Playgrounds have been identified as the place within parks where children expend the most energy, why KOMPAN Play Institute set out to examine the retention of children and their parents on a newly refurbished playground at Flag Pole Hill in Dallas, USA. The research included interviews with 177 adults and 50 children.
“The outdoor playground is great for my child’s health and important because of the ability to get outside and get fresh air!” stated an interviewed parent. The research done by the KOMPAN Play Institute shows that 98% of parents found playgrounds to be important and the main reasons are the positive influence on their children’s health and the fresh air. The new playground at Flag Pole Hill, that WOWs both children and parents, increased the use of the park by 77%.
73% of the parents stated that their main reason for visiting this playground was the unique products. Parents thereby indicate that for a playground to be attractive it is important to have unique play equipment for different age groups. A wide variety of play equipment ensures that the play area is fun and attractive for all ages and abilities.
