Play parks

Allowing the use of play parks for children, only if supervised by an adult and only when there is none else there. I know for 1 that my toddler misses parks a lot and being able to use 1 would benefit us a lot. I would suggest that if passing a play park on the daily walk is noone else was there it would be ok to play and if others are there to walk on and try again another day.

Why the contribution is important

Ot is important for kids to have fun and the use of play parks for toddlers helps with many aspects of learning, hand eye coordination, dexterity, courage problem solving etc. If noone is around and hands are washed after using surely this must be safe.

    It's proving very difficult to keep a 2 year old entertained at home and also making sure she is getting enough exercise. I'm sure every parent of a toddler could assess their own personal circumstances and their individual households to figure out whether taking their child to a playpark is safe or not.

    100% agree, even if there are other kids but keep to 1 child/household per piece of play equipment.
    Then cleaned each night.
    Ridiculous that they were closed in the first place.

    Who is going to clean these parks? That’s really the ultimate question. Parks are probably filled with germs without COVID, can you imagine how bad they would be with it?! ‘Ridiculous that they were closed’ do you actually hear yourself?

    Not a good idea. many children would use the same piece of equipment between cleaning. Children should be allowed to take a ball /frisbee / etc to the park though to use in uncrowded spaces.

    Outdoor surfaces will self-clean to some extent due to UV (sunlight) and virus-eating bacteria, although people should still sanitise before and after use.
