Intergenerational Play

This is a loose park with flexible recreation equipment. Note that there are all these parents interacting with their children

In a park with fixed equipment park, parents generally watch over children. Or do things like provide the power to swing them

In a loosed park I saw a dad rolling his child ...

I asked which would you rather do, swing them or do this. He answered this of couse.

The difference was here he is active and will do somewhat different motions with each push, theer all he would be doing is the same swinging all the time.

In a park with no equipment parents generally do littel with their children, except that is for the few parents who had the forsite to bring equipment and turn it into a loose park. Unfortunately this is the exception, not the rule.
