With all that said, what are the necessary things you need to do to ensure that you minimize – to the lowest possible level – the incidences of injuries sustained from using the playground equipments? The answer to that is by fixing the root cause.
We should make sure that play structures like swings and seesaws must have a protective surface of at least 12 inches underneath them and at least 6 feet in all directions to prevent serious injuries in cases of fall. For swings, surfacing should extend twice the height of the suspending bar front and back.
You just can’t go wrong with outdoor swing sets. Children never tire of them. Maybe it has something to do with being rocked back and forth in cradles as infants, but there’s something about swinging back and forth that gets us going-put someone behind us to give a good shove or twenty and the thrills really begin.
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.
Here are some interesting ideas you might want to try for your kids’ home playground:
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.
