Let rectangular play area be ABCD

AB = CD = 36m [length]

AD = BC = 24.5 m [breadth]

Radius of the semicircle =`1/2`(𝐵𝐶) = 𝑅

=`1/2`× (24.5) = 12.25𝑐𝑚

Area of playground = (Area of rectangle) + 2(Area of semicircle)

= (𝐴𝐵 × 𝐵𝐶) +` (1/2pir^2) 2`

= (36 × 24.5) +` (1/2×22/7× 12.25 × 12.25) 2`

= 882 + 471.625

= 1353.625 𝑚2
