[video: scene fades into an elevated panning view from left to right of a large playground with four different play spaces. On the far left is a row of swings with children swinging. In the center is a three towered structure with three large silver pillars and at the top of each pillar is an enclosed hexagonal pod. There are enclosed angled climbing tunnels connecting the left and right pods to the highest center pod. At the base of the three pillars just off the ground is a large net climber with accessible belted ramping for walking and climbing. Also, in the center of the playground is a third structure with open hexagonal pods with connecting belt climbers and other geometric shaped climbers along with slides and monkey bars. To the right is a smaller version of the third playground structure. All the way to the right is a three-dimensional hexagonal piped structure the sprays misting water. A boy shouts.]
Boy: Down town!

As the camera pans away from the structure a boy rides down its large wide stainless-seal slide.]
[video: camera switches to a view of the fourth play structure, a smaller version of the third. A boy climbs on his hands and knees up a belted climber up into the first hexagonal pod of the structure. With a top down view of a girl at the entrance to a blue slide the girl in a pink outfit rides down a curved slide. Scene switches to a top down view of two boys as they peak through the hexagonal opening in the center of a belted climber. A young girl kneels next to a play panel where she slides plastic shapes to set into their matching cut outs. The camera focuses on the girl’s hand as she spins the triangular shape. With an elevated view a boy stands on a disc connected to a rope with geometrically shaped knobs. He transfers himself from one rope to the next.]
Boy: This is hard.
[video: a boy kneels on the ground next to a play panel with three different sized metal domes with a zig-zag shaped line allowing for a triangular shaped piece of plastic to slide up to the other metal domes. The boy rotates the triangle piece trying to work it through the track of the zig-zag line. Scene switches to a boy as he walks down belted steps of a play structure.
