ADVICE

DESIGN

Outdoor play areas should satisfy a child’s needs according to their age. Paths created between each play area will allow easy access for adults to intervene.

Security is essential; outdoor play areas and equipment must comply with the Children’s Playspaces and Equipment standard of the Canadian Standards Association, commonly known as the CSA standard. This will avoid serious incidents.

Water basins and abrupt ground level changes are not recommended. Guardrails and barriers can ensure minimal protection. Moreover, an appropriate thickness of impact attenuating material is required to soften potential falls; also, an opaque peripheral fence will contribute to noise reduction.

The development of healthy children generally implies that they can take part in activities and express themselves freely. Open spaces adorned with non- toxic plants will offer children a clear and safe environment for recreational activities. A colourful atmosphere that changes throughtout the seasons is also quite fitting; various forms of vegetation displaying primary colours such as red flowers and plants with yellow and blue foliage will stimulate young minds. To respect the theme of this particular landscape design, certain plants with blue-toned foliage (Helictotrichon) and white flowers (Campanula) are used to symbolize the oceans waves; they surround the playground equipment which is shaped like a boat. Finally, soft plants such as Salix, Helictotrichon, Miscanthus and Hemerocallis are meant to capture movement as they flutter gently in the wind.
