Playgrounds are specialized areas within landscape architecture that consider various factors like safety, accessibility, inclusivity, age-appropriateness, and nature engagement. Modern playground design also includes elements to support children’s physical and cognitive development, such as integrating natural environmental aspects and promoting imaginative play.
