Leave Some Open Play Space – Having one of those really nice custom jungle gyms installed will certainly delight your kids but they still need a little bit of plain old open play space as well. A simple grassy area is fine as it will make a great venue for tag, ball games and whatever else the children can dream up. Having a few trees planted around this area for shade is something to consider as well.
Now by this I mean if your children are under the age of three you will not want to get a playground set that will sit for three years until they reach the age that they will enjoy the outdoor play set that you spent large amounts of money on. However, if they are older then you will want to take into consideration all the available features that it has that will keep them playing on it for years to come.
The natural playgrounds are more charming, welcoming, accessible, and reject the idea of discrimination. Children are bound to play certain games in the commercial playground and this is a practice that restricts their mental capabilities and curbs creativity. On the contrary, a natural playground promotes free play where children are motivated to utilize their imagination and enjoy free play. Kids do not like to be dictated; this is a natural phenomenon that exists in them.
The equipment has to be both proposed and planted very vigilantly. There has to be a proper division of the play area for all age groups like toddlers, pre school students, small children and adolescents. When the plan is to make a large commercial playground one should know that for example the toddler equipment cannot be placed near to the skate board parks.
Hanging apparatus usually conjures up memories of those hours spent trying to master the monkey bars as a child. Monkey bars remain one of the most challenging pieces of playground equipment and are now available in a variety of lengths of solid bars, swinging trapeze, parallel bars and up and over bars. These pieces of equipment help children build up their upper body strength as well as providing a sense of achievement once they have completed them.
Some playgrounds are also simple soil or grass, but this comes with problems as well. Soil becomes hard-packed over time, especially with children running around on it, and in the long run it may even end up as hard as asphalt.
