A Difficult Truth: Magazine article from 2004 uploaded
August 22nd 2011

An article first written for the magazine of the playground equipment manufacturer Sutcliffe Play (www.sutcliffeplay.co.uk) has been uploaded on www.marc-armitage.eu

Written in 2004 the article, titled ‘A difficult Truth’, challenged playground designers and builders to look at playground provision in a new way. It also stated that,we adults not only have a very negative attitude towards children and what they do but when it comes down to it we simply don’t like children. How else can we explain the contradiction of adults who express fears for the safety of their children when playing outside, but yet are not prepared to accept a communal playground being built close to and in amongst their homes.
