Heart of Pine Lawn Community Playground
Pine Lawn, Missouri 

Gateway Design Studio provided design, construction and bid documents for a proposed all-inclusive playground and park pavilion as part of the planned Pine Lawn Neighborhood Park. The playground is located at the southwest corner intersection of Pasadena and Fairchild across from Beyond Housing Headquarter in Pine Lawn, MO. 


Plans addressed a proposed all-inclusive fenced-in playground area for children ages 5-12 years old. The playground space would also include a swing set area and future adjacent park pavilion for gatherings. Special attention was given to creating a fun and safe environment which would be sustainable and vandal proof. Other considerations included the use of permeable rubberized surfacing for the playground area.


Bid documents were be issued to local certified playground contractors to provide the best recommended playground equipment and accessories for a Not-to-Exceed cost of $150,000 for the playground space. Bids were received by GDS and reviewed for completeness and qualifications. A meeting was conducted with the Owner to review the bid results at which time a decision was made on a bid award to the best qualified contractor to do the work.
