What is urban play equipment?
Urban-friendly playgrounds have many factors to connect with: towering architecture, bustling people, ample excitement, and the need for built-in resilience. The equipment should reflect these requirements.
With the right equipment in place, urban playgrounds can not only provide fun, safe place for kids to express themselves, they can also stand up to the potential wear and tear of city environment.
These limited spaces don’t present a challenge, but an opportunity to provide play value while improving the aesthetics of the environment. Urban play equipment can invoke exploration and imagination whilst complementing the surrounding landscape.
Why is urban play equipment important?
As our cities expand before us, and hard landscaping becomes the norm, finding the time and space for the type of imaginative and inspiring play children require is becoming increasingly challenging.
Kids need spaces to run free, to explore with their friends, to dream their dreams and act out their imaginations. Playgrounds have always provided this service. With modern equipment and innovative playground designers there is no reason an urban setting should stop playgrounds from being created for local children to enjoy,
Put simply, urban play equipment is important because kids everywhere need play. A well designed urban playground not only enriches the lives of children, these spaces become important community hubs for the entire neighbourhood. Playgrounds are destinations full of energy, personality and joy.
