Workshops Help Create Safer Play Environments

Thursday September 12th, 2019
Townships that have playgrounds in their parks or recreation areas can learn how to make these amenities safer for children by attending one of the workshops being held this fall by the Pennsylvania Recreation and Park Society (PRPS). The workshops are funded in part by the state Department of Conservation and Natural Resources.
Parks and recreation board members and public works crews will benefit from this educational session, which features classroom instruction, discussion, hands-on exercises, and a site visit to a local playground. The workshops will be presented by PRPS playground maintenance instructors who are certified playground safety inspectors.
Participants will also receive the following resources for future use and reference:
Handbook for Public Playground Safety (Consumer Product Safety Commission);
• National Parks and Recreation Association’s Dirty Dozen Checklist;
• playground inspection forms; and
• a list of online resources.

The workshop dates and locations are:
• October 1 — Allentown Department of Parks and Recreation, Lehigh County
• October 10 — Schenley Park Ice Rink Banquet Room, Pittsburgh, Allegheny County
• October 22 — Ferguson Township Municipal Building, State College, Centre County
