Playground for elderly persons
Via delicious, I ran across this short news in Times about playgrounds for elderly persons:
The idea was hatched in Finland, where researchers have experimented with what they call “three-generational play”.
Why do I blog this? that's relevant, when thinking about social cohesion and urban planning, why not devoting places for people that would enjoy such activities. Much of the energy is focused on kids playground, why not thinking about other users. This does not mean that it should be a parkour for elders but there is surely a design issue here.
