Playgrounds: Equipment Acquisition, Installation and Maintenance

  • Saint Paul Public Schools (SPPS) supports the acquisition and installation, updating or relocation of playground equipment at various school sites. Through the application of these standards for the implementation and maintenance of these amenities, safe, responsible and entertaining playgrounds can be achieved.

    Any interested group, such as a school Parent-Teacher Organization can initiate the process for acquisition and installation of a playground.

    In order to create a playground, steps must be taken prior to planning a safe play environment for children.

    To the right is the complete Standards and Procedures for playground equipment acquisition, installation and maintenance. Please review the document and contact the Facility Planning Manager early in your planning process.
