The Developmental Powers of a Playground

I can not count the number of playgrounds that we have visited in the last several years with my active twin boys as it's one of their favorite past times by far. They especially love showing off their monkey bar skills to the older kids.

I also can't count the number of gasps from girl moms after seeing my lil tag team waving from the highest points on the play equipment. It was during one of their fearless feats that I decided to just go with it and sign them up for gymnastics, where they could continue to swing, climb and tumble.

Even now that they are almost seven they never tire of spending an hour at the playground. Fortunately for my boys, we live near two Landscape Structures - Three Oaks Park in Estero, Florida and Lakes Park in Fort Myers, FL. Landscape Structures designs better playgrounds that welcome all ages and abilities. They are the signature gathering spaces for communities and offer the most innovative play experiences.

Giving kids the freedom to play at such fantastic facilities allows children to gain confidence through mastery and self-discovery and can really nurture small psyches and instill lifelong skills.

Plus, it makes me so proud seeing them boldly go up to kids that they don't know and ask, "Do you want to play?" Such innocence and life lessons. I believe it really prepared them for Kindergarten and helped to develop their social skills in general.
