A good balance of work and play is necessary to keep the body and the mind active, which is why there seems to be a need for designers and architects to create peculiar playground innovations. These fun places filled with swings, seesaws, slides and sandboxes are no longer only targeted to kids, but they also target adults of all ages. Grown ups also seem to enjoy remembering those childhood days when laughs and games were more important than work and tight schedules.

As a result, there is a higher tendency to develop pieces inspired by playgrounds. There are fun art installations made to entertain audiences and make people break adult boundaries, as well as actual buildings that incorporate elements from these kids' spaces to make them more interactive and fun.

These peculiar playground innovations show how most people are only big versions of kids who still enjoy an afternoon of laughs and games. Stats for 65 Peculiar Playground Innovations Trending: Older & Buzzing
