Back-to-nature play areas part of a growing nationwide movement.
Design and construction of “natural playgrounds,” imaginative play spaces that aims to help kids get connected to nature, are becoming standard. Offering an alternative to standard plastic, concrete, and steel models, the playgrounds incorporate natural wonders such as fallen trees, local horticulture, and art. The construction of natural play spaces are growing in popularity and have started to make their way into public parks, schools, and childcare centres across the country.
The revamped play area will include plenty of greenery and trees, along with a climbing rock, a sideways-growing tree, swings, a sand box, a creek with an old-fashioned hand pump, and a community garden. The benefits that natural play spaces can provide children and communities, and can rattle off countless studies that link exposure to nature with everything from decreased rates of obesity, bullying, vandalism, promiscuity, to higher IQ, balance, and agility scores.
