New Trend: Playground Design by Kids

Who better to help design a playground than the very people who will be using them? Various non profit organizations have begun to turn to kids for design ideas as both a good way to save costs as well as instill a sense of community.

Teens from the Indio club submitted suggestions and ideas for their playground and their input was put into the final design. Construction is expected to take place in one day.

Children from Valley Oaks Charter School also took part in the design process of their playground by submitting design ideas to KaBoom!, who finalized and built the playground, also in one day.

If these experiments are successful, perhaps we can expect to see more playground designs by the kids who use them.
