Playground design contributes to the overall utility and functionality of playgrounds.
The playground is an essential part of any school and every community. Children spend many hours of their day occupying themselves with what the playground has to offer. The nearby neighborhood may enjoy both its appearance and its utility.
A playground design that includes well marked game activities provide increased motivation for children to enter into an activity and become engaged in purposeful play, thus cutting down on playground confrontations.When color is added to game markings, it not only is aesthetically appealing, but allows for academic learning opportunities as well.
Game markings should be developmentally appropriate according to the age and motor skill abilities of the children. These playground designs show the appropriate game markings based on the age of the children. The designs also recommend placement and distance between activities for various game markings. A helpful tool for parent groups or painters.
