Children were born to climb, imagine, roll, jump, laugh and twirl. They are naturally attracted to water and the beings that live there. They love to hide, pretend, ride, build and discover. Create a world just for them by providing a few basic elements.

An in-ground trampoline combines fun and safety, providing room to jump and a safe place to land and roll.
Wide open turf areas provide the best means of physical expression, from ball games to hide-and-seek.
Changes in grade encourage young ones to invent and improvise.
Children love to explore and survey their little worlds. Trees and structures which provide options for changing altitude provide hours of creative fun.
Nothing is more alluring than moving water. Shallow pools, alight with pollywogs, tadpoles and water skippers can delight children for hours.
The loose parts of nature are a sensory explosion for little ones. Give them space and materials to explore the feeling of dirt, stones and sticks.
Tunnels, mazes, forts & bridges, playhouses & characters, all provide fodder for adventure.
Lastly, provide children with the elements of nature: creatures and flora, bugs and birds, butterflies and dragonflies. A landscape which lures the natural world provides a sense of wonder and appreciation for where we live.
