Due to our increasingly screen-centered lifestyles, it is more likely to see kids at home playing on their ipad than at the local park socializing on the playground. While kids should have some exposure to screens with their increasing relevance, it is also important to get them outside. There are handfuls of proven health benefits to being outside, especially for children as their bodies and minds are still developing. By playing in these settings, children will not only get physical exercise, but they will also use their imagination, something that screen time can hinder. Having a setting like this gives the children a space where they can bring friends over to play, giving them much needed one-on-one social interaction.
