Sounds OK to me - it seems to me that the main differences from a
"typical" playground can be treated as attributes (indoor=yes,

My reading of "commonly" in that sentence implies that there is no
need for them to be small, nor outdoor. It indicates that the sentence
is just an illustration, not a constraint. I think the sentence works
for a first-language speaker, but if you think it needs to be clearer
(for non-native speakers), please do edit.
