Providing a balanced array of activities is paramount when catering for juniors. Their diverse range of physical abilities demands that equipment be capable of allowing children to extend their abilities. The inclusion of passive play zones and areas where adults can interact is also important.
Keeping playgrounds interesting and fun for older children can be a significant challenge. By including a range of play activities with graduated levels of physical challenge as well as spaces for socialising or just “hanging out”, we can make the playground a place that older children will choose to go and will appreciate.
