The Trample Path invites older children to come and play. The swaying movements and the combination of open, asymmetric steps and rubber inserts make crossing the Trample Path exciting and thrilling. The Trample Path bounces back to the child's movements, adding a requirement of concentration to passing. This trains the sense of balance, which is fundamental for the child's confidence in moving securely. A good sense of balance is additionally fundamental for cognitive skills such as concentration. Playing on the Trample Path develops important social skills such as taking turns and cooperation when children pass each other on the steps. The black rubber steps can function as breakpoints. They additionally invite seated, bouncy breaks for friends to meet and talk.
