In this session, we will examine playground trends that create kid magnets; that facilitate multi-generational interaction, support physical activity or creative place-making environments that tell a community story and return economic impact to their communities. This session provides participants an understanding of the key components influencing the needs and desires of designers, planners and users in creating innovative play environments. Participants will be able to utilize this knowledge to vision, plan and budget for implementing successful playground environments that best serve their communities well into the future.
- Identify emerging trends influencing playground design.
