When you have a Playgrounds Cheltenham based builder and designer like greenfieldsltd.co.uk/services/playgrounds-and-parks can provide a public space. What are children’s most favourite activities?
- The swings. Everyone loves swings, not just the kids it seems. Flying through the air feeling the rush of the wind around you, the flopping feeling in your tummy, getting your Mum and Dad to give you push start and then finally learning to do it yourself can be one of the most life affirming moments for children and parents alike.

However, what piece of playground equipment doesn’t come with a small element of risk. Kicking off with your leg the roundabout is soon rotating at great speed. Jumping off and on it when it’s moving is pretty exciting.
