Outdoor play areas should satisfy a child’s needs
to their age. Paths created between
each play area will allow easy access for adults
Security is essential; outdoor play areas and
equipment must comply with the Children’s Playspaces
and Equipment standard of the Canadian
Standards Association, commonly known as the CSA
standard. This will avoid serious incidents.
Water basins and abrupt ground level changes are
not recommended. Guardrails and barriers can
minimal protection. Moreover, an appropriate
thickness of impact attenuating material is required
to soften potential falls; also, an opaque peripheral
fence will contribute to noise reduction.
