Summary
In building a Beckwith-designed playground, everybody pitches in - men, women, and children. The result is a play are that reflects the real will of the sponsoring community group, and a play environment liberally drawn from the ideas of the children who will enjoy it. Unorthodox materials and structures are used. The overall plan is often extended as the work progresses. The first step is awareness that a playground children will delight in and care for with pride need not, ought not, be the usual sterile layout of asphalt, slides, sandboxes, and swings. Throughout the text, 55 schematic drawings and 215 sequetial photographs, the reader is shown every detail of planning and building a creative, innovative playground with volunteer labor and amateur skills
