Benefits of Playground Equipment for Cities

Cities don’t always fit the traditional park environment, but they’re still ideal spaces for play. Urban playground equipment provides many benefits for kids, families and communities alike. From economic value to physical fitness to a sense of togetherness, playgrounds bring all sorts of perks to urban developments.

Economic Development

City playground equipment can increase the property value of surrounding homes and even bring homebuyers, workers, businesses and retirees into the community. Families are more likely to move into an area that appears safe for kids to play and explore, and an urban playground is an excellent indicator of a child-friendly environment.

Community Engagement

Playgrounds play a vital role in the community. They can define the feel of a city and its neighborhoods, increase visual appeal and ultimately revitalize the area. Playgrounds also help to bring community members together. Play equipment encourages people to gather, socialize and build relationships with one another, increasing their sense of belonging.

Crime Reduction

Studies show that playgrounds reduce crime rates in neighborhoods and communities, especially in urban areas lacking in greenery. Crime decreases because playgrounds give kids and teenagers a physical and emotional outlet and a safe place to escape and play. With playground equipment in your city, you can improve the lives of at-risk youth and reduce illegal acts, such as violence, disorderly conduct and property crime.

Child Betterment

Urban playgrounds aren’t just for play. They also help kids gain the skills they need to grow and develop into well-adjusted individuals. Playing on city playground equipment provides physical, cognitive and social benefits for kids in several ways:

  • Physical: Playground activities like climbing, jumping and swinging positively influence various aspects of health and fitness, such as weight, balance, cardiovascular health, agility, upper- and lower- body strength, muscle development, bone health, coordination and balance.
  • Cognitive: Playing on playgrounds leads to cognitive growth and development for kids, helping them improve upon their problem-solving skills, self-esteem, critical thinking, creativity, language, literacy and strategic planning skills.
  • Social: Kids naturally interact with one another when playing on playgrounds. This socialization helps them gain important social skills, such as patience, fairness, cooperation, inclusion, compassion, respect, acceptance, tolerance, making friends and overcoming challenges.
