Popular Terms for Playgrounds

What kid doesn’t enjoy a playground? It’s not enough for a playground to be fun, it also has to be safe, too. Today, there are lots of safety features and equipment used in the construction of playgrounds to keep kids safe while playing. From merry go rounds to swing sets, playgrounds are a hub of activity for little ones on up to pre-teens. There are some popular terms you should know before beginning your search for playground equipment, whether you’re a residential home owner and want a small set-up for your back yard, or whether you’re a recreation department director who needs to outfit several playgrounds across the city or at schools.

  • Rubber Mulch – An alternative to grass or traditional bark mulch, rubber mulch is made from recycled scrap tires. It’s not only better for the environment, it provides a softer landing for kids on the equipment.
  • Spring Rider – Also called a spring rocker, these devices involve a metal spring beneath a riding structure mounted on a plastic or wooden beam. The rider sits on the character, such as a horse or whale, and rocks or bounces back and forth.
  • Trim Trails – Obstacle courses comprising balance beams, hurdles, ladder walks, pole climbs, and vaults. These are designed to challenge slightly older kids to test their agility.
  • Swing Set Mats – Durable mats placed underneath individual swings for kids to step onto when they mount and dismount the swings. These mats prevent wear and tear on the mulch below, avoiding that tell-tale dip.
  • Sensory Playgrounds – Ideal for children with sensory processing disorders and varying levels of autism, these types of playgrounds offer equipment with exploration and discovery at the forefront. They may feature stationary cyclers, crawl tunnels, ascending cables, small merry go rounds, and two-sided tracing panels.

    A playground is an area specifically designed for children to play in. Although customarily outdoors, playgrounds can also be found indoors to accommodate colder climates and winter months. Typically, playgrounds have play equipment such as slides, swings, merry-go-rounds, see-saws, sandboxes, and other jungle gym like structures. They also have sand or rubber ground surfaces to protect children that may fall from obtaining injuries. For older children, playgrounds may be remodeled to include basketball courts, climbing walls, and tether ball courts. Many playgrounds are found in community parks all over the world. They can be an addition to acres of grass and rolling hills or by themselves in crowded city centers. Playgrounds can also be private gyms, built in individual home yards for family recreation. If you have children and would like to add this fun structure for their entertainment, there are many contractors who specialize in making the perfect swing and slide sets. Your children will love having their own customized park right in their back yard. Before contacting a playground designer, first do some research about the topic. Access your favorite search engine and type in related keywords such as playground designs, customized jungle gyms, outdoor kid's play equipment, school yard recreation, and park structures. Look into various bench and slide designs and find out what is appropriate for different ages. Think about longevity to order to understand what your children will still love playing with throughout the years. It is important to know what will work for your family and your children before you contact a contractor to build you your perfect playground.
