Gretchen, Where is this playground pictured? When I was traveling around the world, my kids and I saw some adult playgrounds in China. They were obviously well-used, and still operating when we were there, so perhaps it's not a new concept in China. Early every morning elderly people would get up, drink tea, and walk around the neighborhood, exercise - qi gong and / or the playgrounds. My kids even used the equipment but they were obviously for adults.
