Why aren't there playgrounds for adults?

Adults will readily play when given the permission and opportunity. I think adult playgrounds could be one step towards making society more approving of play.

    Jun 13 2012: I agree that there are forms of play available for adults. I don't think we should do away with the more complex forms of play, but there is something to be said for simplicity. Just hopping on the swings with a friend, going down a slide, or being spun on a merri-go-round. I occasionally go to playgrounds with friends now, but most equipment is too small and you can't really go on a nice day because they are too packed with kids.

        Jun 13 2012: Hahaha yea.... I definitely want kids to be able to play and feel too bad to take up equipment that they want to use.
