Thinking Outside The Box


It is time to think outside the box as to how we deliver playgrounds and active spaces …

The leisure industry was largely ignored within the government’s budgets in 2018. ukactive called the budget a “missed opportunity for preventative health solutions”.

Budget cuts as well as, increased material costs, changes in regulations, increased demands on safety, and playground companies battling for the lowest costs to win bids have completely diminished the fundamental value of the playground and as a consequence, children are getting substandard leisure facilities.

How can we diversify facilities to encourage children to be more engaged and physically active?

Thinking outside the box and beyond standard sports equipment and focusing on the core values of play, will increase children’s physical literacy – encouraging an active lifestyle, increasing inclusion and decreasing obesity.

There are now more play equipment solutions than ever before. Jupiter Play works with some of the most innovative companies in the world, Yalp, FHS and Galopin each helping children to develop their fundamental movement skills.
