Keeping a playground clean is an essential part of building and maintaining a playground. Many playgrounds across Canada are closed to help slow the spread of coronavirus. Having a plan in place to keep your playground clean when they reopen will be important to help ensure a positive play experience for the whole community.
Clean and Disinfect
Cleaning and disinfecting your park is a critical part of safe playground maintenance. Our playground equipment is made from easy to clean surfaces like plastic, metal and steel. Here are three easy upgrades to make cleaning your playground easier.
Playground surfacing options like Pour-in-Place or Recycled Rubber are highly durable and low-maintenance options for playgrounds. With smooth surfaces, these choices make it easier to clean the entire area. These options also improve accessibility to the playground for children of all abilities.
Litter and Waste Bins
Adding (more) waste and recycling bins to your park helps encourage people to maintain the cleanliness of the play area. Making sure these receptacles are clearly marked and easy to access can help limit the litter and garbage debris on the playground itself.
An easier-to-clean alternative to wooden seating, benches made of steel and plastic help you adhere to your specific playground cleaning strategies. They are also great additions to a playground to give children and families a place to rest or socialize during and after play.
Make a Plan
