Dallas HOA Playgrounds
Playgrounds are a great way for children and parents in your community to get out of the house, meet their neighbors, and create community unity, all while having a good time. However, though playgrounds offer a lot of great attributes to a community, playgrounds can also be center of injury and/or a lawsuit. One of the best ways to combat both of these unnecessary evils is to adopt playground rules.
So, does your Dallas Homeowners Association have a playground? If so, does your Dallas HOA have playground rules and are they posted? Consider talking with your Dallas HOA management company about adopting some rules if you don’t have any.
Here are some rules your Dallas HOA management company may suggest you include in your playground rules:
1. Set Hours. This provides for a clear understanding of when the playground is open. Often, playgrounds are near people’s homes or right next to them and those homeowners don’t want loud noise disturbing them into the night.
2. Limit Use. Provided posted notice of who can be in the park. Only members of the HOA and their guests should be allowed. By posting this policy you can then enforce it.
3. Require Adult Supervision. You don’t want kids playing without anyone watching them. Not only for liability purposes, but to make sure the equipment is being used properly as well. Requiring adults to be there can help prevent an accident as well.
4. Limit what can be used in the playground. You may want to prohibit the use of roller skates, in-line skates, bicycles, or skateboards, etc. Your Dallas HOA management company should be able to give you an idea of some other types of things you may want your Dallas HOA playground to prohibit as well.
Following these few simple steps can help to prevent injury, keep your neighborhoods at peace with one another, and ultimately prevent a lawsuit.
