Customer Testimonials

Buell Recreation has been a great partner to work with on various projects. We have replaced multiple playgrounds with Buell Recreation; the whole team is awesome we especially enjoy working with Trent Connor and Rachel Gora. We appreciate the time they spend providing us with playground designs and ideas that allow for every student, especially those with disabilities, that we can provide to our schools so the students may provide their input on a playground before we purchase one the the school.

Buell has also assisted us in creating procedures for installing new playgrounds that include performing site pre-construction walks prior to the start of any project and a final project walk once construction is completed. These walks always include our Risk Management Team; this process has been amazing for us and provides us with a level of transparency that is rarely seen with other contractors.

"Working with Buell Recreation was a wonderful experience. We decided in October to put in a playground for our elementary school and we were told by our district that it had to be done either during the Christmas break or in the summer. It had to be times when the children were not present. For several reasons, we needed it to be the earlier date."

"Buell Recreation has always been a pleasure to work with. We have replaced multiple playgrounds with Buell Recreation, the team is awesome. I appreciate the time they spend creating ideas for playgrounds that can be proposed to our schools so the students have a say in their playground before we purchase anything. Buell has also allowed us to create procedures in the process of installing new playgrounds. We have pre-walks, and once installed, we have a final install walk with our Risk Management team. This has been awesome."

"I have not seen, but heard report of the Skypods being installed earlier at Errol Hassell Elementary!" I want to thank you so much for getting this in before the end of the year. The kids are going to be amazed on Monday! - AND - the Fifth grade class will get credit for their part in this as a class gift. I know delays were caused on our end, and you worked around that and managed to beat a very tight deadline. Your company was very easy to work with and if I ever have the opportunity again, I will recommend Buell Recreation. Thanks again!"

"Install went fantastic! Installers were flexible and kind to our students. Our students had MANY questions and they were so patient to take a couple of moments to answer them. This remodel is one of the biggest things yet for our students, so their questions are very important to them! As they watched the construction, students commented, "Mrs. Schroeder, It is SO BEAUTIFUL!". We are currently working on the track, but are hoping that by the end of the week, we will be able to teach the rules and expectations so that kids can start playing! Thanks again!"

"I initially contacted Buell Recreation for information on shade structures to cover our old play structure. Doug Buell gathered information about our current play yard and presented multiple options to fit our individual needs. We moved forward with an entirely new play structure that had shade umbrellas already attached. Doug and his team were extremely helpful throughout the entire process and he was always available to talk when I had questions. Thanks to Buell Recreation the children at our facility can enjoy playing outside the entire school years."

"Buell Recreation was amazing to work with! They took the time to listen to our ideas, needs and wants, then visited our site and came up with several great options for us. They communicated perfectly during every step of the process and made us feel like we were their most important client. We could not have had a better experience in designing and choosing playground equipment for our school!"

"Buell Recreation is AMAZING! We worked with them on a complete overhaul of our lower playground at St. Thomas More School in Portland, OR. Doug and his team worked tirelessly as consultants, engineers and artists to insure that the design and installation of our Burke structure -- and really, the playability of our entire area -- was perfectly suited to the needs, abilities and desires of our students. Doug even brought a designer on site to make real time adjustments to our design so we could get a real feel for the impact of all potential options. Now THAT is customer service!

Thanks to Buell Recreation, we were able to be 100% confident in every decision we made from the two necessary perspectives: safety and fun. We wholeheartedly recommend Buell Recreation and are grateful for the terrific spirit of partnership they brought to our project. Our kids are excited every day to get outside and play in their "new" area. Our whole community thanks Buell Recreation!"
