Designing and Building Outdoor Natural Playspaces


Bienenstock Natural Playgrounds
Adam Bienenstock

The goal of natural playgrounds is to connect children to nature when and where they play. This presentation examines some short case studies of the obstacles to creating 'nearby nature', such as design standards, construction requirements, public policy, risk assessments, monetary reward systems, and regulatory frameworks, as well as strategies to consider if nature play is to become a standard for our children.
