The equipment has to be both proposed and planted very vigilantly. There has to be a proper division of the play area for all age groups like toddlers, pre school students, small children and adolescents. When the plan is to make a large commercial playground one should know that for example the toddler equipment cannot be placed near to the skate board parks.
A simple, cheap addition is a basketball hoop-hang it low enough for your kids, and of course, a chunk of pavement is typically an asset for dribbling. Don’t let it hold you back though-as I mentioned before, my brothers and I played by shooting through a bicycle rim nailed to a piece of dirty plywood, and believe it or not, we were dribbling on hard dirt that had been swept clean.
Also it is of primary importance to design the surface with rubber and/or grass; you can even get special colored safety matting these days. The flooring should absorb the shocks and strains when a child falls or rolls on the ground, thus making it a safer place for children.
Setting Boundaries – If your backyard currently lacks a good boundary system – a fence or hedges – make sure that they are added during the construction of the playground. These boundaries keep the kids in and strangers out as well as defining the area of play.
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.
One has to study the place of playground. Gather information carefully, like how an adult can access the playground with their children, if commercial then you may wish to consider parking areas, surfacing or maybe even bike stands and shelters. Also you may wish to consider the weight of children at any given time, this of course will come into play when you have an initial design and structure of the playground, most good companies can accommodate to your regulated specifications, they are even there to help you with age limits, weight and size if need be.
