All children love a really good playground. Even though play is increasingly being moved to screens and phones today, an excursion to the child’s favorite playground is one of the highlights of the week. In fact, all children have the right to play in a stimulating, safe and appropriate environment. It is decided in the UN Convention on the Rights of the Child that Sweden is of course behind it.
Building a fully equipped playground can be a big project that deters many, but it does not have to be difficult or time consuming. However, it does require you to rethink some parts before you begin!
AT HOME OR PUBLIC PLACE?
If you are going to build a public playground that everyone can take part in, there are a lot of rules to take into account. You can read about all the rules that must be followed in the Plan- och bygglagen (PBL) and it is mainly about safety requirements and but accessibility for people with disabilities.
If you are going to build a playground at home in the garden, you naturally have more freedom. Even if you do not have to comply with the same rules as at a public playground, it is always a good idea to check with the municipality if a building permit is required. It is probably not a problem if you own the plot yourself, but there are other rules that you must keep in mind. For example, there are rules for how close to the plot boundary you may build and also the height of the playground.
TIME AND BUDGET
Time and money are two aspects that always affect a construction project. When it comes to playgrounds, there are endless possibilities for the handy to build tools completely from scratch, which requires a completely different amount of time but can be cheaper in the long run. If you have more financial resources than time, you can choose to assemble your playground by buying ready-made equipment from a supplier. No matter what you choose, there are plenty of skilled suppliers of both wood and ready-made tools that allow you to build exactly the playground you want.
ALL PLAYGROUNDS REQUIRE A STABLE GROUND
What is the most important thing in a playground? In addition to the children having fun and being able to play together, it is of course safety. By anchoring the tools on your playground with a ground screw, you give the entire playground a stable foundation and a safer playground for the children. The tools on a playground must withstand both children playing and the weather and wind, so a well-established foundation is a prerequisite for a good and safe place to play.
