Playgrounds fulfill a critical role in urban schools and neighborhoods, making space for physical and social wellbeing. The design of playgrounds goes far beyond equipment, incorporating planting and natural elements, loose parts and variation, into environments that are inspiring and open-ended. This panel will explore design considerations fostering inclusion, independence, and wellness as well as how children can be meaningfully engaged in the design of play spaces.
