Catering for the developing needs of all children, SafePlay playgrounds offer a diverse range of active and passive play choices.

Providing a balanced array of activities is paramount when catering for children. Their diverse range of physical abilities demands that equipment be capable of allowing children to extend their skills. 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, older children have the increased incentive for play and social interaction.
