Born to be wild

Research has consistently shown that there are major benefits for healthy child development in unstructured outdoor play. Yet, unfortunately there is a strong sense among today’s parents that it’s unsafe for children to play unsupervised.

Some urban communities are trying to graft a slice of wild and unpredictable wilderness into a safe, secure playground near you.  In such places, children can explore outdoor streams, rocks, wild grasses, bushes, branches and hilly mounds – even if the rugged, varied topography has to be newly constructed on top of an otherwise ordinary landscape.

These new park areas allow for risk in play, but don’t let the stress on your child’s freedom fool you. This type of stress is actually healthy.

Another possible alternative to public parks is exploring the best in backyard play sets and outside playground equipment.
