Playground Safety

Since 2019, the city has replaced playgrounds at Cedar River Trail Park, Coulon Park, Liberty Park, Teasdale and Tiffany Parks. We also added a new playground and amenities at Sunset Neighborhood Park.

Over the next six years, more playground replacements are scheduled, including at Kiwanis Park and Kennydale Beach Park in 2022. All these projects are funded through the Capital Improvement Program.

New playgrounds incorporate age- and skill-appropriate equipment for children based on two age groups: 2-5 years and 5-12 years. Safety surfaces are one of two types, either Engineered Wood Fiber or poured-in-place rubberized surfacing. The selected surfacing depends on existing site conditions and budget. All Renton playgrounds have ADA-accessible components.

Typically, a playground will last 15 years. Play equipment selection, layout and installation, and safety surface selection are thoroughly reviewed. Each playground strictly meets the latest Consumer Product Safety Council (CPSC) and American Society of Testing Materials (ASTM) certifications for playground safety conformance. Once installed, certified Parks Maintenance Workers routinely inspect playgrounds for continued compliance with CPSC standards.
