About Us

Great Western Experience

In 1964 Rich Boyce threw some catalogs in the trunk of his Volkswagen and Rich Boyce Recreation Inc. was born. Rich became the exclusive Game Time sales representative in the states of Utah and Wyoming. In an effort to grow his business Rich later added Idaho, Montana, and Nevada. Rich soon found managing a territory with geography so large became increasingly more difficult, so in 1992 he hired Steve Kyriopoulos who was at the time the City of Logan Parks Director. In 1999 Rich turned over day-to-day operations to Steve and his spouse Joan Kyriopoulos. At that time Rich Boyce Recreation Inc took on the new name of Great Western Park and Playground Inc. Rich remains a constant and integral part of the Great Western team and represents the areas of Northern Nevada and Northern Utah.

In 2004 sales were struggling in the
California market so Game Time again turned to Steve and Joan to expand their positive sphere of influence in recapturing this very important market. Great Western has now been Game Time’s exclusive representatives for 47 years. Game Time has been the leading manufacturer of commercial playground equipment for 82 years and counting. Great Western represents several complementary lines of commercial park equipment including shelters, site furnishings, and bleachers.
