About: Designed by Ken Garland & Associates, and featured within 'Structure and Substance', published by Unit Editions; 'Adventure Playgrounds by Jack Lambert as told to Jenny Pearson. A personal account of a play-leaders work', pitches the need for planners and developers to allow for the provision of adventure play spaces within developing areas - a fascinating look into using children to help inform the design of adventure playgrounds.
(Foreword) "In an ever more restricted environment, adventure playgrounds offer a unique opportunity for free play to urban children. They provide 'space where children can do those things they are normally prevented from doing', areas where they can build camps, light fires, or simply dig a hole. No one has done more to promote this exciting new concept than Jack Lambert, a young man with the Pied Piper gift for amusing the young. This book is the story of the seven years he has spent on adventure playgrounds in Britain and abroad, of his discoveries, disappointments and triumphs."
