Swings and climbing for all ages at the Honolulu Zoo


Today’s school-age kids need playgrounds that inspires them to put down their devices, turn off the video games, and get active. Modern school-age playgrounds must have long term engagement and be able to inspire gaming. The kind of gaming you can’t find sitting in front of a screen. Instead school-age playgrounds should have materials and designs that attract children to engage in challenging physical activities with their peers.


Activity and socialization are important parts of development at this age. That’s why we are really fond of the school age play equipment featured here. Climbing to new heights, spinning with friends, and swinging from the bars are great ways to develop social skills and physical fitness.

Highwire offers a broad range of school-age playgrounds and equipment from explorer domes, spica spinners, and the latest in school-age play: the icon interactive playground equipment.


The latest innovations in school-age playground designs combine what kids love most: electronic gaming with their friends, and intense physical activities. The ICON line of playground equipment from KOMPAN integrates high-tech gaming into modern school age playgrounds. The pieces are individually exciting by themselves, but become even more interesting when kids learn how to achieve new skills via the electronic game functions offered by the various pieces of playground equipment.

Contact us for a design consultation and find out how you can add some of these technologically advanced playground pieces into your next school-age playground project.
