What unit of measurement would be used to measure around a playground and why? I think either yards or feet. Leaning toward yards but don't know why, please help. Or feet because of greater distance --I rally don't know. Help please!

It depends upon the size of the playground. But yards or meters would be the best measure of the perimeter of most playgrounds.
