Senior playgrounds idea catches on

You might recall that sometime last year I posted on a senior playground which opened in Blackley, Manchester in 2008, while similar playgrounds are already proving popular in Europe and China. Well, last week one opened in Hyde Park in London. There is an excellent article describing this on the Age UK website.
Nick Smurthwaite did a review and went with members of his family.

This is an awesome idea! Surprisingly, my grandmother who is in her 90s keep her mind and reflexes toned by playing with children's games. She has boardgames, playdoh, magic slates, soft squeaky balls, playing cards, etc.
