If you have any experience in trying to figure
out what children will think is fun, you know it's more a trial and error
But one basic thing that is usually successful is to provide things to climb on and over.
That was the basis of this play area. From the shaky bridge to the winding path, there is room to run and play.
This particular play area was designed to be
built in three phases. The results you see here show the end of phase one.
The next phase would be to add in plants and flowers to fill in all the areas where they are lacking.
The final phase would have an optional waterfall that splashes into the stream that surrounds the island,
plus a perimeter fence of some sort to help define the play area from the rest of the yard.
Utilizing an area where there are already mature trees is a added bonus and gives immediate shade.
If more space were available, an elevated platform, perhaps a fort, could be built and would be another big attraction for adventurous children.
