60 Years of Family Fun
Bergfeld is St. Louis’ most trusted equipment installer. We’ve been serving our community for over 60 years, making lifetime memories by connecting local families to the highest-quality, longest-lasting equipment on the market.
We are proud to have installed over 10,000 playsets in St. Louis, offering customizable playground equipment designed to suit every family’s needs. In addition to playsets, we’ve been providing families with the safest trampolines and high-quality basketball hoops you can find.
We’ve been a family-operated business for over six decades. Our founder, Chuck Bergfeld, learned the ins and outs of outdoor recreational equipment back in the early 60s. Straight out of college, he opened his own business, Bergfeld Recreation. In the 80s, he began selling commercial grade trampolines, basketball hoops, and residential wooden playlists. Since then, Chuck’s daughter Christy & Second Mile Service have taken over Chuck’s legacy to serve the St. Louis community with top-quality play and sport equipment.
Our backyard courts offer you the safest surfaces to play and train available. Shock-absorbing technology reduces the stress on joints and bones during even aggressive play, allowing you, your family and friends to get all the benefits of heavy cardio workouts on the court without worrying about the long-term risks.
The lateral stability provided by our PickleGrip™ technology is unmatched, leading to better traction for players. Our DuraCourt™ line can give you top performance no matter the weather conditions.
We aim to minimize wear-and-tear on our players because our courts are built for decades of playtime. Our Triple Traction Tread™ gives you three layers of protection again loss of traction. With all this technology on your side, you can rest easy knowing a Bergfeld court has the top safety features on the market.
Our in-ground basketball systems all come with tempered safety glass backboards, which are constructed through a special process of extreme heating and cooling which results in harder, more durable, and safer glass that provides a consistent rebound surface across the whole backboard. This glass is the same kind used by NCAA and NBA backboards, so you are receiving a product that carries the full trust of these lauded institutions. The glass itself is then finished with a full perimeter aluminum trim, which provides one more layer of added safety, stability, and security.
