A visit to the playground is more than fun. It lets kids exercise their bodies, brains, and social skills. It also gives them a chance for unstructured, free play that's important for healthy development. Just check that the play equipment is safe and then watch the fun happen.

Choose a playground with equipment that is geared toward your child's age, matched with their abilities, developmental level and size. For example, smaller swings intended for younger children can break if larger children use them. And smaller children using equipment designed for older children can have difficulty reaching and climbing.

According to the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission (USPSC), emergency departments treat more than 200,000 children for playground-related injuries each year. Most playground injuries happen when a child falls from the equipment onto the ground. That's why the best way to prevent injuries is to make sure the surface underneath it can help absorb and soften the impact when children land on it.

Don't let your child wear or play with anything that could get caught on equipment and become a strangulation hazard. Avoid sweatshirts with drawstrings or necklaces, for example, and keep jump ropes and pet leashes away from equipment. If your child rides a bike or scooter to the playground, he should take off his helmet while playing.

Even on the safe, age-appropriate playgrounds, adult guidance and supervision is the best way to prevent injuries. In fact, researchers say lack of supervision is linked with nearly half of playground-related injuries. So, as your child climbs, slides, swings and glides, keep an eye on the action and be ready to intervene if they are using the equipment inappropriately!

One of the most prominent features of the playground is the elaborate water-play area, built on the site of the existing wading pool, which is made up of a series of elevated walkways that are animated by sprinklers and connected to the ground with ladders and slides.

Each year, more than three million children visit Central Park's playgrounds. Playground Partners raises funds that go toward the preservation, care, and daily inspection of these cherished play spaces.

Falls are the most common type of playground injury, accounting for more than 75 percent of all playground-related injuries. Lack of or improper supervision is associated with approximately 45 percent of playground-related injuries.

Kids should always have adult supervision on the playground. Keep your eyes on young kids (and sometimes older ones) because they can't always be sure of distance and may not expect dangerous situations. Older kids like to test their limits on the playground, so it's important for an adult to keep them in check.

Be sure your kids are aware of a safe way down in case they can't complete the climb. The highest rate of injuries on public playgrounds are seen with climbing equipment. This is dangerous when not designed or used properly. Adult supervision is especially important for younger kids.

The Dream Playground Project Founders partnered with the Kenosha Achievement Center to raise funds for a fully accessible playground at Petzke Park (2820 14th Avenue). In 2012, efforts were led to raise funds to build the Dream Playground in Petzke Park.The 15,000- square-foot Dream Playground opened in October of 2015 as the City's first fully accessible playground. More than 3,000 volunteers worked to raise support and construct this amazing playground.

The mission of the Kenosha Dream Playground Project was to develop a safe, fully inclusive, accessible playground that allows children of all abilities to play together, learn from each other, value each others differences and find the strength to overcome challenges -- thus creating a truly integrated environment where compassion and acceptance can be found.

This is your chance to own a piece of the Kenosha Dream Playground! The Kenosha Dream Playground Project is selling fence pickets, engraved to your specifications, to be used on the fence surrounding the playground.

Click here for your chance to support the Kenosha Dream Playground. The playground is a one-of-a-kind 15,000 square foot space for children of all abilities to play side-by-side. Your donation dollars will go towards maintenance, upkeep and upgrades so all children can enjoy the Dream Playground for years to come.

With our 23rd Playground Build wrapping up, the Eagles remain proud of this core project rooted in the belief that every child deserves a safe place to play and learn. Vibrant school playgrounds improve attendance, increase activity, reduce injuries and violence both in the play yard and in the classroom, while increasing parent engagement and building community. We build playgrounds to invest in our children and the future of Philadelphia.

The annual community-changing playground build teams the entire Philadelphia Eagles organization, including players, coaches, and staff members, with a Philadelphia school community to transform the barren asphalt school yard into a beautiful and imaginative safe space for play and recreation. The project includes installation of a large play structure, a mini Eagles turf field, colorful murals and mosaic tables.

To install something from the Salesforce AppExchange in your Trailhead Playground, you need your playground username and password. If you don't already have your playground's credentials handy, refer to the previous unit and follow the instructions there to get them.

There is NO fee or pre-registration for participating in the program. Children can choose what activities they want to participate in. Participants range in age anywhere between 6 to 18 years. Children 7 and under should be supervised by an adult when at the playground.

Supervisors are essential to safe and inclusive outdoor play areas and playgrounds. Proper supervision minimizes major injuries, reduces behavioral referral issues, and assists in reducing minor injuries. 041b061a72
