Playgrounds

Aquatic Playground in Sawara, Katori City, JAPAN

It is recognized that children develop many skills in the playground: social skills, gross motor skills and life skills that are carried forward into their adulthood.

Outdoor playgrounds are among the most important environments for children outside the home. Play is essential for healthy development, and free, spontaneous play that can occur in playgrounds is the most beneficial type of play.
Research by Robin Moore (Childhood's Domain: Play and Place, 1986) shows that playgrounds need to have areas that children can claim for themselves, like a bush area or a water play area. "Some play must remain entirely child driven, with parents either not present or as passive observers, because play builds some of the individual assets children need to develop and remain resilient. "

A playscape, shown in the photo, provides children with this necessary feeling of ownership as parent's are unlikely to climb in the water area.
