At the 2019 NRPA Annual Conference, we had the opportunity to chat with BCI Burke to learn how their new Nucleus Evolution play system inspires children in a variety of ways.

When BCI Burke designed the Nucleus Evolution, they knew they wanted to build a unique tower that would give children a sense of adventure and provide amazing views from the top, while still being safe. “However, as we got into it we realized that this [play system] isn’t for just going up, this could be really exciting as a way to incorporate climbing into any place space no matter the budget or the amount of space,” says Sarah Lisiecki, Marketing and Communications Specialist at BCI Burke.

The play system is designed to not only grab attention and draw people in but also encourage visitors to stay at a park longer. Nucleus Evolution offers many options for inclusive play through play variety and easily accessible features like the Orb Rocker.
