Ideas for a Family-Friendly Outdoor Living Area

Don’t allow your outdoor area to go unused. Instead, treat your empty backyard or front porch as a blank canvas simply waiting to be transformed into a usable space according to your vision. You can turn it into a recreational outdoor living space with these family-friendly ideas.

Ideas for a Family-Friendly Outdoor Living Area


Your children and their friends would have a lovely time playing on swings, seesaws and metal slides. Not only can this easily become their favorite spot, but it would also encourage them to grow up with an active lifestyle.

Mini Golf Course

Who says games are just for kids? Both adults and children can enjoy a mini-golf course. You can host celebrations and parties and stir a friendly competition with guests. To top it off, you can have fun incorporating a gorgeous landscape design with different golf course themes.


Why not spend a relaxing afternoon on a hammock? It’s a great way to bond with your family and friends, especially during warm summer nights. Adding a hammock in your backyard paves the way for a socializing spot just outside your house. You don’t even have to settle for a two-person hammock, since there are countless designs available for more people, including those for children.

Basketball Court

Basketball is a great way to exercise and instill sportsmanship in your children. It’s one of the easiest sports you can incorporate at home because it doesn’t take up much space to install a half-court. It’s both fun and healthy for you and your family.
