Abstract [en]

Designing a playground that attracts the child for a long time can be challenging. Studies have found that the best way is to encounter nature with the playing equipment. Natural playgrounds are not only more interesting for the child, but they are also more beneficial for their well-being alongside with incorporating the eco-system in a positive way. Design guidelines were developed based on a study of literature reviews and theoretical work, as well as doing a case study in the city of Karlskrona and a site analysis for the chosen site. Many documents from the municipality were studied and analyzed. The results indicates that there are several techniques and guidelines which have to be implemented in order to achieve the main goal of the paper and to be able to turn the disadvantages into advantages, which should be implemented more carefully by the municipality. Children’s preferences are discussed as a way of making a better understanding and a better planning for the future playgrounds.
