Security of Hardware Having somebody come and inspect the playing equipment will prevent injuries. This slide was loose at the top right corner.
Drainage The water drained well off of this landing pad. Water seemed to stay gathered at the bottom of this slide.
Leaded Paint This metal train has some paint starting to deteriorate. Kids could accidently get chips of this paint on their hands and transfer this to their mouths. Could result in lead poisoning. The wood on this pavilion could probably use some chemical treatment to help strengthen the wood.
General Upkeep cont. Trashcan is full and ready to be taken out. It is wise to have some kind of maintenance program. This lady is cleaning up around the playground and inspecting for hazardous materials that could injure a child.
