Many injuries that happen on a playground or around a playset have to do with the integrity of the surface, as children often fall off of or jump from equipment, fall when running, and most likely roughhouse on the ground.

Therefore spending lots of money on buying very expensive playground equipments is not a guarantee of the child’s safety when he or she is using it. In fact statistics show that over two hundred thousand accidents resulting from injuries and wounds sustained in the playgrounds are treated annually. This rounds up to over five hundred occurring on a daily basis. Injuries that can be sustained from using the playground equipments include joint dislocations, bone fractures, concussions occurring as a result of the head hitting the ground and a host of others.
Playgrounds and playground equipment can provide hours of entertainment for children of all ages. There are especially liked due to the fact they usually involve apparatus which children cannot play with at home. Playgrounds are no longer limited to just a simple jungle gym or outdoor climbing frame, sandpit and slide but come in a huge variety of shapes, colours, textures and there is even musical equipment!
You also need to think about how high the equipment is-if the child is standing on top, their body should never be more than twelve feet above the ground. Any higher, and you might as well have laid down concrete.
