Children are the ones who are the least taken into consideration in modern planning and design – whether it’s a public park, a shopping mall, a neighbourhood development, or even entertainment. And this is a global trend. The tendency is to give them anything and they should be just fine. In most cases it would be a small playground that is hardly enough in terms of space – not to mention functionality.
“Anything goes” should not be something that we settle for and want for our children as parents, educators, designers, architects and decision makers. We should strive for much more!
Imagine communities where families have easy access to the next level high quality play spaces for children of all ages – play and public areas offering children exciting and engaging learning experiences that go far beyond just usual playgrounds.
These areas would offer a wide variety of contexts appealing to children’s natural gifts, diverse talents, and their preferred forms of expression.
Imagine communities where play and learning happen not only at playgrounds, but also in all public areas, parks, and even community libraries. These are the new generation play spaces that inspire children to safely create, explore their gifts, and express themselves. This is where the whole families can enjoy their quality time together.
