How intentional design improves your playground

Making a playground with a purpose and real intention might seem like an obvious option. However, intentional playground design is a specific term we use at Creo to make your space shine and really connect with your purpose, story, and background. These types of playgrounds have the most play value, beauty, and engagement.

In this article, we will cover the main components of a great intentional playground design

The Essence of Intentional Playground Design

Intentional design starts with a fundamental question: What is the essence of your playground? This is about more than just picking colours or equipment. It is about understanding the narrative you want to integrate into the space you will build.

Our approach is to guide you through this process, helping you choose a theme (be it sensory, accessible, inclusive, nature-focused, sustainable, or a destination playground) and asking the right questions to crystallise your vision into a tangible, delightful reality.

Key Elements of Intentional Design in Playgrounds

  1. The Story: Every playground tells a story. What’s yours? This is a crucial question in intentional playground design. For a school playground, it might be about embedding learning opportunities and reflecting the school’s brand. For community spaces, it could be about capturing the cultural essence of the area, turning the playground into a hub for communal storytelling and connection.
  2. Accessibility: Inclusivity is at the heart of intentional design. It’s about ensuring that children of all abilities can explore, play, and grow together. This involves thoughtful strategies to create playgrounds that are accessible to everyone, breaking down barriers and fostering a sense of belonging.
  3. Age-Appropriate Equipment: Intentional design also means tailoring the playground to suit its primary users. This involves choosing age-appropriate equipment and balancing the need for safety with the desire for challenging, engaging play experiences.
  4. Purpose-Driven Construction: Every element in an intentionally designed playground serves a purpose, aligning with the specific needs and desires of the community it serves. This could be reflected in case studies of playgrounds built with a clear, community-driven purpose.

Benefits of Intentional Design

  1. Enhanced Community Outcomes: Intentional design does more than beautify a space; it transforms it into an important part of the community. These playgrounds become well-used and appreciated extensions of the community, reflecting the collective values and aspirations.
  2. Reflecting Community Voice: A key benefit of intentional design is its ability to incorporate community feedback into the playground’s design, ensuring that the space truly resonates with its users.
  3. Maximizing Play Value: Intentionally designed playgrounds offer a richness of play, learning, and social opportunities, maximising the play value and ensuring a diverse range of experiences for all users.


The philosophy of intentional design in playgrounds is about crafting spaces that are more than the sum of their parts. It’s an invitation to consider these principles in your future playground projects to create spaces that truly reflect the heart and soul of your community.

Understanding playground compliance

Ensuring the safety and compliance of playgrounds is essential to getting your project approved and
avoiding any surprises along the way, such as not having a sign-off for children to play.
In this article, we will cover the main topics about safety and compliance that you need to be aware
of when building a playground.

General Safety Requirements

First, you need to understand the age you are catering your playground for. Having that in mind, when you engage with a playground company, it will be easier to collaborate and ensure your space can comply with the features you want.

Following the NZS 5828:2015, or knowing the basics of these standards, will help you determine whether you can build everything in your play wish list.

Materials and Construction

The longevity and safety of playground equipment are proportional to the right materials and construction methods used.

Consider where your playground is being built and the purpose you have with it. If you are building a nature playground, make sure you use timber sourced from legal areas also, it will not split or could pose a danger to the user’s health.

These guidelines ensure that playgrounds are fun but also durable and safe.

Installation and Anchorage

Secure installation and anchorage are critical to prevent playground equipment from tipping or moving. The standard provides detailed instructions on anchoring equipment, considering factors like soil type and equipment height.

Each playground has specifics, so engaging experts when choosing your playground equipment is crucial. This step is essential for the stability and safety of the playground.

Safety for Specific Equipment Types

Each type of playground equipment, from swings to slides, has unique safety requirements. The standard addresses these with specific guidelines, such as minimum guardrail heights and safe ladder designs. For example, to ensure a tower is compliant and safe, it must be enclosed if it is higher than 3m.

Slides and Swings with guardrails, enough surface area for fall, and we will cover in the next topic, safety surfacing is essential.

Playground Surfacing

Impact-absorbing surfacing is crucial for reducing injury risk. The standard details the required surfacing materials, like rubber or sand, and their necessary depths based on equipment height.

This is one of the most essential parts of your playground project and will help you determine if costs will be higher or lower than your actual budget.

Wet-pour rubber surfacing can have a shockpad layer that can be adjusted depending on the height of playground equipment. Other cheaper options include sand or wood chips. However, their maintenance costs are higher, and they can fail tests if poorly maintained.

It is also essential to ensure that if you have a bike track in your play area, safety surfacing is required when the track is made of concrete or asphalt.


Ensuring playground safety is a critical responsibility. By adhering to the NZS 5828:2015 standards, playground operators and builders in New Zealand can create spaces that are enjoyable and secure for children.

Understanding and implementing these guidelines is a significant step towards fostering safe and engaging play environments, reducing your costs and will help you understand the actual process of designing your space.

How to build a learning-focused playground

We all know playgrounds are meant to be fun, thrilling, and challenging. They can also be a focused environment for all users. You can make a learning-focused playground in many ways, and in this article, we will cover what features you need to include in your space to foster learning!

The Essence of Learning-Focused Playgrounds

Learning-focused playgrounds are designed with a core philosophy: play is vital to learning and development. These playgrounds go beyond traditional play structures to include elements that stimulate children’s cognitive, sensory, and social development.

Key Features of Learning-Focused Playgrounds

  • Educational Play Equipment: Think beyond slides and swings. Include interactive panels, puzzles, and movable equipment that challenge children’s thinking and motor skills. These tools encourage exploration and problem-solving in an open-ended, creative way.
  • Sensory Elements: Incorporate tactile, auditory, and visual elements. Sensory play is inclusive and engages various senses. It helps brain development and problem-solving skills. Don’t forget about educational signage, an excellent tool for inclusive learning, integrating users of different abilities and backgrounds.
  • Nature Integration: Integrating natural elements like gardens, adventure playgrounds, and water features not only soothes but also educates about the environment. It’s a subtle yet powerful way to foster environmental awareness.

  • Inclusive Design: A playground should welcome everyone. Designing for inclusivity means considering people of all ages and abilities, and they can play and learn together, fostering a sense of community, and enhancing communication skills.
Managed risk is a key component of learing-focused playgrounds

Benefits of Learning-Focused Playgrounds

  • Cognitive Development: These playgrounds boost problem-solving skills and creativity. They offer a less structured form of learning, allowing children to explore and learn at their own pace.
  • Physical Growth: Features like monkey bars and obstacle courses present managed risks crucial for physical development. Risky play is shown to build resilience and improve problem-solving abilities.
  • Social Skills: Incorporate elements that encourage group play and teamwork. This not only enhances communication skills but also teaches empathy and cooperation.
  • Emotional Well-being: Play is a natural stress reliever. A well-designed playground can provide a safe space for emotional expression and development.
Cultural elements help children learn through play.

Learning-focused playgrounds are areas that set the grounds for the next generation. By investing in these spaces, communities and schools can significantly contribute to the holistic development of children. 

Embrace the concept of learning playgrounds and create spaces that are not just fun but also enriching and educational. Remember, a playground that combines fun with learning is a playground that shapes brighter futures.

The importance of colour in playgrounds

When you first see a playground, the colours catch your eye. But these colours do more than make the space pretty—they play a crucial role in a child’s growth, mental well-being, and how the playground fits into its surroundings.

Let’s explore why the colour choice in playground design is so important and deserves your careful thought.

Colours at play

Colours do more than brighten up a playground; they’re like a quiet teacher for kids. The right colours can influence children’s learning and how they connect with those lessons.

When you pick the colours for a playground, you’re helping kids make sense of their world.

The importance of each colour

Every colour affects us in its own way, which is something to think about when you’re designing a place for kids to learn and play:

  • Red: It’s energetic and can spark creativity, but too much might be too intense for some kids.
  • Blue: It’s the colour of calm, making a busy playground feel like a peaceful spot, especially on hot days.
  • Yellow: It’s all about happiness and can help keep kids focused and full of creative ideas.
  • Orange: If you want an area full of energy and fun, orange is your colour.
  • Green: It reminds us of nature and gives a peaceful, refreshing feeling.
  • Purple: It’s calming and can help kids feel balanced and at ease.
  • Brown: It gives a sense of strength and stability, but it’s best to keep things interesting when mixed with brighter colours.
  • Off-White: It’s soft on the eyes and good for concentration without the risk of overstimulation that comes with brighter colours.

A Balanced Palette

Can a playground have too much colour? Yes, it can. Studies have found that too many colours or complex patterns can be overwhelming and might even make some kids anxious.

It’s essential to strike a balance right for the play area and the kids who use it. Balancing the colours in your space can foster engaging learning and avoid sensorial issues.

Check out our surface colour mixer.

Big areas can use natural elements for a childcare playground.

Colours and shapes together

When you combine colours with shapes, you do more than make the playground look nice. You create an even better place for learning. This combo helps kids recognise and learn about different shapes and colours while they play.

The Full Picture

Choosing the right colours for a playground is much more than style. It’s a big part of how kids develop their brains, handle feelings, and stay safe.

Colours can also encourage kids to play together and feel like they belong, which is important for any community space.

Why We Love Colorful Playgrounds

Choosing colours for playgrounds isn’t just about making something look good. It’s about designing a place that helps kids learn, get involved, and have fun. Colours are key—they turn a simple play area into a place full of life and excitement.

Common playground equipment issues and how to prevent them

If you want to know the common issues with playground equipment, you came to the right place. Playgrounds should be where fun never stops, but sometimes, equipment problems can get in the way.

To keep good times safe, knowing about these hiccups and how to avoid them is important. In this article, we will cover the common issues with playgrounds and how you can solve them.

The Right Fit for Your Playground

It’s a common issue to pick out playground equipment that doesn’t quite fit — too large for the area or too small for the community’s needs can lead to safety and usability issues.

Getting It Just Right

The trick is to talk with experts. Playground designers and builders look at the space you’ve got and start a collaborative journey with you—not too big, not too small, and just the fun your neighbourhood is looking for.

Making Playgrounds Last

The wrong materials can make playgrounds wear out fast or become unsafe when the weather hits hard. It is important to consider if your space might be prone to be too wet or even too hot.

By engaging with playground experts, they will be recommending materials that are durable, weather-resistant, and compliant with safety standards, ensuring the playground withstands the test of time and use.

Anticipating and Managing High Traffic

Playgrounds can be areas of high user engagement, mainly when designed with intent and meaning, which is excellent! If you don’t plan for many users playing day in and day out, things might break down sooner than you think.

Expert analysis includes estimating the level of use and selecting equipment designed for durability. This foresight is crucial for maintaining a safe and inviting playground environment over time.

See our full equipment range.

Compliance with Safety Standards

Playground safety isn’t just a bunch of rules—it’s about keeping kids out of harm’s way. Ignoring safety standards is a risk no one should take.

Regular inspections and adherence to safety protocols by experts are indispensable practices that ensure every playground component meets necessary safety benchmarks.

Expertise Makes Playgrounds Better

Addressing common playground equipment challenges is a task best overseen with expert knowledge. It’s about creating a space that endures daily play’s rigours without compromising safety or enjoyment.

With professional input, playgrounds can be more than play areas — they can be well-oiled machines for fun, growth, and community building.

5 Signs you need a playground upgrade

Simple equipment can have great play value, kids can climb, and invent other games with it.

Think about your local playground. It’s more than swings and slides. It’s where friendships are made and adventures start. But playgrounds are about more than fun; they’re crucial for children’s growth and bringing communities closer.

As we learn more about how children play and grow, our playgrounds need to keep up, becoming places where every child feels welcome and eager to explore.

In this article, we will cover the main signs your playground needs an upgrade and why they are vital signs you need to be aware of.

#1 Safety

Playgrounds in 2023 are all about safety. And when we mention safety, it is not the same as managed risk. It is the actual safe of equipment or surfaces that users engage with. That old metal slide? It might have seen better days. Chipped paint, rust, and wobbly steps are more than eyesores—they’re hazards.

Safety surfacing is another big deal. It’s not just about cushioning falls; it’s about matching the surfacing needs to the critical fall height, too.

#2 Inclusivity

Imagine a playground where every child, no matter their ability, can join in the fun. That’s inclusivity, and it’s at the heart of modern play spaces.

Maybe your school or neighbourhood has changed, or some children can’t enjoy the playground like others.

Upgrading to an inclusive design isn’t just nice—it’s necessary. It’s about creating an environment where users of all ages and abilities can enjoy playtime and learning, fostering a better community.

#3 Playground Equipment

Playground designs are in the middle of a major makeover. It’s out with the old and in with the new—think bright colours, eco-friendly materials, and equipment that makes kids think while they play.

When a playground looks like something from a storybook, it invites users to invent their own stories, sparking growth and learning.

If your playground’s more ‘ho-hum’ than ‘wow’, it’s time for an upgrade that will bring back the buzz.

#4 User Engagement

Let’s face it: a quiet playground is a sign something’s not quite right. Today’s play spaces are designed to pull children out of their homes and classrooms and into the sunshine, with climbing walls, music-making equipment, and games that get the whole neighbourhood involved.

 If your playground is lonely, consider an upgrade that will make it the heart of the community again. Drawing people to play and learn is key to improving your space. 

Consider play features that cater for different ages and equipment with more play value, and talk to the children and other community members to check what they want. That will increase user engagement on your upgrade.

Learn more: What is Play Value?


#5 Compliance

Rules for playgrounds aren’t just red tape; they’re there to keep kids safe and happy. As new play options become available, your playground must stay in the game.

From the suitable surfacing for your swings to ensuring the seesaw is up to code, keeping your playground compliant means keeping it open and fun for everyone.


Spotting the signs for a playground upgrade is essential: look for wear and tear, listen for laughter (or the lack of it), and make sure everyone can join in. Upgrading your playground isn’t just a quick fix—it’s an investment in your community’s health, happiness, and future.

With a modern, inclusive design, your new playground will be where memories are made for years to come.
