Steve King, my friend and business colleague for 27 years (and fishing buddy for 20) will be honored this month by Shane’s Inspiration. Steve co-founded Landscape Structures in 1971 with Barb, his late wife, and is widely credited with having created the concept of continuous play in modern children’s playgrounds, a concept that has led to the component linked modern playstructure that we know today. Shane’s Inspiration is a national non-profit whose mission is to create inclusive playgrounds and programs that unite children of all abilities. At their annual gala, Steve will be honored with Shane’s Visionary Leadership Award.
