I had a vivid dream last night of a kind of sports center, but less flashy, that consisted of stations that didn’t look geometric but they looked FUN like the new playgrounds I have seen pop up all over the place for kids…it was like there were bars to climb on, hang from, spin around on, and that was pretty much it but there were lots and they were HUGE!
I would LOVE to make something like this a reality, so I woke up this morning thinking about it and when I googled a bit look at what I found! I found out that there IS a park that is kind of like this in the Bronx! Here is the NYT article about it: http://www.nytimes.com/2012/07/01/nyregion/new-york-introduces-its-first-adult-playground.html?smid=pl-share
I still think this would be awesome, and a perfect complement to the CrossFit craze that is occurring these days. I’d love to see some of these playgrounds in Seattle…I did find this company that is bringing exercise equipment to the parks (which helps too) so I want to support MOMentum, and hope to see more of their locations as well as more adult size play equipment!!
Does anyone else want to play??
