Collaborative activity playground for kids
"While there are so many amazing playgrounds for kids to do stuff in," says Rockwell, "most of them have a very similar play experience. A lot of them are linear and there is mostly fixed equipment."
Play Equipment Locker
The nearest NYC playground to me offers a total of 1 children's activity. The nearest Children's library offers thousands of books. A Equipment locker is like a library for play. Adding one to a playground greatly enhances the play possibilities.
There are 2 Hula Hoops, 4 Nok Hockey boards, 1 ping pong table and a Trouble game all being played in this area at them moment. All of these objects are portable allowing new ones to be swapped in and old ones swapped out in a minute.
Rockefeller Park Equipment Locker
All 5,000 children we've interviewed want these very same, natural play opportunities. Offer them a choice, and every time they'll choose Natural Playgrounds over equipment playgrounds (see "a child's perspective").
