Outdoor play is an important part of childhood. It's great exercise and it's also good for helping children develop social skills and learn to interact with others. We love getting outside and enjoying the sunshine, fresh air and making new friends at our local playgrounds.
Recently we visited an Inclusive Playground. Lebauer Park in Greensboro NC is a popular inclusive playground built by Landscape Structures. It's this sprawling area with tons of fun structures and spaces for children to play and run around. When my son spied the rock climbing wall he immediately made a sprint for it. We spent the next hour exploring the park and all it's interesting features. From rope climbing small hills to spinning gyros and a giant sandbox, this playground is full of fun for kids.
I love watching my son encounter new obstacles and figure out ways to overcome them. Finding the best way over a rock structure or discovering how to balance his body so he can better rope climb his way up a hill. It's an opportunity for him to test his strength and find his confidence. And I love when he makes new friends! I get to watch his heart at work as he introduces himself and opens up to people around him. It's the best feeling!
