About Us

Our Philosophy

At NSP3, we believe that play is an essential part to a child’s development, and playgrounds are essential to their communities. Because of their importance, playgrounds must not only give kids a place to play they must do so while being safe, accessible, environmentally friendly, easy to maintain, and attractive. NSP3 builds playgrounds to these specifications on a daily basis, and we are constantly working to improve each of these areas in order to keep playgrounds at the heart of community, and keep kids playing.

Our History

NSP3 was founded in 2000 as Northstate Playgrounds offering equipment and design for commercial playground projects. Since then we have provided our products and services to assist in the construction and maintenance of over 400 playgrounds across Northern California. As our experience with playground projects grew we began to branch out into park and public works projects by offering Shade Shelters, Site Amenities, Surfacing, and Athletic products.
In 2005, we changed our name to NSP3, to show our commitment to all things Parks, Playgrounds, and Public Works. In the same year, we became an exclusive dealer in Northern California for Playworld Systems by offering their quality lines of playground equipment.
In 2011, we began to realize a noted need for quality, inexpensive playground surfacing products. So, we cut out the middle man and began to buy our surfacing products directly from the manufacturers. This dramatically reduced costs, and today we now offer some of the best prices for surfacing products in California.
Today, we are a company that is constantly evolving to the needs of our customers. In August 2011, we launched this site to better serve you by providing an easy way to learn about our products, get the latest park and playground news, and easily request pricing for park and playground projects.
