There are 150 playgrounds in the parks of Turku. The playgrounds are maintained and the condition of the playground equipment is being followed regularly. Some playgrounds offer instructed activities for children.
The city does its best to make the playgrounds safe and stimulating environments the whole family can enjoy.
The playgrounds are inspected approximately once every three months. The inspection includes checking the safety and condition of the playground equipment. The basis of the standards concerning playground equipment is to prevent accidents and damages.
The playground equipment has been designed while taking children’s motor coordination into account. Playground equipment where the child can get by him/herself are safe. If the child needs to be lifted to high equipment, his/her motor skills are not adequate to use the equipment.
The playground equipment should not be used while wearing a bike helmet, because the helmet may get stuck in the playground equipment and cause dangerous situations!
The playground equipment wears out in use and is replaced regularly. In case you notice some defects at a playground, please notify us at: www.turku.fi/paikalla
