netplayOne of the best measures of the success of a play environment is how long people stay engaged with the space. The greatest factors influencing this are the level of challenge and variety of experiences. Over time children figure out how to use play equipment and the level of challenge decreases and it becomes harder to stay engaged for longer periods of time. When we introduce competition into play the variety of experiences is always changing and stays engaging. Obstacle Course Racing (OCR) is a sport in which a competitor, traveling on foot, must overcome various physical challenges.  OCR is a great way to stay fit, have fun, meet new friends and thanks to shows and competitions like American Ninja Warrior, Spartan Race, Warrior Dash and ToughMudder: Obstacle Course Racing can also make you famous.  Miracle Playsystems has several product offerings to help make your next playground design unique, challenging, and just maybe help a child become the Next American Ninja Warrior.Warrior Course 1-BUsing standard traditional playground elements like monkey bars, climbing walls, and crawl tubes we can help transform your park or school into an age appropriate obstacle course for all abilities.

Remember when you were a kid and all you needed to have fun was a cardboard box and some markers? Or a tree to climb and a Kingdom to defend? Even though it feels like the times have changed for our kids, especially in the digital world they live in, there still is Adventure in their little lives. I see it when my son picks up a stick and turns it into a sword or a bow and arrow, and out of nowhere fends off an army of zombies or when he pretends to drive a racecar when I am driving him to school. (No I don’t drive that crazy)

The most common question we are asked as playground professionals is “What’s new in playgrounds?”. The current trend we are seeing in playscape design in Northern California and across the country is all about outside the box thinking. Whether it is developing custom designs or taking play outside of the play box and onto the streets. There is a trend happening to integrate play anywhere. Image Courtesy of Atlas Lab PeakExperience_003-A

Cutting Edge Playsites that Speak Aesthetics in Volumes

CATEGORY / Miracle Recreation, Playground Equipment

When designing a playground you want every feature to be a standout on its own, but also blend together. This is when play sites really speak volumes in terms of aesthetics. In the design stage, get in there and include tall structures and low lying ones too such as high slides and balance beams that have similar forms and colors so that they look like they belong together, even though they are incredibly different. When a designer can make polar opposites look like they belong in the same room together, he or she knows they have done a superior job.
