5 Playgrounds That Will Make You Want To Be a Kid Again

Oh, to be young again

Kids—they've got it good these days. Not only can they watch their favorite shows in the palms of their tiny hands, or learn the alphabet from an app on an iPad, they can also gallivant through architectural jungle gyms and frolic in psychedelic playgrounds.

In anticipation of Extraordinary Playscapes, an exhibition curated by Design Museum Boston and hosted by the Boston Society of Architects/AIA and BSA Foundation opening next month, we present five of the coolest—and most envy-inducing—play spaces built for the future generation.
