Playgrounds are where children learn by doing. A good playground engages the imagination, keeps the children active, and helps them develop social skills. The best playgrounds have no sharp edges, possess safety features to lessen the chance of injury, are durable, and can grow with the child. Sets with canopies or other shaded areas can give children a break from the relentless sun. Wooden playgrounds are beautiful, but they require more upkeep than metal sets. The most appealing playground sets offer a wide variety of activities from a clubhouse with a chalkboard and a captain's wheel to a climbing wall with a cargo net and a slide. Don't forget the swings. To reduce the chance of injuries, make sure your playground is properly installed.
