Review Question

Question: What is the problem with using this play equipment on an agritourism operation?

View Answer

This equipment is designed for home play areas, not public play areas.


Play areas on agritourism operations are public playgrounds, and as such, play equipment designed for a home playground is not used.

Additional Guidelines and Recommendations

  • In addition to using appropriate equipment, all play area equipment must be assembled/installed according to manufacturer’s instructions or by professionals trained to install the equipment.
  • Equipment must be securely anchored to prevent equipment overturns, and anchor bases are covered with appropriate ground cover to prevent injury.
  • No materials are used in the equipment or installation that could result in children inhaling, ingesting or absorbing hazardous materials, such as lead-based paints, creosote or chromated copper arsenate (wood treatment).1

Note:Ground cover should be present under any equipment where the child is not at ground level.
