About Playground Guardian
Playground Guardian is a 3rd-generation American company based in Charlotte, North Carolina. We’re passionate about playground safety. Keeping parks and playgrounds fun and safe is at the core of who we are.
How it All Began
Playground Guardian an Industry Leader in Park & Playground Inspection Services Since 2007
Cunningham Recreation was founded by George Cunningham in 1966 representing GameTime play equipment. Now, a third-generation company covering almost a third of the US, our team has designed, installed and maintained playground equipment for thousands of municipalities, schools and neighborhood parks for over 50 years.
In trying to meet the evolving needs of our customers, we uncovered a large concern regarding safety compliance and maintenance. Thus, the need for Playground Guardian. Playground Guardian provides a full range of customized, onsite safety inspection services and playground software to help maintain our customers investment.
In addition, we developed Park Protector, a cloud-based inspection software. Park Protector playground inspection software streamlines park and playground inspections with a user-friendly interface and real-time access to digital records, photos and reports. It’s an eco-friendly way to secure data while minimizing paperwork and duplication of effort.
Scott is a third generation playground professional that has been in the playground business since 1993. During that time he has overseen the design and installation of thousands of playgrounds and manages one of the industry’s largest sales team representing park and recreation equipment in 16 states. He has also taught several playground safety seminars where he has trained playground maintenance staff members to develop comprehensive playground safety plans.
