Connecting local club pride to Kiwanis International’s 100th anniversary celebration by bringing playgrounds to communities
What is Landscape Structures? Landscape Structures Inc., a Kiwanis Vision Partner, has been creating innovative playground equipment since 1971. The Kiwanis family partners with Landscape Structures to bring play and playgrounds to communities, especially on its signature day of service: Kiwanis One Day.
Why LSI: Working together for kids Landscape Structures is partnering with Kiwanis because it shares Kiwanis’ goal to support the health and well- being of children. Together, Kiwanis and Landscape Structures can improve the lives of children through play! It all starts with giving children access to safe and fun outdoor playground equipment. Playing outdoors helps kids connect with nature in their own way.
