A Playground for Grandma

150_over60playgroundBritain’s first playground for people over age 60 has opened in Manchester. The specially-designed equipment provides not only fun, but movement and exercise to benefit the elderly.
Residents' association chairman Joan FitzGerald said: "When we tested it all the people we took in were over 70 and I have never heard so much laughing. I believe you are never too old to play and this also helps keep you fit."

The playground is next to a children’s playground, so children can watch their grandparents having fun. Link -via Unique Daily

this kind of stuff exists in China for YEARS.
It's not designed for playing nor fun, but for exercises, keeping seniors in good condition.

I've tried those, it makes you move just like in a fitness club :D

Now, if only they'd make playgrounds for anyone in between the age of "child" and "pensioner"! (Or at least let the rest of us use the ones that exist, now.)
