Children love to play; that goes without saying. The interaction, excitement and fun of a playground often make it a particularly favourite spot for youngsters to use. An open environment tailor-made to allow children the chance to let loose and run free; playing in a playground is far less rigidly structured than doing team sports or Physical Education lessons at school. This is why going to a playground is often the top choice for many active children.
We can all remember the playgrounds from our own childhoods. We remember the excitement and how utterly carefree we felt as we tried to swing right over the bar; the exhaustion as we strained to make it from one end of the monkey bars to the other without falling; the laughter as we dizzily fell about after being spun around on the carousel. These kinds of playgrounds are wonderful and their survival to this day is testament to the happiness they have brought to numerous generations of children the world over. There is however, a new kind of playground emerging with increasing popularity.
Gaining particular prominence in America, outdoor playgrounds are the latest craze to be sweeping this generations’ youth. Deemed as a great way to rekindle the often absent appreciation of nature in kids these days, outdoor playgrounds opt for equipment made of natural materials like trees and shrubbery. Thought to be especially beneficial for children living in urban areas and busy cities, the natural play areas are supposedly great for levelling out the experience for everyone. With no immediately obvious way to interact with each part of the playground, each child starts on a neutral footing, with no physical prowess able to cause a case of unwanted leadership within the group.
While an open-air, completely natural playground may not appeal to all, it does at least reinforce the importance of collaborative play areas for children. Better than that, they show that when designing and creating a playground, imagination and original thinking can be the key to building an unforgettable experience for its users.
