While retail or entertainment has partly gone online, some public spaces such as shopping malls may use playground facilities to boost traffic. Besides, some home settings around the world may also allow similar facilities in the backyard? The list below shows the top 5 popular items to include in a playground that can provide fun experiences to all children.

Slides are always popular in any playground and they come in different shapes, designs and vary in height too. The most common shape of a swing will be straight, curved, or spiral. In our opinion, a simple straight slide is already fun enough for some of the younger kids while a curved or spiral slide will definitely bring more excitement to bigger kids.

After you have decided on the shape of the slide, the next step is to think about the setting of the slide, do you want to make it a free-standing slide and not attached it to a larger playground? Or you can go for a composite slide and connect it to other playground equipment.
