From Geometric Jungle Gyms to Sustainable Timber Playgrounds

 - Aug 25, 2015
These whimsical playground designs combine modern architecture with kid-friendly activities. Playgrounds are often associated with wonderful childhood memories of hours spent on the swings, slides and monkey bars. These modern jungle gyms put a whole new spin on classic playground designs.

One of the major innovations in playground design has been the addition of high-tech features. Children are increasingly connected to mobile technology and many playgrounds feature activities that integrate these devices into playtime. Some of these high-tech playground designs include interactive game projectors, magnetic marble playgrounds and interactive jungle gyms.

Beyond high-tech features, many modern playgrounds feature unexpected and unusual architecture. For example, there are jungle gyms housed inside of old shipping containers. There are also luxurious playgrounds built on ships. There are even treehouse playgrounds that are elevated above the ground.
