Introduction

Playgrounds or parks are specifically designed and created to enable children to play there. Modern playgrounds or parks contain recreational equipment such as:

  • Slides
  • Seesaws
  • Swings
  • Climbing frames
  • Mazes

This equipment helps in developing physical strength, coordination and flexibility, and supports social and emotional development.

Safety is a very important aspect in order to prevent injuries from playground equipment. Certain features of playground design need to be evaluated during the engineering process to provide complete safety to children and prevent the likelihood of injuries. Some important aspects that need to be considered include:

  • Fall height of the equipment
  • Likelihood of falling from equipment
  • Materials used for the surface under and around the equipment to prevent serious injury from a fall
