt the craving for more interesting, aesthetically beautiful, and challenging playgrounds to create one-of-a-kind destinations for cities and communities.
Earthscape wood playground structures and sculptures have grown larger, taller, more technical, and more intricate to maximize play value. Now, Earthscape is a leader in the renaissance of custom playgrounds, incorporating natural materials, creative site-based design, and the highest quality construction.
In 2021, Earthscape Collections launched through dealer partners in Canada and the United States, offering even more communities the opportunity to access Earthscape's high-quality wood playground designs.
Our playgrounds are designed to be inclusive, innovative, unique and challenging; spaces for testing boundaries, advancing physical skills and building confidence and independence. They are places to be enjoyed by people of all ages and all abilities.
Inviting and engaging playgrounds encourage physical activity, imaginative play and social interaction. Thoughtfully designed playscapes entice children to climb, jump, swing, hang and balance. They are non-prescriptive and often without obvious routes or pathways so children can use their imaginations to play in new ways. Read more about our approach to design.
Who We Are
Earthscape is a collection of kids-at-heart who are dedicated to designing and building amazing playgrounds for serious fun around the world. We combine landscape architecture, industrial design, architecture, engineering, carpentry, and project management to bring brilliant playground concepts to life.
We collaborate with landscape architecture firms, municipalities, developers, museums, zoos, science centres, schools, and child care centres to create innovative wood playscapes.
In 2019, Earthscape began the process of transitioning to an employee-owned business through an Employee Share Ownership Plan (ESOP). Employee ownership reflects our culture of collaboration and commitment to customer service, sustainability, and growth.
Our playgrounds are proudly Canadian-designed and fabricated in our studio and workshop in Wallenstein, Ontario where our experienced designers, engineers, craftspeople and installation experts work side by side.
From our workshop, fabricated equipment is shipped and installed internationally.
