Tactile Paths from New Zealand

Thanks to reader Lynn for letting me know that in New Zealand they refer to barefoot paths as ‘tactile paths’ or simply textured paths, and for sending these examples from Henley Kindergarten, Nelson , New Zealand, (South Pacific)–a playground for children aged 2-5 years, and Auckland Point Kindergarten, Nelson , New Zealand, (South Pacific)–a playground for children aged 6 months to two years.

These aren’t just great for walking…I am reminded of the lovely path at the Kate Greenaway Nursery School in Islington, which is more used for trikes but is nice on bare feet as well.  If you’re making a path anyway, be sure to make it tactile!
