A good playground stimulates a child by offering a variety of interesting, challenging, and rewarding activities. Children learn from play and what they learn can be controlled by careful design of playgrounds. Topics discussed include theories of equipment; design; playground planning and concern for the needs of children, parents, and community; financial considerations; and equipment suggestions. Examples of innovative playgrounds and playgrounds for the handicapped are cited. (MLF)
