Playground ideas for 0-3 years

Available in English, Portuguese, Spanish and Turkish as part of the Istanbul95 programme, this new guide shares practical ideas for designing playgrounds that work for children aged 0-3 and their caregivers. It outlines the functions play equipment should serve, such as providing places to hold onto for children who are learning to walk, and explains the rationale behind including features such as sand, sound and small spaces. It places playground design in the broader framework of the importance of play, especially in the city, and emphasises the need to make playgrounds attractive places for caregivers to spend time, by including for example seating and toilet facilities.
