Benefits of Implementing a Playground Into Your Housing Development
Playgrounds are fun, stimulating spaces where kids can feel free to play, explore and imagine to their hearts’ content. However, there’s even more to a high-quality playground than a family-friendly place to play.
When you implement playground equipment into your apartment complex or housing development, kids, parents and communities alike will reap the many benefits of these commercial structures. Some of these benefits include:
- A better sense of community: Playgrounds give residents a relaxed space to connect, interact and form friendships. With more positive interactions comes heightened feelings of belonging, creating a greater sense of community among locals.
- Reduced crime: Studies have shown that community playgrounds can cause a decrease in violent, disorderly and property crime while improving the lives of at-risk youth.
- Increased property value: The presence of a playground in your community can significantly benefit the local economy, boosting property value and attracting small businesses to the area.
Playgrounds also play a major role in improving physical and mental health for community members, ultimately enhancing their quality of life. Children in your housing development will see the most benefits.
Activities that take place on playgrounds, such as climbing, swinging and jumping, help children improve their physical health and wellness in various ways. Some of the many fitness aspects that playgrounds positively influence include:
- Cardiovascular health.
- Upper- and lower-body strength.

Social development is another considerable benefit of playgrounds in apartment complexes.
