Inclusive outdoor recreation spaces provide a safe place where kids of all ages and abilities can play and interact together. These spaces don’t just take the physical needs of children into consideration, but also their social, emotional and cognitive needs.
Without safety surfacing, serious head and bodily injuries would occur on your playground. Surfacing materials like rubber mulch and engineered wood fiber help absorb the shock from slips and falls.
Playground safety surfacing creates spaces where kids can run and play without getting hurt. This surface lies underneath and around playground structures, swings, slides, climbers and other equipment to protect kids if they fall.
When a playground is first built, everything is new and tip top condition. But this doesn’t last for long when kids and families start playing at the park daily. This is why you want to choose safety surfacing that offers long term durability.
Did you know that a playground’s layout influences how children play, create, imagine and socialize? Most playgrounds are consciously designed to be safe, enriching learning environments.
Playgrounds have always been an important escape for kids, but this couldn’t be more true during a pandemic. Many kids across the country are still at home e-learning, which means they’re spending more time cooped up indoors and less time with their peers.
