  • Cleveland-Lorain-Elyria, OH (1888PressRelease) September 02, 2011 - A new playground will be installed later this year in conjunction with grand prize contest announcement by BCI Burke recently. The City of Strongsville, OH, was the lucky winner of the contest held by the playground manufacturer, with corporate headquarters in Fond du Lac, WI.

    "I was amazed when I received the call that we won the playground. All of our parks have playgrounds, except this one, so the timing to receive this is perfect," said Bryan Bogre, Strongsville Director of Parks, Recreation and Senior Services.

    Thousands of entries registered for the contest announced at the start of 2011, with only one honored person getting the exciting winning call. The playground is from Burke's new Voltage™ line, which combines the durability and flexibility of a 3 ˝" O.D. post system with the advanced design of both the exclusive KoreKonnect® direct-bolt clamp system and EZKonnect® self-leveling deck system. Other monthly prize winners in the Voltage playground contest received VISA gift cards and Apple iPods and will continue to be selected each month through December 31, 2011.

    "We are in the business of getting kids outside playing and moving. Voltage provides the ultimate in high-energy fun and extreme value in playgrounds, and we are proud to provide this prize to the Strongsville community," said Tim Ahern, BCI Burke CEO/owner.

    "We are continually focused on providing innovative ways for kids to be active and lead healthy lifestyles. This helps us fulfill our mission," he said.

    The Voltage design features 8 play events with a capacity for 48 kids ages 5 - 12 and is valued at more than $21,000. In partnership with BCI Burke specially trained playground consultants, Snider & Associates, Inc., the playground, including freight, will be provided at no charge. It will be installed in the Strongsville Youth Sports Park designed two years ago that features three little league baseball fields, a full size football field, a practice football field and a pavilion.

    Snider and Associates, with service in Ohio, Indiana, Western Pennsylvania and Michigan, has been providing top quality park, athletic and commercial playground equipment to the school, early education, parks and recreation industry since the 80's. Additional information can be found at
