Arizona ranks as the sunniest state in the U.S., placed among many other sunny West Coast states high on the list—such as New Mexico, California, and Nevada. To no one’s surprise, the sun is a major part of daily living in Arizona, and we make choices based on it, such as parking our cars in the shade or wearing sunglasses outside. Quite frankly, the sun is a factor in many decisions made, especially when planning a new or revamped play area. Phoenix park planners can keep their cool with commercial shade structures: a helpful addition to any recreational site.
For the Kids
Sunshine and playgrounds go hand-in-hand, but the bright rays can make playtime into a bad time. A hot, sunny day may lead to heat exhaustion and dehydration for the kiddos running around the playground. Also, consider how exposure to UV rays may damage their skin. Playing under the sun does have its benefits, but it’s also helpful to know about sun safety. Staying in the shade is a great way to make the most of a beautiful, sunny day. A commercial shade structure can make a huge difference on the playground.
For Your Equipment
Playground equipment has come a long way over the decades. It’s built to last even under the harshest conditions. With the right manufacturer and installer, playground equipment truly is a well-advised investment. That said, shade structures can help prolong the equipment’s longevity. Commercial shade structures for your park can protect your playground equipment from the brutal Phoenix elements.
While the sun may wear on a playground over time, it’s important to emphasize that equipment from a reputable manufacturer is designed and built to withstand outdoor elements. Another concern, however, is ensuring surfaces are cool. Shade structures will help keep the playground as cool as possible, minimizing the risk of irritating kids’ skin while playing.
The industry’s most trusted shade structures are durable and look great as well. Zoom Recreation partners with a shade structure manufacturer that prioritizes build quality, sun protection, and aesthetics that meet the needs of any park or community. This means using metal supports multiple powder coats for longevity and top-grade fabrics with high wind loads.
A professional playground designer will make the most of a shade structure by maximizing its coverage and ensuring proper clearance above and away from the playground when installed. This process leaves parks with the best results.
Playground equipment and accessories can be a major investment for any park or community. This is something generations of kids and families will enjoy for years to come. With that in mind, getting reliable advice and great execution of the work makes a difference.

“We recently worked with Dan Smith and team for the addition of a Hip Shade Cover at one of our pool facilities. They were responsive with their correspondence, had competitive pricing, and gave updates throughout the construction of the project.”
