Today many yards and adjoining territories are occupied with unauthorized parking lots, are unattended and littered.

It is children who know the best what they need. Children often do not perceive the projects of children’s facilities worked out by adults as the best variant of their dreams. And we would like children’s territories to be cozy and attractive, first of all, for the little ones. This is why children were attracted and their drawings will be used by specialists in their work.
