The Issue: Health Risks of Older Playground Equipment

Playground equipment encourages children to engage in outdoor physical activities, which can improve strength, control weight, and reduce anxiety, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. Yet in Mountain Park, the playground equipment was built in 1985, when arsenic trioxide was often used to pressure treat wood. By leaching into the local water system, this arsenic poses an environmental threat that the Environmental Working Group found was beyond the EPA’s recommended allowance. The older equipment also poses health risks from dilapidation with splinters and rusty nails that could lead to tetanus or other major health risks.

The Campaign: Updating a Playground with New Swings

If this Grassroots campaign raises $400, then the Mountain Park Civic Club can provide six new swings for Mountain Park's playground. Each additional $10 raised will go toward funding additional playground refurbishments. The new equipment will meet ADA guidelines and local regulations to ensure children and their parents have a fun and safe place to play.
