The opportunity to play creatively in high-quality environments is essential to the development of children. The addition of climbing playground equipment to your playground design means that children using the play area will be able to increase their balance and coordination,
Outdoor play equipment is generally aimed at children between 3 and 10 years of age, with parents or guardians with plenty of outside space. Most commercial-grade play structures are made of plastic, metal, wood, or a combination of these materials. I personally prefer wooden playground equipment due to its natural fit with nature. Wood and metal climbing equipment can fray and chip with age and use, which can increase the possibility for splinters and cuts.
Playgrounds have been around for over one hundred years. The extensive range of kid’s playground equipment vary significantly in size, from small and manageable pieces for toddlers through to large and special projects such as cars or boats. These awe-inspiring products are often used as a focal point within a play area, an easily recognised feature for children and adults to gravitate to.
Of course, age ranges vary between the many products on offer and, as you can imagine, the scale of your outdoor play equipment will correspond to the available space. With advancements in technology and standards, equipment is safer and made from sturdy materials.
Children's play areas are far from being the simple provision most people believe. There are many differing issues that can result from choosing the wrong piece of equipment. Choose wisely and you can have an investment that will last for years to come.
