Andrew Says:
" Playgrounds with soft surfaces under the equipment are safest. Soft surfaces are sand, pea gravel, wood chips, and rubber. Do not use playground equipment that is over a hard surface. Hard surfaces are blacktop, cement, dirt, and grass".

Things to Remember!

Blacktop, cement, dirt and grass are not safe!
Playgrounds should have a soft surface, such as wood chips, shredded rubber, pea gravel, sand, and poured-in-place surfacing.
