About Us

Over 37 years ago, Bob Lacroix, a native Manitoban, began building wonderful playgrounds in and around the Winnipeg area. Today, with the same philosophy of doing it the right way, the first time, Playgrounds-R-Us has evolved into the premier turnkey park and playground facilitator in Manitoba, Saskatchewan and Northwestern Ontario, Canada, with more than 1500 completed projects.


Bob along with his partner in play Kim, has recently transitioned into full time retirement. While his leadership, perspective, enthusiasm and presence will definitely be missed by all, Bob has passed on the company to his two sons, Michael and Matthew Lacroix.
