1.My first reaction upon watching "The importance of playing with fire" was anxiety at the thought of the mess. However, seeing children playing with tools did not bring me unease as I grew up in a multi-cultural household with extremely creative, entrepreneurial parents, who thought it best to teach my brother and I how to wield tools and avoid danger. Adventure playgrounds' key philosophy may stem from outdated playgrounds that are less organized and sanitary, however, they have adapted their philosophy to be much too revolutionary for Canadian society today. There is a push in Canadian culture to make play spaces "no-risk" rather than "low-risk". Adventure playgrounds aim is to simply create a low-risk environment with unstructured play for children.

In what ways do you think adventure play could be modified to fit our culture?

2.I strongly agree with Marjorie Allen’s ideals for child’s play. I may be against the ideas of playing with fire and sharp tools unsupervised, however I still feel it is important for kids to have a space where they can be whatever they want and create as they please. Looking back on my childhood I would have loved a space like the adventure playground. I was always up for adventure and trying “Dangerous” things, so having a place where I could express that would have been amazing. Does anyone else feel they were an adventurous child? Now being older and understanding risks, it is hard to imagine kids playing in spaces like this, let alone how I would feel if I was a parent. Has anyone’s views on adventure changed since growing up? I think society needs to find a happy medium to allow kids to learn and express themselves, while limiting the possibility for extreme injury.

I look forward to discussing everyone’s opinions! I also am interested to see how peoples perspectives on adventure have changed over the course of their life.

3.My first reaction when watching this video was, where is the playground? I grew up going to the typical playground you would see at a public park or subdivision, with a slide and swing set etc. This playground, on the other hand, is very unconventional. It is made up of scrap pieces of wood, plastic and in other words, what most people see as "junk." I thought the use of junk in a giant yard as a playground is brilliant. Kids have a wild imagination and don't see the same things an adult sees. I remember my parents buying a new fridge when I was 7, and begging them to let me keep the giant cardboard box. It was junk and a waste of space in their eyes, but to me, it was a racecar, a playhouse, a rocket ship the possibilities were endless. It was just a cardboard box, but my imagination transformed it into anything I wanted it to.

The playground owners are huge stakeholders as they can be held liable if anything happens to the children. However, this is the same for any other playground. What is stopping a child from climbing on top of the highest point of a regulated, traditional play structure and jumping off because they believed it would be fun? Nothing, Curiosity will always win. Through creating play spaces like this children are truly able to be "free" and learn. They are monitored to make sure nobody is getting hurt however, they are given enough freedom to make decisions for themselves and if they need someone help is always there. I believe this is how all children should be raised. They should be watched from a distance to allow them to learn and grow. When you fall down it is nice to have someone pick you back up, but sometimes that person has to be you.
