Customer Testimonials

Jameson's Joy Memorial Fitness Park

"The ELEVATE Fitness Course appealed to us because of it’s unique design and the ability to challenge both kids and adults based on their strength level. I couldn’t be more pleased with the staff at Barrs Recreation for their guidance throughout the entire process, and ensuring that we were satisfied with the course after it was installed. Our course came to fruition through a partnership with a foundation that was formed after the founders lost their 9 year old son prematurely. Barrs Recreation went above and beyond what was expected by donating benches and a memorial sign that depicted a replica of his handwriting and the special partnership between the county and foundation. Barrs Recreation represents everything you’d want when searching for playground equipment, unique equipment that will attract customers and phenomenal customer service!”

Middle Creek Elementary School

"Thank you so much for all your hard work on this project! First, we could not have done this without the help of Alisa and Burke. The generosity of grant and knowledge of the importance of play was invaluable to our planning process. As well, John's team played an important role from design to installation. Our PTA, Parents, Staff and especially, our students are grateful for such a fantastic, Burke structure to add to our playground and play on every day! It is absolutely beautiful and a great addition to our Middle Creek Elementary property."

Thanks again for all your help! With deepest gratitude,

"...Although the children will be the final critics of the new structure, we are all very pleased with what you installed. It should give us many years of low maintenance service. Your people were a pleasure to work with."

"Our sincere appreciation and thanks to all who participated in building the playground for the children at First Journey’s and Jenkins Memorial UMC Raleigh. Thanks for your ministry and gift of time and talents on behalf of so many others. Even one of our oldest members at age 85 was seen to be playing on it! It is beautiful and used all the time, and we all are so very grateful."
