Many par­ents think the ideal back­yard for chil­dren is a level one with room for ball games but this can of­ten re­sult in a fairly dull space. Con­sider these ideas to spice up the yard.

Tram­po­lines get a lot of bad press but they’re great to help kids with bal­ance, agility, spa­tial aware­ness and even anx­i­ety. Look for one that meets Aus­tralian stan­dards.

Change the lev­els to in­crease steps, pro­vide ca­sual seat­ing and en­cour­age imag­i­na­tive play.

In­stall a pool. It’s the ul­ti­mate leisure fa­cil­ity for the whole fam­ily, whether you’re keen to in­crease your fit­ness or you just want to splash out with the kids.
