4.4 Conclusion Looking Forward Developing Better Playgrounds in Manitoba The trade off imbalance which has been going on all this century between natural environments converted to urban development and their substitution by standard type playgrounds has been totally in conflict with the best interests of children. This tide of change can not be stopped, but much can be done to re- establish a balance on the playground. … there is a need to depart from the stereotype acquisition and placement of ‘play structures’in flat open spaces (Landscape Australia, 1990, p. 194). Countries such as Denmark, Germany, Scotland, England, and Australia, having realized that childhood play was being threatened, have taken great strides to create appropriate and integrated ‘play places’ for their children. Manitobans can learn from these examples, and move forward in developing innovative playgrounds for their schools and neighbourhoods. The diverse examples of innovative playgrounds explored in this research paper, should serve as a starting point for future government and community initiatives that support the creation of better play environments.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
