OT Corner: Risky Playgrounds – Why Kids Need Them
[Source: Rocket OT]
It’s been a while since I’ve posted, as I’ve been continuing my journey through Central America. I’ve been trying to maintain some semblance of an exercise routine while I’ve been away, and as most soccer (or football depending on where you’re from) fields seem to be closed to the public, I’ve resorted to working out in playgrounds. Promise me, it’s less creepy than it sounds! This has given me a chance to see the differences between playgrounds in South/Central America, compared with the playgrounds I’m used to back home. Which got me thinking about the set up of Australian playgrounds, and the balance between safety and calculated risk.
