6 Great Ideas For an Adult Playground

Adults on playground

The word adulthood has some serious attributes attached to it: responsibility, consequences, effort, seriousness, etc. They all bring a gloomy shade to our lives and an incredible weight on our shoulders. No wonder a lot of us like to shake the weight off by jumping around and laughing like we used to. Here is a little something which can help you and your friends sleep tight and worry-free.


Get the pub toys

When out in a pub, it often happens that we do not feel that it is enough to just sit around and drink, instead, we like to have something to bring excitement into the activity. That is precisely the reason why pubs or bars have games for you to play. This is something you can install in your backyard and easily move inside for when the colder season comes. Get an outdoor pool table, a dartboard or a foosball table. They each require about the same amount of effort as a game of cards but can steam up the atmosphere.

Clear the lawn

Have a flat piece of your lawn clear of any rocks, bumps or other obstacles, to serve as a court for various lawn games. You can install a basketball hoop, or you can use any 4 objects to make goals and play football or rugby. You can use it to play a variety of childhood games such as leapfrog, red rover, Simon says, hide and seek, etc.

Build a gym

This is a thing enjoyed by most. Even if you do not work out on a regular basis, you are bound to try out any piece of gym equipment if you find yourself next to it. One thing you will certainly need and offers various exercise options is a pull bar. Another classic piece is an inclined bench which, just like the pull bar, does not have to be store-bought but you can build one yourself. You can either make or buy some dumbbells or any other weight type for that matter. Build a rack to keep the weights on so they don’t go astray. If you have one, you can take your exercise bike outside and keep it in the garden as long as the weather allows it.

Build a putt-putt golf course

Depending on your interests, building a miniature golf course is fun on many different levels. First of all, you need to be creative or aware of where to find creative ideas for different obstacles. Next, you can have fun making them. Finally, there is a joy of playing it. You can obtain amateur golf training aids online at a reasonable price so the entire course will not end up costing you a lot.

Build a circus

Take one step away from sports to step into a circus arena. Let’s see how good you could be as a circus gymnast. One of the common toys for big kids is a trampoline. Depending on its size it can support people of all shapes and sizes. I am sure you could build one yourself, but I suggest buying one as safety is crucial here. Also, choose a safe height and place a tightrope for you and your friends to try out and practice your skills. If you have a firm upright surface you can use, build a climbing wall and race your friends to the top.

Relive the camp experience

This one is about building a summer camp, or at least one part of it. You need a fire pit and some log benches. You can get a second-handed acoustic guitar if you or any of your friends can play one and keep it handy for when you spontaneously gather around the fire and decide to sing a couple of songs. Another good and more comfortable idea for a sitting area is a swing bench or a hammock, you can never go wrong with one of those.

If you want to stay a simple child at heart, you can simply use a growth device and make a really big swing or a really wide slide. Imagination is a key ingredient to any childhood game. Try to stay young at heart, let your mind fly, and before you know it, you will be having fun in your perfect playground.
