It is in the common area, and they took the approach of "asking forgiveness rather than approval." And no one complained!, at least not publicly. The kids love it! It is nicely nestled in a place that feels private, but with lots of eyes on. IMHO, if those of us want who live in intergeneration communities, want to keep and attract families with kids, we need to be willing to make reasonable accommodation for kids play.... fort building, bike jumps and trampolines are the kinds of play many remember as favorite childhood memories....but the insurance companies and attorneys would likely tell us to forbid such things. Let's not let the fear of liabilities ruin kids play. Life is full of risks, and one of them is the risks of growing up being better at video game play than creating your own play in the great outdoors.
