    playground

    For the school playground, half of it is covered while another half isn't.

    1. What do we call the playground which is covered?
    2. What do we call the playground which is not covered?

    Thank you.

    That would suggest to me the floor, not the roof.

    Right. I thought that's what Ju meant. I've never seen a roofed playground.

    Here's one: Crestwood School, Eastleigh. | Flickr - Photo Sharing! When I taught at this school, it was known as 'the crescent', because of its shape.
