  • It is recommended that on site adult supervision for children of all ages be present while playground equipment is in use.
  • Please refrain children from walking close to, in front of, behind or between moving items.
  • Refrain children from twisting swing chains or ropes since this may reduce the strength of these items.
  • Warn children to avoid swinging empty seats.
  • Teach children to sit in center of swings with their full weight on the swing seats.
  • Teach children to use the playground equipment in the intended manner.
  • Teach children not to get off play equipment while still in motion.
  • Parents should make sure children are dressed appropriately. For example; wear well fi tting clothing, shoes, avoid ponchos, and scarves or any loose fi tting clothing, which is potentially hazardous while using the playground equipment.
  • Refrain children from climbing on playground equipment when wet.
  • Check all nuts and bolts twice monthly during the usage season for tightness. Tighten as required. It is particularly important to check & tighten bolts at the beginning of each season.
