Kids area fence or wall?

I'm, hopefully, finishing the build out of our gym. This includes creating a "kids" area. We are starting with simple open floor space at one end of the gym with a wall on 1 or 2 sides depending on exactly where we set it up.

I'm looking for suggestions for safe, attractive option for the outer perimeter. My Google searches so far have not yielded any good solutions. Seems there must be a better solution then custom built half walls.

Some kind of simple door or gate as well.

Thanks for any suggestions.

Depends a lot on how tall you want it to be and how many linear feet you need to cover. They sell baby play yards with gates built in, but they are low and not very sturdy and very expensive for what you get.

There are probably quite a few options at your local home depot. That being said I would probably built a 4 ft high wall anchored to the ground and drywall both sides of it with a 1x6 stained wooden cap on the top. You can probably build it for about $5 / foot all in and it would be really easy since you would only have to tape and mud the drywall joints every 8 feet with nothing at the top or bottom since the 4ft sheet would cover the entire height.
