Natural Playscapes: Creating Outdoor Play Environments for the Soul

This resource challenges educators, school administrators, landscape architects, and directors of parks and child care centers to re-think the use of outdoor space. This comprehensive book defines the basic elements of natural playscapes—from raised planters to intricate pathways, sound gardens, and willow tunnels. The author discusses core concepts, the use of local resources (people as well as materials), and invitations for children to participate. The title offers brainstorming and assessment exercises that help you take stock of your environment, natural resources, portfolio of place, and playscape goals. A compendium of resources is also provided, including tips for involving the local community and ideas for creating sensory-rich spaces, inexpensive ideas for playscapes, plant resources, organizations, and references.
