Anyone with an interest or stake in children’s play environments will discover that information on playspaces is plentiful. Opinions, professional and otherwise abound. Add to that the various safety standards currently in publication, and confusion can easily arise in trying to determine priorities related to play value and safety.
For every given playground-related topic, there is a myriad of interpretations and angles, as well as the charged emotions that sometimes go along with them. This was the original catalyst for the establishment of our original discussion group in 1999, and will continue to be why we have evolved* and taken up the challenge to be the national, collective voice for playground practitioners in Canada.
This site is a valuable resource for anyone involved in the ownership, management, development, or supervision of children’s playground environments, or with any other related connection. Members have access to the interactive forum where all the latest news, opinions and action unfold.
We hope & trust that you will find this site helpful.
