    Fantastic new playgrounds that have a strong focus on nature play are popping up all over the Perth area. Researchers at the University of WA have found that natural playgrounds provide children with more opportunities than typical pre-formed playgrounds to develop gross-motor skills.

    Bannister Creek Nature Playground in Lynwood combines traditional play equipment with more natural elements, providing opportunities for children to use their imagination and explore.

    The playground is predominantly sand and wood chip based and is shaded by lots of big trees. Bannister Creek runs, behind a fence, alongside the playground.

    The playground contains lots a whole host of play equipment that is mainly constructed from wood as opposed to metal, giving the play area a lovely earthy feel.
