bridging the gaps

Could bridging the gaps between generations create new opportunities for improving wellbeing? The appropriate parent-child behavior can greatly promote the growth process of the next generation. The famous education writer David Soble indicates that direct exposure to nature is essential for children’s physical and emotional health, improving their cognitive abilities and resistance to negative stresses and depression. Therefore, playing outdoors with family members is very significant for children. In Dundee, on average each hour 40 families visit Baxter Park at the weekend, though almost all the play facilities are focused on children, so that parents can only stand beside the area when waiting for their children. Bridging the Gaps is a project that transforms Baxter Park and in turn builds a creative environment in which family members can play together. This would strengthen communication between children and parents through outdoor play, and create new opportunities for improving their wellbeing.
