Parks and playgrounds offer a diversity of activities for kids to take part in including swing sets, cycle paths, sports fields and courts and BBQ areas. Some don’t allow animals while others specifically have off-leash areas. Identify a park which is suitable for your child’s age, particularly if you feel safer with soft fall, fences and straps on swings for your toddlers. Follow marked cycle paths, stay within the speed limit, watch for other cyclists or pedestrians and wear helmets or protective sports guards. Keep children away from BBQ’s and be cautious around strange animals. If park equipment has been broken or vandalised report it to your local council.
