Despite facing the risk of serious injuries, children of all ages cannot resist climbing up a rope ladder, swinging from monkey bars, and venturing on to the many amenities that playgrounds have to offer. These colorful, interactive arenas provide sensory, motor and social interactions for children of all ages. They are often used for "mommy and me" play dates, recess time, and general family enjoyment. They can serve as a fun way for children to get exercise while building coordination and making new friends. Unfortunately, not all playground equipment is designed, installed and maintained in a safe way that minimizes the risk of injury to children.
