Gauteng, South Africa’s smallest province, is the home of more than a quarter of South Africans. With the amount of people living in Gauteng and the way the population increases every year, the cities in this province naturally grow and expand. Office parks are mushrooming in residential suburbs and flats are being erected everywhere to cater for the growing workforce.
Bigger and bigger buildings are going up, new roads snake all over with billboards that shout down their ads to the passing cars, and new shopping malls (each purporting to have something unique) are popping up before your very eyes all over Gauteng.
Unfortunately, with all the good also comes bad. Every open area becomes prime property for something new, like houses, offices, or parking spaces. Sooner or later, public parks have to be used for these new developments. The loss of these playgrounds can leave parents with a new problem – the problem of keeping the young ones busy in a healthy and active way.
In the era we live in, almost everything in our lives revolves around technology, and unfortunately, this is particularly prevalent in children. Kids who are growing up now would rather play on the iPad or Xbox than out on the playground.
Some parks can be hotspots for crime and are therefore not safe to let your kids wander around. In addition, many of these parks have fallen into disrepair.
As a solution, many parents are investing in their own jungle gyms and playground equipment at home. This is an excellent way to keep your kids active and keep them safe at the same time safe. Outdoor equipment is a great investment for your young ones, as it can keep them active and entertained for hours on end.
Outdoor equipment is also a huge benefit for children because it gets them to play outside in sunlight and fresh air. Playing on jungle gyms helps children learn different skills and abilities, as it teaches them how to overcome obstacles and problems they face. Playing outside and on playground equipment helps them to use their imagination and be more creative. This boosts their confidence and is very good exercise for them.
