Incorporating natural elements into new or existing play spaces can give an extra boost to children’s physical health, psychological well-being, and their ability to learn. When you think about typical schoolyards, what image first comes to mind? Most school grounds look the same, with very little variation to reflect unique aspects of each school community, the neighborhood’s ecological or geographic context, or teachers’ preferred curricula.

In the coastal town of Manhattan Beach, only 4.7% of its children were obese. Fifteen miles inland, in the town of Walnut Park, 37.0% of its children were obese. Why the difference between the two cities? One big difference is in the ethnic composition of the children. In Manhattan Beach, the healthy city, there are very few Latinos: in fact, only 7.6% of the residents are Latino. Some analysts immediately leap to a conclusion: Latino parents must not be doing a good job of managing their children’s weight. As Cantinflas would have said, “Allí está el detalle!” The communities that these families call home have an important role to play.
