Trends in Play

Play is part of us and helps us grow, learn and develop. Keeping up with trends in play is how we keep bringing you the best and most innovative products that keep communities moving in more ways than one. Bringing some of the latest innovations in play will add even more fun and development to these important spaces.


Play For Everyone

Universally designed spaces are more than a trend – it is really just good design. These spaces are full of opportunities for all people to find the best of themselves through outdoor play and recreation and feature a variety of play events throughout the entire space. Swinging, sliding, climbing, adventuring, spinning, and playing games at different levels to meet everyone’s ability and preference will be featured in inclusive spaces. The expansion of the word “inclusive” to be age, background, gender and ability focused is something to consider when designing these important places. Learn more.

Inspire Adventure

Adventure play is a trend that is key to keeping children off screens and engaging in active outdoor play. Adventure is often paired with awe and bringing awe into everyday life increases mental and physical well-being, gives us a sense of wonder, and encourages future exploration. Designing adventure and awe into playspaces keeps kids and communities outdoors together for more fun. Learn more
