school or local community playground, then it is very important that you take some safety precautions. Safe playground design is of the utmost of importance if we are to ensure that children can play freely without fear of serious injury.
Of course, it is not possible to completely eradicate risk from a child’s life and that is how it should be. Children need to test boundaries and the odd slip or fall will allow them to develop so that they are able to assess risk for themselves – something which is vital in life. However, safe playground design can minimize the chances of anything more serious than a minor scrape from occurring, which we can all agree is very important.
Playgrounds should be safe environments where children can experience fun and adventure without the worry that any serious harm will come to them. Parents need to be reassured that there kids will be safe at the playground or they will not allow them to play there and that would be a shame as playgrounds are amongst the most magical and exciting places for children to visit.
