Tailoring Playground Surfaces

When designing a church playground, the surface is paramount. For toddlers and young children, a soft and forgiving surface such as rubber mulch or poured rubber is essential to minimize injuries from falls. For older children and teens, options like artificial turf or rubber tiles provide durability and ease of maintenance. Pacific Playground recommends the ideal surface based on safety, budget, and aesthetic considerations.

A successful church playground caters to a wide range of interests and abilities. Incorporating a mix of traditional swings, slides, climbing structures, and imaginative play elements ensures that there's something for everyone to enjoy. Additionally, inclusive equipment such as wheelchair-accessible swings or sensory play panels promotes inclusivity and accessibility within the church community.
