With the growing popularity of nature play playgrounds schools are rethinking the best location for the new playground. Shade sales and soft fall rubber surfaces are giving way to the cooler shade of mature trees and the natural ground cover of mulch.

The steel and plastic playgrounds that fade quickly under the harsh Australian sun can be perceived as more durable. In practical terms if a playground is constructed well, using good quality timbers and quality components it should look as good as the day it was first built several years down the track. Will source timber can look more beautiful as it ages.

Reggio Emilia educational principles and the opportunity for open-ended, imaginative play lends itself to a nature playground under trees. Dry riverbed, water pump, mud kitchen, business swing, climbing wall, parkour  and sensory play can all be incorporated into a new nature play playground.

Gold Coast and Brisbane based design and construction company Everything Outside, are market leaders in the bespoke, stunning showcase playgrounds for schools in Queensland. Recently some of the playground elements also became available online to educators around Australia through the online store playgroundsuperstore.com.au
