Playgrounds and activity parks

Park playgrounds are important playgrounds for children and joint living rooms for residents. Their pleasantness, maintenance and basic renovation are of continuous importance. In addition to site-specific conditions, the planning of new playgrounds will account for users of varying ages, as well as for versatile and safe physical exercise facilities. There will be 142 park playgrounds in Vantaa in 2015.

The condition of the playgrounds' equipment and furnishings affects children's safety. Maintenance personnel will monitor the condition and safety of the park playgrounds' equipment in connection with every maintenance visit. In addition, the equipment of all the park playgrounds will be inspected at least four times a year, i.e., at three-month intervals. Any defects noticed during maintenance visits and safety inspections will be repaired as soon as possible.
