5 things you need to know before designing your next playground

In our opinion, every child and every community is unique. That is why it is imperative that each new playground design is tailored specifically to the needs and requirements of it’s surrounding environment. A high value playground is conceptually designed to ensure every corner of the play space offers stimulating and challenging activities to support active, passive, creative and emotional play.

To achieve this, each piece of play equipment must be carefully selected both individually and collectively to offer maximum play opportunities, while effectively coordinating with landscape designs to encourage family interaction and increased play.

Top 5 consideration for increasing play value

  1. The children who will use the playground
  2. The playground site and immediate surroundings
  3. The desired skills and experience being promoted
  4. Playground division and layout to best support different forms of play
  5. Equipment and activity integrated to stimulate the children’s experience and competences.
