Creative Outdoor Play Areas.
Miller, Peggy L.
Considering the creation of proper play areas for children (school sites, municipal and mini parks, private homes and backyards, shopping centers, apartment complexes, recreational areas, roadside parks, nursery schools, churches, summer camps, and drive-in theaters) as one of today's major challenges, the author recommends that professional educators, architects, real estate developers, city planners, parents, park and recreation directors, and private organization managers assume a vital part of this challenge. Considerations for development of creative play areas are described in the book under the following major headings: Play and Children's Learning; The Importance of Outdoor Play; General Guidelines for Developing Creative Outdoor Play Areas; Specific Guidelines for Developing Creative Outdoor Play Areas; Natural Topographical Features; Creative Play Equipment; Examples of Comprehensive Play Areas; Children's Gardens; Children's Farms; Children's Nature Areas; How to Plan, Develop, and Operate Creative Outdoor Play Areas; and, Special Events. Also included are illustrations, appendices (Values of Creative Outdoor Play Areas Summarized, and, Old Time Outdoor Games), 13 references, and an index. (MJB)
