PLAYGROUND APPARATUS
HISTORY OF PLAYGROUND

1880s-1890s
:
Sand Gardens. (sandboxes in lots beside buildings)
• 1900s-1920s:
Model Playgrounds. (tall apparatuses built with steel tubes, merry-go-rounds, and other twirling contraptions like the Giant Stride.)
• 1930s-1940s:

Development Slowed Suspended due to Depression and War Efforts.

1940s-1950s:

Adventures or Junk Playgrounds. (adventure and exploring through caves, over landscapes, building elements using found objects, without much supervision. Some of these playgrounds were accessible.)
• 1950s-1970s:

Novelty Playgrounds. (rocket ships, slides, animal shapes, imaginative tunnels and shapes, still made of metal.)
• 1970s-1980s:

Standardized Playgrounds. (rounded edges and hard plastic equipment -- a response to rising concerns about playground safety.)
• 1980s-present:
Modern Playgrounds. (A surge in imaginative playgrounds with safe surfaces, varying themes and materials.)

SEE - SAW
This is a 2 seater see-saw provided with steel seats. The fulcrum is reinforced & the shaft is a solid rod which ensures a very long working life (excess of 10 years).

merry-go-round
is a flat disk, frequently about 2 to 3 meters in diameter, with bars on it that act as both hand-holds and something to
lean against while riding. The disk can be made to spin by pushing or pulling on its handles, either by running around the outside, or by pulling and re-grabbing as it spins, from a stationary stance
A swing is a hanging seat, the seat may be suspended from chains or ropes. Once a swing is in motion it continues to oscillate like a pendulum until external interference or drag brings it to a halt.
SWING
COMMON PLAYGROUND APPARATUS
The
monkey bars or climbing frame
, is a piece of playground equipment made of many pieces of material, such as metal pipe, metal rod, rope, plank of wood on which children can climb, hang, or sit.
SLIDE
The slide may be flat, or half cylindrical or tubular to prevent falls. Slides are usually constructed of hard plastic, PVC, aluminum and concrete and they have a smooth surface that is either straight or wavy. The user, typically a child, climbs to the top of the slide via a ladder or stairs and sits down on the top of the slide and "slides" down.
