Safety is a cornerstone of any successful playground – but research proves that an appropriate level of thrill and risk motivates children to visit, stay and return to play areas and improve physical activity. Children and tweens crave challenge, and risky playgrounds with sufficiently thrilling play equipment can mean the difference between a beloved, well-used playground and an empty park.

Join Stacey Hack, Design and Visualisation Team Leader at KOMPAN Australia as she explores the importance of thrill in the attractiveness and potential of a play area and the benefits that they provide for developing children. Explore the balance between risk and safety and understand how to safely provide exhilarating and rich play experiences for children of various ages and abilities.

In this webinar, you will learn 7 considerations to remember when designing a thrilling playground and apply them to local and international case studies for inspiration. Understand the connection between thrill and key developmental areas in children and tweens and use insights from real-world studies with children to create a well-loved and frequented play area.
