Natural Playgrounds Company built a slide into a constructed hill at an elementary school as shown here in Glens Falls, N.Y. The embankment slide is safer than tower slides with ladders. Scattered boulders, random dirt steps, rough terrain and varied plantings add to the rich textures and varied experiences on Natural Playgrounds.
