Asheville Playgrounds Owners Evelyn & Jerry

Welcome to Asheville Playgrounds

Asheville Playgrounds is the South and Southeast’s premier designer of custom, handcrafted playgrounds and tree houses. We construct our projects for developments, parks and campgrounds, schools, churches and backyards. In addition, we specialize in architectural theme playgrounds and rustic natural playgrounds for residential or commercial use. Developing each design with your dreams in mind, we hand-build each unique playground with materials that are time-tested for strength and durability as well as resistance to the elements. These include naturally rot-resistant locust wood, pressure-treated lumber, recycled plastic lumber and composite decking.

We are currently designing playgrounds for installation in 2024!

  • "We've had our playground from Asheville Playgrounds for over a year, and my 3­ year old still talks about "Jerry and Evelyn." That he still remembers their names means that they left quite an impression on him! Evelyn came to our house and spent quite a bit of time working with us to site and design of our playground. The end result involved a completely different location than we originally had in mind and it has been perfect. She thought of lots of details such as the benefit of integrating the playground into the hillside and having adequate tree cover to shade my little ones. Jerry and Evelyn are very pleasant people and worked in a timely manner. They are also playful, which makes sense given what they do. We love our playground, use it almost every day, and would heartily recommend Asheville Playgrounds." - Michelle F. from Asheville, NC
  • "This company built us the playhouse of our dreams! Working with Evelyn, Jerry and their team at Asheville Playgrounds was simply a pleasure. During our first meeting at my home, Evelyn listened intently and took extensive notes. The design she came back with was almost perfect! Most importantly, she worked with me for the next two weeks to get the design to match what I wanted exactly, and the end result is the playhouse of our dreams. I would recommend Asheville Playgrounds to anyone." - Katie N. from Asheville, NC
  • "Wow! You will not be disappointed. I have had the pleasure of working with Asheville Playgrounds on two separate park projects. Their play equipment brings a unique characteristic to the parks and I am convinced that without their involvement those parks would not be as great as they are." - Jeff C. from Raleigh, NC
