A growing body of research reveals a strong link between children’s experiences of being outdoors in nature and their psychological well-being and overall development. PlayCore has partnered with the Natural Learning Initiative, College of Design, NC State University to develop NatureGrounds Best Practice guidelines to deliberately design nature back into the lives of children where they play. Benefits include increasing physical activity levels and to creating richer play experiences for all users. Play & Park Structures can guide you in creating a NatureGrounds National Demonstration

That’s why our parent company brings in scholars like Dr. Stuart Brown to educate our team on the science of play and its benefits for all generations.
