After attending an audit performed by a Certified Playground Safety Inspector I took what little knowledge gained to the Tot-Lots of Wildomar. What I found was not a big surprise.
Marna O’Brien Park had numerous loose apparatuses, such as the RHINO, there is no telling how long this has been in this condition as there is no one person (Park Department) to contact at the city or an easy way to do so from the park.
Fortunately the parks part-time employee was present and having no one to bury today I persuaded him to fix the problem. He did the best he could with the limited tooling available to him at the cemetery. That’s correct the parks do not have there own tools even though many of the structures require special tooling found nowhere else in the city.
Tightened with a tool provide by moi-meme. That means it came from my house.
Still needing repair is missing bolt on transfer steps leading to a slide. Along with some missing hardware and parts.
It would be nice is the sensory panels we do have worked as well.
Somethings discovered can only be answered by an official audit by a Certified Playground Safety Inspection by a CPSI using the tools of the trade.
Next I went to Heritage Regency Park were every was going swimmingly until
This lead to the discovery of more glass. This occurred several hours after the parks were open to the public for the day.
A few loose bolts were noted and several items that have been broken for a long time need to be replaced.
The last park was Windsong which was kind of fun as several children were using the equipment and wanted to know why such a big kid was on the equipment.
Some of these problems were corrected like the Rhino at Marna O’Brien and the broken glass at Heritage Regency only because on this day an employee was present.
