The Parkworks Team

We’re the MAKR Group’s on the ground recreation space specialists for Western Canada.

Formerly RecTec Industries in BC, and Playworks in Alberta, Saskatchewan, Manitoba, and NWT, we’ve merged together to form a supplier supergroup. With over 30 years of experience, 1000’s of installations, and teams strategically placed throughout your region, we’re here to help the development of inclusive, innovative and exceptional park spaces.

Here's the rundown:

We're a tiny piece of a bigger puzzle, but an important piece

We’re a group of MAKRs and our purpose, our common goal, our passion, is to connect communities through play and social experiences. We do this through the group of companies that “makr” up the MAKR Group:

Parkworks, Waterplay and Wekid Mfg

Our companies are fuelled by joy and fun, and daily doses of laughter sprinkled between the serious work we do.

A recipe we think helps us do our job that much better. If you call us, we'll be helpful. If you laugh with us, we'll laugh with you because that's the way we like to do business. If you're looking for suits and ties and a corporate mentality, it's probably not Parkworks. But you'll be hard-pressed to find a more devoted, skilled, professional group or people to invest your time with.

Our Values

We CARE about the projects we work on and the people we connect with—and our values are a figurative sword we’re willing to die on (figuratively… we just want to make that very clear).

  • Courage

    Being courageous is more than being brave, it means doing the right thing despite our fears or who is watching. People, environment, the big things, and the little things that make a world of difference. We promise to speak up and do the right thing, even when it’s hard. Courageous people and courageous acts change the world and that’s what we’re looking to do. #GoUndercat (underdog is so overused)

  • Attitude

    Attitude is everything. Things won’t always work the way we want them to, that’s life, but you better believe we’ll make some darn good lemonade in the process—that’s a pinky promise. Life is short, sh*t happens and failure doesn’t define us. Opportunity is always knocking, lightly tapping, or silently skulking—we’ll find it.

  • Relationships

    We’re not talking ‘Til Death Do Us Part, we’re talking human connections. Real human connections. Our family, friends, partners and communities are everything. People come first in all our decision making and building relationships is the heart of our business.

  • Equity

    Where we start from isn’t always equal, and that’s unjust, plain and simple. Stick your pinky out because we’re making a second promise, the places we work, the connections we build, and the outcomes we help create are inclusive and diverse, always. The world is a better place when we find ways to recognize imbalances and work hard to correct the course. We’ll need your help with this one.

Protecting what we’re passionate about.

Our work culture is a direct reflection of the passion we have for communities and our hope for a socially just future. The MAKR Group is committed to doing our part and inspiring others to do theirs. We envision a world where wages are fair, socioeconomic barriers are removed, and the environment is healthy and thriving.
