Children's play space, new standard for residential areas

Children's play space, new standard for residential areas

Nowadays, when people buy a house, they not only look at the immediate conditions, but also consider the future development.

Perfect facilities, including relaxation and relaxation venues, especially children's play space are more important factors.


— Site selection criteria —

The playing field should be located at the opposite center of the entire residential area, making it easier for residents in the area to arrive. At the same time, in order to reduce the impact of game field noise on residents' lives, it should be ensured that the game field and the residential building have a certain distance to avoid the proximity.

The playing field should be set in a more conspicuous position in the community, so that as many sights as possible can be reached in the surrounding buildings. In this way, even if the parents are in the house, they can always see the children in the game. In addition, it is not advisable to plant trees that block the line of sight around the playground, and maintain good visibility, which is convenient for adults to monitor children.

The playing field should be placed in a position where the sunlight can be illuminated for a long time, and should not be placed in a position that is under the shadow for a long time. Especially in the morning from 9:00 to 12:00 and from 4:00 to 6:00 pm, the playground should be able to get plenty of sunshine. But at the same time, it is completely exposed to the sun, and it will become untouched in the hot summer. It is recommended to plant deciduous trees on the south side of the game ground and in the appropriate position in the game field. Summer will cover the summer and the sun will be protected after the leaves fall.

Since children often go to play outside the playground, there should be a certain amount of safe buffer space around the playground, away from motor vehicles or appropriate isolation measures to prevent vehicles from posing danger to children.


— Site design principles —

Parental seats should be considered at the edge of the playing field. Seats should be at a safe distance from the game facilities and should enable parents to see every game facility. At the same time, there should be room for the baby stroller to be placed next to the seat.

The game space partition design is more scientific. There should be a corresponding gaming venue for different age groups. It is recommended that the playgrounds and facilities of children aged 1-2 years, 2-5 years old and children aged 5-10 years be properly differentiated to ensure that there is no conflict between them during the game.

The floor material of the site should have a certain degree of safety. Use hard floor tiles as little as possible. It is recommended to use soft land, grass, sand and wood and sawdust floors. In addition, because children's attention to the ground will be much higher than that of adults, it is recommended to pay attention to the design of the ground floor, which can provide varied height difference and texture. Such as smooth, rough, soft, hard, dry sand, wet sand, grass, brick, stone, cement, bark and so on.

The playing field should have an iconic landscape to add to the fantasy and recognizability of the game field. Such as big trees, clock towers, windmills, small earth hills, low walls, large platforms, and even sculptures. This will enable the game field to form a clear image in the child's mind, resulting in a sense of attachment.


— Selection of play equipment —

Because children's perceptual development is multi-faceted, there are also touch, hearing, smell and taste in addition to vision. Therefore, in the location of the amusement equipment, try to include a variety of sensing devices. Such as providing sound (such as wind chimes, the hum of the floor, the rustling of the leaves), a variety of textured play equipment.

It is recommended to combine some of the school's sports curriculum and park playground into the residential playground, such as the runway, various ball venues, carousels, labyrinths, etc., to scale down without losing basic gaming and athletic functions.

Children love to play with children of the same age or adults, so choosing a play device should also consider sharing and interactivity.

Prototyping makes it easier to impress children's minds, such as the use of shapes such as circles, triangles, squares, and hexagons. Cave-like, gapy and hollow and porous facilities are easy to attract children. The spiral space and the return space are very attractive to children, and it is recommended to design a "maze" space with a migratory nature.

A good community should be equipped with enough children's playgrounds to create an educational and entertaining space for children.
