area = length * width
area of playground + area of path = total area
area of path = total area  area of playground
The path has the same dimensions on each side because it surrounds a square. Thus, 7 meters is added onto each side of the square playground, and the total of each side becomes 67m.
Find the total area:
67m * 67m = 4489m^{2}
Area of the square playground:
60m * 60m = 3600m^{2}
4489m^{2}  3600^{2} = 889m^{2}
