What are the benefits of sliding

Commercial playground equipment slides are a thrilling experience that contributes to essential aspects of motor-skill development. Children train and improve agility when climbing up a playground slide and balance, coordination, and spatial awareness when shooting down: all necessary skills when judging distance and navigating safely in traffic.

Slides for playgrounds require younger children to anticipate cause and effect and manage rhythms. The height and length of the playground slide train children's judgment of distance and speeds. These are critical cognitive abilities that are crucial to childhood development and can be learned by sliding in a fun playground.
