Natural Play & Learn Spaces

Why Natural Play and Learn Spaces?

Natural play and learn spaces are becoming more popular due to the importance of getting children back outside and away from the screens and sedentary lifestyles they’ve become accustomed to. Natural play enhances cognitive abilities, reduces stress, improves self-discipline, and encourages imaginative play and active life styles.

Advantages of Natural Play and Learn Spaces

Development and Learning


  • Playscapes cost the same or less than traditional playgrounds to purchase, install, and maintain.
  • Over a 20 year time frame, natural playgrounds are significantly less expensive to maintain and replace as they do not require complete demolition and replacement every 12 to 15 years. (Bienenstock Playgrounds).


  • Natural playscapes are aesthetically pleasing to the eye. The natural materials blend in with surrounding landscapes and have intriguing designs for those visiting and exploring them.
