Adventure Playgrounds

Lifelong Learning!

Play is a universal, cross-cultural and necessary attribute of childhood, essential for development and for learning. Play is intrinsic to children’s natures, but still needs support and attention from the adults around them.

Currently, children use the time of being children to prepare themselves as robots to answer “exams” with pre-established responses to the test.
‘Risky’ Playgrounds Are Making a Comeback.

The modern playground has become mind-numbingly standard-issue. There’s a movement afoot to bring “adventure” back into play.

The information age has ushered in an era of fear about children’s well-being, shifting norms heavily towards constant oversight and nearly impossible standards of safety.

One casualty of that trend has been the playground, which has become mind-numbingly standard-issue—with the same type of plastic swing sets and slides—designed to minimize harm, rather than maximize enjoyment.
