Getting the Most Out of Your Playground Equipment

Peaceful Playgrounds tips to getting the most out of your playground equipment.

The expected lifespan of a playground ball is one year. The following suggestions will lengthen the durability of playground balls:

* Do not over inflate.
* Do not leave sitting outside all day in the direct sunlight. Move the ball cart into a shaded area when not in use.
* Kids should not sit on the equipment.
* If you have a wall for games like handball or wall ball then use only one color of ball on the handball wall. The walls will cause balls to warp and become lopsided. A good solution is to enforce that only green balls are used on handball walls so that all equipment does not get ruined.
* The handball balls will need replaced more frequently.
