When you think of playgrounds, what areas do you imagine?
Schools, churches, or parks? Very few envision them on military bases but many military communities create a park and recreation area that features a community playground. Playgrounds, especially on military bases, are an effective way to provide a family friendly environment. These areas also create a means for families, who are often apart, to reconnect.
Every military community can benefit from a playground area. They encourage children to engage in active play, improve physical coordination and interact with their peers. In addition, commercial playgrounds on military bases can also serve as a wonderful tool for younger children to reacquaint themselves with their parents who are returning from a long deployment. They provide a setting that is filled with fun activities where a child can acclimate themselves with their parent’s return.
Aside from the healing benefits, a commercial playground offers a wide variety of benefits associated with childhood development. Commercial playgrounds can be tailored to a specific age group and skill level to assist in strengthening a child’s motor skills and development.
