Also they are safe because there is a springing centering device that prevents intense contact with the ground providing a safe environment. Also they are safe because there are handles at both ends so the kids can play without falling off and they are safe because the material used is steel. For the most part steel is durable, strong, supportive and more

Also the small kids playground is safe for all around the play set there is a 3ft tall railing that has cubed rails so kids heads can't get stuck. The railing also makes this play set safe for it supports the kids when they get on or off the different equipment . this play set is safe because the materials used for the equipments (plastic and steel) are very strong, durable and need low maintenance. Also they are safe because they are 3 ft long so if kids do fall of the equipment they do not get hurt. the steps on the ladder are only 20cm apart providing safety. The play set is safely seccured by a product called tru loc which holds materials together and it easy to install.

We put garbage bins in because it will help the environment be more safe for the kids playing. Also we put these garbage bins in for they will help people enjoy Twist & Turns Park more for it will be a clean environment. It will cost $100 to put 2 garbage bins in
It is safe firstly because it has a tube side that is made out of durable plastic that need low maintenance and it is very strong and supportive for the user. The tube slide on the play set is also safe because it has a soft landing for the playground ground that is made of rubber mulch. Again it is safe because their it non shatter plastic windows on the slide that allows light to come in so kids can see and so they do not get scared. Also around the whole playground there is steel fence with curved lines providing securities for your face will not get stuck, you will not fall off and it will help to get on or off the equipment. . Another feature that provides security is 3ft tall latter, a 6ft tall rope climber and a tower that is 9ft tall that leads to the slide. All these features are made of strong, durable, and low maintenance materials like steel, plastic and aluminum. . All these features have the railing beside them for support to get on or of the equipment. The tower on the playground is made of strong plastic and it has a dome on the top which makes the structure stronger and long lasting. The steps on the ladder are 30 inches apart allowing the kids to get up and down safely also the steps on the rope climber are 35 inches apart again allowing a safe trip up or down. The rope climber and the play set is held together by strong plastic also called Tru-Loc.

We chose to put benches in the Twist & Turns Park because it is a nice spot for guardians to watch the younger children also it is a good spot to just sit and relax for the bench is made of aluminum and wood meaning it is rust free. This bench is also handicap friendly for if they want to get off their wheelchairs and sit down there is enough space and support. The materials used are aluminum and wood making the total cost for 2 benches 1368$

The floor of the playground is the most important feature for it has to be safe of anything. That is why we chose to put in natural rubber mulch for it is is flat surface meaning no puddles will be able to form so kids won't slip, trip or fall. Also we chose to put this kind of floor in for it decreases the impact when kids do fall for it is soft material.This kind of floor does not need a lot of maintenance and it will not cause stone, or wood chip wars/ fights because all the rubber is in one piece. Rubber mulch will be everywhere meaning there will be no materials that kids could trip,fall,or hit and hurt themselves on. We chose to put NATURAL rubber mulch for it contains less chemicals because it is a natural product. All these stuff provide safety

The Railing
The railing of the play set is made of steel for it need to be strong to hold the kids weight and to help them get on or off the different equipment on the playground. The rails on the railing are curbed and are close together so the kids heads or other body parts don’t get stuck. We chose these railing for the material used is strong, supportive , long lasting so the kids are safe. The railings are 3ft tall so kids don’t fall off the play set and get hurt.
