Planet Earth Playscapes

Planet Earth Playscapes are another natural playground provider…ideas and photos from their website :

toddler designs based around tracks for either trikes or tiny feet

giant sand play area with cedar-shingled playhouses connected (for mudpie making)

Existing brick wall repurposed for climbing
a child-sized beaver lodge, tunnel and den system made from living willow

watercourse made from notched cedar logs

The descriptive text at the Planet Earth Playscapes website lists other good playground ideas that don’t show up easily in the photos…hills sculpted for winter sledding, sandpits with water ‘trickles’ , ‘friendship decks’ in the play area, soft-surface ‘crawl pads’ for babies, tiny bells tied and hidden in shrubs along paths to add to the sensory experience.
