World's Greatest Playgrounds

Today, the world is transforming into an even more interesting looking place due to advancements in architectural design. This couldn't be more evident than in something we may have all enjoyed at once point in our lives: the playground. A place we couldn't wait to get to, run wild and little to our knowledge a place our parents secretly used to deplete us of all our energy for a quieter evening. Today, parents have the advantage as the parks are designed to make children never want to leave. All around the world, out of the box playground have sprung up for children and adults to enjoy. We’ve already seen the most exotic playground designs from around the world, but now it’s time to check out more of the world’s greatest playground designs.

The Pavilion at Hakone makes kids all over Japan happy as this large temple like structure is layer after layer of excitement. It was constructed by using ancient temple construction methods. Inside of the temple like structure there is a jumbo sized climbing net, this net is a work of art as it’s a feat in itself, being knitted entirely by hand, from recycled nylon.

The net was made to create a large activity area. Simply put, there are various places for kids to explore on multiple levels. Kids are able swing from knitted teardrops, located on the exterior of the nets. They can also climb around the top of the net as well. They have the ability crawl through the net by accessing multiple openings included in the net and play with other children in the resting spots.
