Playgrounds offer many benefits to communities and organizations; they create a space where children can play and have fun safely. They can also act as a community meeting space, encouraging a close-knit group to develop. Playgrounds can also give children an advantage by encouraging physical, emotional, social and sensory development.

To enjoy all these benefits of playgrounds, you need to be able to attract people to your play area, and playground accessories such as benches and tables make a playground a more attractive space to gather. Accessories create a pleasant environment not just for kids, but also for the adults that bring them to the playground. Furnishings such as shades and picnic tables encourage families and adults to stay longer, which means more playtime for kids and more playground benefits for the whole community!
