What kind of recreational spaces will increase quality of life as we age?

Play is a vital need in enhancing the quality of life for all ages, especially the elderly. Research suggests that meaningful play among the older population greatly helps to foster connectedness, cultivate oneself and others, and contribute to society. A corroboration of literature findings aims to elucidate how recreational spaces around the world can facilitate meaningful, and active usage by their older population. The goal is to highlight creative concepts, models and practical solutions to address senior citizens’ psycho-social needs.
