Playgrounds and skate/BMX parks

Home > Risk management > Liability risk management

We understand that keeping the young community engaged in recreation, involves a balance between providing facilities that offer a suitable challenge to a broad age range, with meeting community expectations regarding safety.

You may be inheriting a playground from a residential developer, planning a new skate park, or dealing with an ageing or unused BMX park. Whatever your situation, careful consideration needs to be given to the public liability risks in these environments, where the main user group (children) may be considered as vulnerable and therefore a more onerous duty of care may be imposed on you.

We are able to assist you with:

  • Public risk considerations including at concept and design stage
  • Site risk assessments
  • Guidance with existing standards
  • Signage and warnings recommendations
  • General public risk advice
