When it comes to children’s playgrounds, there are many considerations in design and construction, starting with safety aspects and taking account of equipment maintenance and longevity. In Baw Baw Shire, Victoria there’s a good example for new and refurbished neighbourhood playgrounds – the use of recycled plastic. The playground at Market St. Park, Yarragon has been fitted out with a number of different Replas products: post and rail fencing, seating furniture, drinking fountains and Enduroplank™ decking.
Using recycled plastic on both equipment and ancillary structures not only makes the playground area safer for children to use. It also ensures lower maintenance costs over the longer term of the products’ life, which in turn saves considerably on the taxpayer’s pocket.
