Risky play is most popular

Six months after Cambridgeshire’s new £1 million adventure playground officially opened it is still receiving excellent reviews from local youngsters.

Wisbech Adventure Playground is one of the 30 adventure playgrounds installed across the country as part of the previous government’s Play Pathfinder scheme.
Reuben Francis, Lead Playworker at the playground says: “The playground has many bespoke features but I have to say the most popular piece of equipment is the ravine swing. It offers dynamic and risky play and children love the challenge it presents them.”
The ravine swing, the first Sutcliffe Play has ever installed in the UK, is an over-sized triangular shape with hanging ropes that allow two users, young or old, to fly through the air up to approximately 3 meters high.
Reuben continues: “The swing encourages calculable risky play, and children are fascinated with the extreme swings they can achieve.”

Open spaces for loud and wild games

Open spaces represent an important opposite world to the domesticated, digitised, traffic-loaded everyday life of metropolitan children. In this context the Waller Sand beach park in Bremen shows how both children and the entire city population benefit from natural open spaces.
