This economically designed commercial-grade playground contains a surprising amoount of exciting features. The Ketchum's minimal footprint will be appreciated by playground designers desiring to install a structure on a smaller lot. Both robust physical activities with dramatic play and clever game features are indluded in the playscape. A short trip up a helping Transfer Station leads children to the central elevated platform. Once there, the children will see a Ship’s Wheel appealing to their imaginations. All of the sudden they find themselves on the deck of a sailboat on the roiling sea! When done sailing the high seas, a game on the Tic-Tac-Toe component is ready to invite the making of a new friend. If they choose to race down the Ketchum's double slide with their new friend, they can then examine the words on the Half Spelling Panel or crawl through the mysterious Tube Bridge.
