Foam pit playing is a recreational activity in which participants enjoy unstructured play or practice acrobatic moves in a pool of padded foam blocks. The foam blocks are often lightweight and small for easy pickup, though large enough to avoid accidental ingestion by young children. Foam pits are usually surrounded by a padded surface, and may be adjacent to trampolines or other gymnastics or parkour equipment so that athletes can attempt new tricks without the fear of a hard landing. They are also enjoyed by children as a site for unstructured, creative play.
