My sister in Edmonton, Alberta has them on her driveway. They have some give to them, so they might be good for playing on, and they have holes (but not big enough holes to be problematic for vehicles or, I think, wheelchairs).

Hi all,

Another fine "green" material for pathways is paving made from recycled
tires. They look like paving stones, but they're less expensive ($1.70 a square foot) and can be made to look like paving stones or smooth. There
are a few providers around the country--the closest one to me is Waste
Tire Products. Contact info is: Will Tasto, (530) 865-4588,

For comparison, putting in permeable pavers (paving stones with gaps for
rainwater to penetrate) cost around $10-15 per square foot.

Good luck,
