Our Team

Eric & Allison Hasley

Following Joani and Norvel’s retirement, Hasley Recreation transitioned ownership to Eric and Allison Hasley. Eric Hasley began selling in the North Georgia and Metro Atlanta Area over 15 years ago. He still maintains this territory and continues to work closely with our long-time customers as well as our newer ones. Eric is extremely proficient in AutoCad and designing unique playgrounds. He has worked on many feature projects such as the four natural parks in Forsyth County (Caney Creek, Haw Creek, Old Atlanta and Chattahoochee Pointe), Greater Atlanta Christian School, numerous City of Roswell Parks, Etowah River Park and many more. His design specialties have led him to be a member of several custom design committees where he has helped develop new playground equipment components for Miracle and Rocks and Ropes. Over the years, Eric has worked hard to build Hasley Recreation into Georgia’s Premier Recreation Equipment Company. In 2006, he was approached by Poligon Park Architecture to have Hasley Recreation become their manufacturer’s representative in the State of Georgia and that was subsequently followed by Wabash Valley/Urbanscape, Vortex, Rocks and Ropes and Greenfields. With the addition of the new manufacturers, Eric brought in his wife, Allison Hasley, to learn the new products and assist with the ordering and management of new projects. In less than a year, Allison had become an integral part in the business; managing multi-faceted projects, coordinating shipping, bid estimating and assembly and much more. Allison became a second office manager to Joani and is now the sole office manager while also maintaining her duties of being the controller and manger of large scope projects.

Sienna Hasley is the “Official Playground Tester”. She also assists occasionally in design work by giving her opinion on components she likes and whether or not she feels a design is fun enough. Her favorite components right now are the Mega Tower slides, the Rocks and Ropes and the Jax Web. Sienna attends Buford Academy and loves being part of the Buford Wolves Family. Sienna is very active in gymnastics and competes on the Competitive Team Gymnastics at Gymnastix Training Center.
