In 2005 author Richard Louv coined the term “nature deficit disorder” outlining society’s disconnect with nature and the negative effects not only on our children, but our communities.
By tapping into the restorative powers of nature, we can boost mental acuity and creativity, promote health and wellness, and ultimately strengthen human bonds.
Our Nature Inspired play equipment blends the adventure and wonder of nature with the latest in playground innovation, capturing children’s imaginations with the look and feel of real bark and rock, while offering the durability, safety and low maintenance demanded in a high quality play structure.
Sensory stimulation with outdoor musical instruments, tactile features on wood carved totems and varied play pieces all promote unstructured imaginative play for children.
Combine these benefits with those only Mother Nature can provide by incorporating trees, plants and gardens into the play environment to strike the perfect balance between the natural and the man-made, creating the optimal setting for child directed free play.
We need to get kids back outside and unstructured outdoor play lets them do what they do best – to learn and grow through play. Time spent outside encourages them to exercise their bodies and their minds in ways that indoor activities simply cannot.
It helps them develop physically, cognitively and socially, and ultimately sets the stage for them to become healthy productive adults.
