Global Playground Trends
PLAY SPACE DESIGN
Looking at the leading trends in play space design there are many influences driving these movements. Playgrounds are becoming more than a place for children to play. They are a place to develop and build physical, cognitive, and social skills. We have embraced new trends that focus on these key concepts and are currently applying them to our playgrounds.
Destination playgrounds are signature, one-of-a-kind play spaces that like no other playground in the world. They are typically part of the local hub and provide an increase in commerce due to their unique design, resulting in visitors from other communities joining in the fun. Destination playgrounds define your community.

NATURE INSPIRED PLAYGROUNDS
Most Americans live in an urban sprawl. Nature inspired playground equipment encourages children to connect with the natural surroundings as they navigate through giant boulders, tree stumps, and logs with their friends. Let’s bring children back to nature!

Integrating shade on the playground is not only protecting children for dangerous UV rays, but is helping kids stay more active throughout the year and therefore helping prevent childhood obesity. A climbing structure, swings, or even our Zipkrooz can be integrated with shade.

Music is a universal language that any can play. Our Rhapsody outdoor music line is tuned to Major C so any prodigy or novice can start jamming to help release stress with a drum, xylophone or chimes.
Aquatic play allows children too young to swim the ability to stay active and engage in water, learning about texture, gravity, and fluid abilities, splash pads have a great scientific and therapeutic benefit to children who engage in it. Aquatic play is a great way to stay cool from the summer heat. Feel free to take a look at our Aquatix products.
