Playgrounds are also social spaces. Kids of all ages work together to create imaginative worlds on the equipment and can learn to solve problems with their peers while engaging in physically challenging activities. They may copy and learn from older children, or they can teach younger ones how to use a new piece of equipment.

A key component of a safe playground is safety surfacing, which must be soft enough to cushion kids’ falls and provide traction for their feet. It’s also important to have a clear path of exit from the equipment in case it becomes unsafe for any reason. Finally, the equipment itself should be durable and free of rust or any sharp edges that could cut kids.
