The Safety Features You Should Look for in an Indoor Playground

July 16, 2019

Every parent knows the importance of physical activity in a child’s development process. However, there is always that nagging feeling in the back of your head that your child may get hurt while being physical. Indoor playgrounds are a great way to get your kids moving and exploring while minimizing the risk of injury. As such, knowing how to identify a safe Toronto indoor playground is crucial.


At Jungle Land, we go above and beyond to ensure that your child’s safety is at the forefront of what we do.


In addition to the advantages offered by indoor playgrounds, we provide extra measures from trained staff to updated equipment to make sure safety is never compromised.

Here are some additional things you can look out for regarding safety in an indoor playground:

Child-friendly Surfaces

A non-negotiable feature for every Toronto indoor playground is safe and appropriate surfaces to minimise the impact of slips and falls. These acceptable surfaces include engineered wood fiber, synthetic or rubber tiles, and poured-in-place rubber. With safe surfaces, even if your child falls, they will not be injured gravely.

Proper Openings

Every piece of play equipment in a Toronto indoor playground should have adequate openings to avoid unlikely entrapment. It’s a given that little ones love to crawl through open spaces, sometimes even under guardrails and between bars. This is why it is advised that playground equipment openings must be less than 3.5 inches or larger than nine inches.

Adequate Spacing Between Equipment

It is important to pay attention to the spacing between equipment as well as slide exit zones. There should be enough space for children to move around and prevent overcrowding or collisions, which is often the cause of injury.

Sometimes, minor injuries are part of the experience of growing up. At Jungle Land, we believe fun and safety go together, and so we take every measure to ensure safety is key.
