Adventure Playgrounds

When we first heard of Adventure Playgrounds, it was in a book on design for children. The playground was in the Netherlands and looked like a 10 year old boy's DREAM! A great deal of lamenting later, we were elated when a good friend told us about one in our own backyard. Here in Southern California, we have one of two playgrounds of this kind in the whole of the USA! (A third in Irvine is closed due to construction)
Children are encouraged to create their own space. They can literally build it themselves. They are encouraged (with adult supervision) to saw and hammer their way into the fort of their dreams.
A pond and rafts allow for Huck Finn type fun.
