Park Shade Structures

Nobody has to tell you that parks are vital building blocks of communities, ideal for enhancing green space, encouraging exercise, and creating safe places for kids and adults to gather and play. At Superior Shade, we create shade structures to enhance these outdoor areas, cooling and shading patrons as they share meals, get on swings, play with siblings, and more! These shades are ideal over a play area or splash pad. Because UV rays are serious threats to park-goers, with nearly five million people undergoing treatment for skin cancer each year, shade structures are more than nice amenities — they’re site improvement necessities for protecting people’s skin and creating comfortable and cool spaces. Add our recreation structures to your site to help protect guests from the nearly 90 percent of non-melanoma skin cancers caused by overexposure to the sun’s UV rays!

Park Canopies to Complete Your Open Spaces

Enjoy a full range of benefits at your outdoor park or community center by adding a beautiful park canopy or shade structure to your site! Superior Shade offers attractive, weather-resistant, durable shades that are perfect for playgrounds, water parks, community centers, and other settings. Plus, because our park and recreation structures are fully customizable, it’s easier than ever to develop the right shade structure for your needs. Take your pick of style, size, color and add-on options, whether that means a large, architecturally pleasing canopy for your location or a smaller shade sail for just your picnic table area. At Superior Shade, we have it all! Browse our online catalog to learn more.

Shade for Your Site Furnishings

Not only does shade reward your guests with a comfortable space to relax out of the sun's UV rays, a protective canopy can help to keep your site's outdoor amenities in top condition for years. Site furnishings such as family picnic tables, relaxed benches for seating, and waste receptacles can all benefit. With a shade canopy the paint on the surfaces of these products will hold up much longer. While it's true that everything out in the open air oxidizes over time, keeping the sun at bay fights half the battle for you thus preserving finishes for quite a bit longer than normal outdoor wear. Superior Shade uses fabric that offers a PTFE fiber thread for strength with a very low shrinkage rate. Our fabric carries a 10-year warranty against failure from significant fading and deterioration.
