Our Company and its History
Our team has a long history of childlike behavior. We eat, sleep and breathe all those climbers, slides, rocks and standards that most take for granted. Todd Lehman, Owner and Executive Creative Director has been designing truly unique play environments for 20+ years. After many years in the traditional post and platform playground industry, Todd started Cre8Play in 2005 to meet a growing demand for custom play environments.
Headquartered in Minneapolis, Minnesota, Cre8Play has global clientele. You don’t thrive in this industry like we have without the kind of smarts and creativity we champion at Cre8Play. Read on, you’ll see what we mean.
Hi, I’m Todd Lehman. I’m the ‘design guy’ behind this whole operation. There is nothing I enjoy more than creating fantastical worlds that blow people’s minds. I have spent my entire career building a company that embraces creativity and breaks the mold of traditional playground manufacturers. When you work with our team of skilled artists, I personally guarantee an experience is enjoyable, creative, and fun. Your project will be amazing, I’ll have it no other way. I look forward to working with you.
