Are there any grants available for building my playground?

What are my playground surfacing options and how do they differ?
There are many different options for playground surfacing including poured-in-place, rubber tiles, woodchips, artificial grass, loose fill rubber, and PebbleFlex. These options vary in look, feel, price, required site preparation, installation, and maintenance. Explore our Surfacing section for an overview of each option and contact your sales representative to discuss which option might be right for your play space.
Do you offer installation services?
We do not personally offer installation services but we have working relationships with several contracting companies that have extensive experience in playground installations. We can refer you to an installer or if requested, can solicit an installation quote for your specific project.
Can volunteers install my playground?
Yes, community builds are a great way to foster community spirit and save costs on installation. Detailed installation instructions are provided with every order, although some component installations can be challenging for inexperienced installers. If you are considering a community build, please contact your sales representative and he or she can provide guidance and helpful planning information.
What is the lead time for your products?

What other costs do I need to consider for my project beyond the equipment costs?
List prices are for equipment only but when we prepare a quote we typically include shipping costs and sales tax, if applicable. There are also a variety of other costs to consider for playground projects, including:
- Equipment Installation Costs
- Relevant Site Work Costs (e.g. base prep, curbing, concrete, etc.)
- Surfacing Material & Installation Costs
Is it possible to make upgrades to my existing playground without buying a whole new structure?
Yes, NuToys can work with you to update and refresh your existing playground. We can retrofit your playground and incorporate exciting new play elements that will bring fresh life to your play space, while also making sure that it meets current accessibility and safety standards. Please contact your sales representative to schedule a site visit and review of your existing play area.
Can I plan my playground to be built in phases?
Yes, the modularity of our playground components and skate parks allow for them to be planned and built in phases. This is a great option if you would like to start out with some initial equipment and then gradually build your playground as additional resources and funds become available.
Do you accept credit cards for payment?
