Playground

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia Jump to navigation Jump to search  This article is about an area for play. For other uses, see Playground (disambiguation).

A playground, playpark, or play area is a place specifically designed to enable children to play  there. It is typically outdoors. While a playground is usually designed  for children, some target other age groups. Berlin's Preu?enpark for  example is designed for people aged 70 or higher.[citation needed] A playground might exclude children below a certain age.

Modern playgrounds often have recreational equipment such as the seesaw, merry-go-round, swingset, slide, jungle gym, chin-up bars, sandbox, spring rider, trapeze rings, playhouses, and mazes, many of which help children develop physical coordination, strength, and flexibility, as well as providing recreation and enjoyment and supporting social and emotional development. Common in modern playgrounds are play structures that link many different pieces of equipment.

Playgrounds often also have facilities for playing informal games of adult sports, such as a baseball diamond, a skating arena, a basketball court, or a tether ball.

Public playground equipment refers to equipment intended for use in the play areas of parks, schools,  childcare facilities, institutions, multiple family dwellings,  restaurants, resorts, and recreational developments, and other areas of  public use.

In some parts of the United States, the term tot lot may be used.[1]

A type of playground called a playscape is designed to provide a safe environment for play in a natural setting.
