GARED Provides Custom Play Solutions for Indianapolis Children’s Museum

As an advocate for rejuvenating play in local communities, GARED was thrilled for the opportunity to partner with the Children’s Museum of Indianapolis, Indiana, to be a key supplier of sports equipment for the new addition to their complex, the Riley Children’s Health Sports Legends Experience. The unique sports experience combines physical fitness with sports history through 15 different exhibits, each focusing on a different sport, including racing, football, basketball, baseball, soccer, hockey, track, golf, and tennis.

The Children’s Museum had a very specific vision for the new addition to their facility. Their goal was to create the ultimate play experience for a variety of sports, to be enjoyed by children of all ages and abilities. GARED listened to their needs and its engineering team responded by crafting a unique design plan for sports equipment that would be inclusive and safe for all visitors, while at the same time keeping within the exhibit space restraints, project timeframe, and overall budget. This customized design approach, along with the manufacturing team’s expertise and ability to swiftly adapt to new challenges, allows GARED to continually provide tailored equipment solutions to maximize play in virtually any indoor or outdoor setting.

The project was successfully completed with the installation of seventeen GARED basketball hoops (eight of which are lowered for youth and all-ability play), two football goalposts, six youth soccer goals, and bleachers, providing a unique and memorable play experience for the local community to enjoy for years to come.
