Embankment Slide, 3 feet wide
The Embankment Slide is extremely attractive. It makes children loop uphill and slide down again and again. The Embankment Slide will be a main attraction in a playground. Apart from the immense thrill of sliding, the Embankment Slide also supports children in developing important motor skills such as the sense of balance and space. These are important in managing the world confidently and securely. The repeated loop of sliding and running back up for one more go is great development of cardio and muscle strength. Collecting the courage to go down the tall slide adds a sweet sensation of achievement. This is a social-emotional benefit, which is further enhanced by the cooperation and turn-taking skills that children develop in going down the slide together. The extra width allows for that, and also allows for caregivers to join in the play.
