Why do people keep saying gate or enterence of a playground? Save for those at a school, which wouldn't qualify anyways, I've never seen a playground with a gate or enterence. They are always open on all sides.
Its a UK thing, playgrounds are now usually in a fenced off area with their own gate, even ones in big parks are now usually enclosed.
There are still some that are just open access but almost all new installations are enclosed and older ones have fences fitted if and when the equipment is changed / upgraded.
Not just in the UK. It's pretty much standard practice now to have a fence around playgrounds everywhere in Europe. The exceptions are the old playgrounds from decades ago.
Actually some reviewers do know the cells, because for some reason they insist on using third party mods to add the cell grid when reviewing...
As others have said, the majority of playgrounds where I am in the UK have railings/fences around them (and signs at the gates which state the name of the playground and the contact details for the local council that is responsible for their maintenance). Therefore the sign/gate is usually the best location for the pin to be placed.
If it is truly "a little bit" that it is moved, you get an error that it is too close to the original point and it does take more than one person suggesting the more accurate location for it to end up there.
I definitely suggest a more accurate location when it appears that the pin is more than maybe 20 meters off. I see a lot of parks, churches, etc. nominated where the pin is set in the middle of the street conveniently where it happens to be within range to be a couch portal for PRP across the street from the nominated POI.
I disagree the most logical place would be the edge as that means players won't be interfering with normal people in the playpark, similar to how placing a pin in at the edge of a football/tennis etc pitch doesn't interfere. And I said creepy as a jokey thing but it's still something to consider as a safety side for players and non players
The vast majority of playgrounds in the UK have gates round them. The only places I can think of off the top of my head would be in parks themselves, and even then its about 50/50
