How this cause brings people in the community together
Playgrounds act as focal points for the community, providing a meeting area for children and parents. Most children want to be able to play outside in the area near where they live, a local park will attract children and because they are there, they play inventively in whatever way they want. Parents can be isolated due to our location, meeting other mums at the play area is hugely important.
