This is just a quick update to share a cool infographic I found at, that illustrates how to design a safe playground. Most of it is total common sense with regard to surfacing, age-appropriate equipment, etc, but the thing I loved was the inclusion of fencing, to ensure that children don’t run into traffic.


I really hope we can one day have a similar attitude in New Zealand, when the playground design process automatically includes fencing if there are any clear hazards nearby!
