Is Your Child's Playground Safe?

Assessing the Risks

Seek out age-appropriate equipment.

Preschoolers and school-age kids need different types of play equipment. Look for a playground that provides separate areas for older and younger kids.

Go for guardrails.

Playground equipment that has raised platforms or ramps -- the top platform of a slide, for example -- should have guardrails to help prevents falls.
