Song Bird

The Songbird is a whimsical and familiar form. At six feet high, it is so much larger than life, yet inviting and playful as a playground centrepiece. In plan view, the bird’s shape tapers from tail to head, and the tail twists to add personality.

After 30+ years in the industry, Blake Hobson and the Midstates team have selected superior products and built a team of qualified and personable professionals that work together to design and build play and recreational spaces. 

We’re committed to designing inclusive, innovative play spaces that give opportunities for all ages and abilities to play together. We love being a part of building community spaces that bring people together, giving them common spaces to gather and play. Our planning process involves thoughtful and intentional focus on incorporating opportunities for kids to learn through play with the equipment selected. 

  • Inclusivity for all ages and ranges

  • Unparalleled innovation

  • Academic learning through play

  • Fostering community

We believe that the most valuable thing we can do when creating playgrounds is to design them in such a way that accommodates a wide range of abilities. That is because inclusion is about more than just accessibility – it is about providing opportunities for people of all ages and capabilities to play together in the same playground environment.
