Children in the 19th century did not have a formal playground. The stadium originated in the German "Sand Garden" in 1885 and first appeared in Boston, USA in 1886. Until the early 20th century, the stadium was still uncommon in public places.
But with the development of industrialization and urbanization, the focus on public welfare has also increased. Humanitarians see the playground as a solution to crowded shelters, poor air quality and social isolation. This new concept can keep children away from dangerous streets and help them develop a healthy body, good habits, social skills and fun to be a child.
1906, the Playground Association of America formed to promote ideas of playgrounds to communities, including benefits, construction, layout and design, and the conduct and activities to occur on playgrounds. Contemporary literature dictated that an ideal, proper playground would have separate play sections and athletic fields for boys and girls; would be supervised; and would feature shelters and toilet/bathing facilities, shaded spaces, garden plots, and swimming or wading pools.
Playgrounds were not free-form in the early 1900s. People were trained as instructors to teach children necessary lessons and organize their play. Play could include equipment lessons, parades, theater productions, and other activities.
