It’s difficult to find non-commercial playground information. And I find that frustrating. A playground doesn’t have to cost a million bucks and come in a box. In fact, it’s better if it doesn’t. As such, playgrounds are under-recognized as an artistic medium.
Well just about everybody loves a playground.
What could be some of the crazy designs that you would not expect to be a playground, but could provide hours of play?
Some of the first things that pop into my mind a fairly common places that I have experienced myself. Alot of these, I admit, are unrealistic, but the point is to look for unexpected places for inspiration:
- a drainage pipe
- a barricade
- the base of bushes
- a ditch
The point is that a child’s imagination makes the playground work. A playground becomes dull when it fail to meet a child’s imagination.
