Why playgrounds in Europe are better than at home

By Young A & Miss E 

  Today we went to the park and there was an awesome playground. It had climbing structures, a seesaw, a sandbox, and a cool swing you could lie down on. Parks at home (especially newer ones) usually don't have those. The newer ones don't even have normal swings. What's the point of a playground if nobody is going to use it because it is so boring?

  Maybe they are trying to make it safer. However, if people can't have fun following the rules they aren't going to follow the rules. That is going to result in more people getting hurt than if they had just made a fun playground in the first place. I don't see why they are doing it.

  In Paris, they tried to make it both fun and safe. They put stickers with recommended ages on them on each piece of equipment to keep it both safe and fun.
