Notes: A fascinating look at children's play spaces, and how to leave room for children to develop their own play, in particular in the 'sterile' environments of new housing in the 1960s. The author was the first fellow of the Landscape Institute, and instigator of the Children Act 1948. An important and interesting book, with a great deal of contemporary relevance.
