Outdoor Playgrounds Rubber Flooring
Kid’s play areas are a protected and easily recognizable space where children and adults can play safely.
In the play areas individual or inclusive play structures can be placed, which can stimulate interaction and familiarization with other children through the mechanism of sharing the gaming experience.
For less fortunate children with disabilities, facilities with improved accessibility are available, but this does not preclude the use and sharing of spaces by everyone.
Colors, decorations and reliefs

You will have noticed how the children love to decorate the floors of the courtyards with colored chalk, to define the spaces and invent new group games.
