How old is too old for the Playground?

So I should have been more specific.. I notice a lot of people get annoyed when older children play on the playground. Most of the time the older kids (usually over 12) are very rude and are not very gentle around smaller children when they are running around the playground..

So I guess my question should be..how do you feel when older children are playing rough on the playground equipment..?

I remember going to the playground when I was 17 and 18. Not necessarily to play, but to hang out with other friends. I dont think there is an age limit.

i agree. i'm 20 and still enjoy being there whether it's to just swing and take my mind off things or if i'm playing with my daughter.

For the equipment most post age 12 as limit but i say 10 yr old due to the pushiness of the age.   As for playing in the grass area, no age limit.

i really hate taking my kids to the play ground just to find nasty words and pictures drawn and carved on the play things and such.  we drove by the neighborhood playground the other day and saw maybe 10 about 15 year olds just hanging out.  but they were taking up all the play area from the much younger kids that were trying to play.  i honestly do not see a reason for a teenager to be at a playground.  i would say between the ages of 12 or 13 and parenthood there is no reason to be at a playground.
