Of course playgrounds provide lots of fun for youngsters that’s what they are designed to do! But equally important is the fact that playgrounds also enhance youngsters’ overall physical fitness. Among the many benefits of playground activity is an increase in flexibility, balance, and agility. And the need to keep children physically fit has never been more crucial. Over 30 percent of children between the ages of 6 and 11 are overweight, and 15 percent are obese. With this in mind, Lea Park and Play offer a full line of athletic equipment for parks and playgrounds, that works just as well for children as it does for adults.
The Little Tikes Commercial line of outdoor fitness equipment provides opportunities for the more concentrated forms of physical activity which are designed to develop specific skills and capabilities. And since they are made by Little Tikes, you know that they are the safest products of their kind, exceeding the strictest industry guidelines and standards, including those established by the Consumer Products Safety Commission (CPSC), the American Society for Testing and Materials (ASTM), and the Canadian Standard Association (CSA). And they are available in an almost infinite variety of colors and design schemes!
At Lea Park and Play, you will find a complete selection of outdoor playground equipment designed with an eye toward fitness, including balance beams, beam runs, challenge ladders, jump-touch beams, parallel bars, pull-up bars, sit-up benches, spring-up bars, stretch poles, and vertical ladders. And these components can also be purchased in packages as “fitness circuits,” which offer various combinations of outdoor fitness elements. A great way to introduce children to fitness or add something to the playground for adults to do while their kids play, within easy viewing distance so they can still keep watch.
