Urban Gardens Inc. designs and builds amazing custom nature playscapes for children. A nature play space, or natural playground, are designed to integrate natural components into an unstructured play and learning environment for children. A natural play space encourages creativity, connects children with the outdoors, grows their imagination and promotes physical exercise all at once! A recent study by the University of Tennessee (Study: Natural Playgrounds More Beneficial to Children) found that kids who played in a natural play space versus a traditional playground engaged in more physical activity, played for longer periods of time, and appeared to use their imaginations more.
You’ve probably already seen, and maybe even played on, our nature play space if you’ve attended the MD State Fair in the past two years. Urban Gardens Inc. has sponsored the design and build of the Nature Play Space by the Horseland Tent in 2016 and 2017.
We can design and build any components of these natural play spaces at your home! A natural play space is a great way for children to explore things like sand, maze, nature art, gardening, balancing and building by incorporating educational play into a functional landscape.
