At the upcoming National Recreation and Park Association (NRPA) Congress and Exposition in Minneapolis, Minn., Landscape Structures will exhibit their nature-inspired playgrounds. Additionally, volunteers will construct a nature-inspired sawmill-themed Landscape Structures playground as part of the NRPA Service Project: Leave It Better on Tuesday, Oct. 26.

According to the Centers for Disease Control (CDC), one in every five children is obese. A growing body of research shows that a lack of outdoor play and interaction with nature is a contributing factor to this epidemic. The issue is gaining so much interest that it even caught the attention of the White House; President Obama emphasized the importance of reconnecting American families to the outdoors and signed a Presidential Memorandum to launch America's Great Outdoors Initiative.
Landscape Structures is proud to be part of the natural play movement, which connects children with nature, by creating nature-inspired playgrounds and integrating them into the natural landscape. In January 2010, Landscape Structures introduced the Play Naturally™ playground design solution. This playground design solution offers nature-inspired play structures that blend the beauty and wonder of nature with the safety, age-appropriateness and durability found in commercial playground equipment. And best of all, these natural playground structures encourage children to play outdoors and appreciate the natural world around them.
