Powell, Ohio Wins Burke Playground

Congratulations to Silas Bowers and the city of Powell, Ohio, for winning the Greater Play Giveaway! The contest, sponsored by Parks & Rec Business and Camp Business magazines—awarded one lucky reader a chance to win a playground system from BCI Burke. The city will receive a brand-new Nucleus/Intensity playground valued at more than $28,000.

“This is an exciting time for us in Powell,” said Bowers, Assistant Director of Parks. “Our community is vibrant and we pride ourselves on providing outdoor spaces for the whole family. Winning this playground from Burke allows us to complete an outdoor playspace much sooner than we otherwise would have, giving our residents one more place to stay active and engaged.”

We hope the new equipment brings smiles to hundreds of children’s faces for years to come.

In related news, the town of Shallotte, N.C. officially unveiled their play equipment at a ribbon-cutting ceremony in late May. Rachel Johnson won the first Great Play Giveaway contest in 2015. As the winner, the town received a brand new Intensity playground from BCI Burke valued at almost $15,000.
