The Adventure Playground is no place for Helicopter Parents. It's an evolving space that allows kids to build things like forts, decorate it as they like, and then tear it down and try something else. It's People's Park meets Survivor.
This place is creative, physical and scares the hell out of some parents who want to jump right in and protect Junior at the first scratch or skinned knee. I only wonder how long the City of Berkeley can fend off the legal hounds.
My advice? Let the Kid take chance, think for him/her self, and thrive. Mine did. Pounding nails, riding on zip lines, playing King of the Mountain, and getting dirty goes a long way on the road to self confidence and problem solving.Recommended for:Family Travelers
