Creating Extraordinary Playgrounds – August 18th @ 1PM ET
What does it take to create an extraordinary playground? What strategies should you put into place so that your newest playground is visited by families from the neighborhood and from the next county over? In this webinar, we will show a variety of built playgrounds. We will see how playgrounds fit into bigger settings; how theming makes a statement; how surfacing or one or two pieces of unique equipment can make something ordinary, or extraordinary; and how creating multi-generational and/or inclusive playgrounds draws families from all over.
At the end of this presentation, participants will be able to
1. Discuss how water play, height, and unique equipment can help create an extraordinary playground.
2. Identify small details that can take an ordinary playground to an extraordinary one.
3. Explain how playgrounds that reach the widest audience can often be extraordinary ones.
4. Understand the importance of child development when designing a playground
