When planning and building a playground for public use, it’s important to cover all of your bases. Playgrounds should be fun and safe, and they should also accommodate a wide range of ages and abilities.
Playgrounds are typically associated with a child’s well-being, but they also provide plenty of benefits to adults. Parents get a well-deserved break from entertaining their kids while keeping the house clean.
Exercising outdoors offers a unique set of benefits that you can’t get from an indoor workout. Many people are aware of these unique benefits but they lack functional spaces where they can exercise outdoors.
A playground is a major investment, so it makes smart financial sense to protect it at all costs. By regularly inspecting and performing needed maintenance on your playground, you can extend the life of your equipment.
Playground safety surfacing creates spaces where kids can run and play without getting hurt. This surface lies underneath and around playground structures, swings, slides, climbers and other equipment to protect kids if they fall.
Playgrounds are plenty of fun during the summer, but kids can get overheated on hot summer days and besides adding water just sounds like FUN. Adding water play equipment and spray features adjacent to playgrounds or in the community, keeps kids cool and busy during the summer months.
Park playgrounds and sports fields are an important part of any community. They are the places where kids gather to play and explore, compete and build confidence while parents are able to meet others and socialize.
A common challenge for communities is how to keep their parks and playgrounds fun and entertaining for all ages. After all, there are only so many things to do at a given park. Fortunately, playground companies like Cunningham Recreation continue to offer new and innovative equipment to keep parks interesting.
