Additional Guidelines and Recommendations

  • Appropriate use zones are present around play equipment to prevent injury from:
    • Falling from one structure into another.
    • Swing hitting a person, structure or another piece of equipment.
    • Spaced so children will not run into each other as they get on and off the equipment.
  • More information on appropriate use zones can be found in the “Fall Protection and Use Zones” walkthrough.
  • Note: Hard plastic, wood or metal swings should not be used, as children can be injured if hit by them.
