It encourages both adult children and grandchildren to visit. When my aunt and uncle retired and downsized from their large family home, the first thing my uncle did was go out and build a big treehouse, a tire swing, and a sand box. He said otherwise no one would visit. We also found that it was visiting grandchildren who were using the room and most frequently leaving it a mess because the grandparents hadn’t been included in planning or orientations or reminders to clean.
