Soft Surfaces Ltd's insight:

This article makes for a very interesting debate. Here at Soft Surfaces, we believe that the safety of children is vital, and therefore would argue that a playground can never be too safe. However we also believe that a playground must be an area for the learning and development of children, and as a result of this our products ensure to provide playgrounds across the UK with the educational facilities that kids need to learn, whilst having fun in a safe environment.
