Shaping the Future of Play

Site Evaluation

Location, location, location!

The location for your recreational area is just as important as the project itself. In preparing for a new recreational project it is important that your site meets the following requirements:

  • A level surface free of debris or contamination. 
  • Ability to excavate to allow for installation of play structure support columns and adequate fall protection surfacing.
  • Foot traffic can freely bypass playground area to ensure safety of all guests and avoiding unnecessary degradation of fall surfacing. 
  • Easy access to restroom facilities and other site amenities.
  • A safe use zone of six feet or more around all play components.  
  • Adequate natural shade or the ability to add shade as necessary. 

Once your site meets these requirements it is recommended that the site be inspected and measured by a Sports & Recreation Associates representative in order to create site maps that can be used to accurately position play components.
