About Us


Bergfeld Recreation has been family owned and operated for nearly six decades after my father, Chuck Bergfeld, opened our home office on Manchester Road.

Throughout the 1960s and 1970s, we solidified ourselves as St. Louis’ leading playground experts, concentrating on commercial playground equipment for parks and schools.

In the 1980s, when wooden playsets started to be introduced to homeowners, we were the first company to offer these high-quality, residential systems to families in the St. Louis area. When I was in high school and college, my summer job was installing wooden playsets. I’ve seen the evolution of our industry, and the products get better every year!

Since our beginning in 1961, we’ve continually broadened the products and installation services we offer to include commercial and residential playground equipment, safety surfacing, basketball goals, trampolines, site furnishings, all types of sports equipment, day care equipment, fencing of all types, shelters and much more!

At Bergfeld Recreation, you’ll notice we include as much information as possible to help your purchasing decision. We truly believe an educated customer is the best customer. With the Bergfeld team, we encourage you to ask as many questions as you may have. Come to our showroom and take a test swing on one of our many playset display models. Shoot some hoops at our showroom, or jump on one of our premium Alley Oop trampolines. We realize you’re also interested in equipment longevity, safety and value-based prices, and that’s what we deliver.

We travel throughout the Midwest to install all types of playground and park products in Missouri, Kansas, Nebraska, Iowa, Illinois, Tennessee and Arkansas. Give us a call at (800) 336-9697, and let us help you scope out and plan your project.

We encourage you to truly compare our products with any others. We’re very proud to offer an extensive line of innovative, durable products in each of the most popular categories!

Feel free to call or email me personally; I’ll gladly assist and point you in the right direction!
