Making Outdoor Play Second Nature
Did you know that 75% of kids in the U.S. and U.K. spend less time outdoors than prison inmates? Whether it’s due to the rise in organized sports, the growing addiction to smartphones, or the lack of walkable park access, one thing is clear: the outdoors has become uncharted territory for today’s children. And yet, research shows that contact with nature makes people happier and healthier.
So how do we encourage our kids to get back outside into nature and play? By reintroducing them to nature in a familiar, friendly way.
By choosing the right playground equipment and adding some custom touches, you can let kids experience the same great play value nature provides, even if there’s no actual trees or rocks around. Even in a more rural, wooded park these components provide a safe, but exciting outlet for outdoor play.
It’s All In The Details
When set against the landscape, our nature-inspired components blend in seamlessly, mimicking natural textures, colors, and scale to provide the look and feel of real wood and stone. Molded-in fossils provide extra areas for discovery and encourage kids to appreciate the little details.
Made To Last
Glass fiber reinforced concrete (GFRC) allows us to achieve realistic sensory details while providing a product that won’t rot, corrode, or attract pests like real natural elements. These components are ultra-durable, designed to withstand the elements and years of adventurous play with little to no maintenance.
