Caring for Play Areas in 2020
Due to COVID-19, parks in 2020 have of course looked different than in years past: Parkgoers are far and few between due to social distancing and shelter-in-place guidelines, and amenities are temporarily unavailable for health and safety concerns. We all want to get back out there and play under the California sun, but until then, this is a great time for some much-needed playground equipment attention and maintenance. The economic injury caused by 2020’s pandemic has caused many budget cuts and interruptions to planned projects, but now is the opportune time to make improvements for your park’s play area.
Once the CDC and California state officials announce that playground play is safe again, well-maintained play areas with new additions will be must-visit places for families. Hit the ground running once the pandemic clears by persuing playground equipment maintenance or installation during this unexpected offseason.
