Playgrounds meet the criteria for exercise, exploration, and socialization, and as long as they are not located on single-family private residential property or K-12 schools can be considered eligible.

Playgrounds should be nominated as whole and not individual playground items. Even if the area includes separate slides, climbing frames, sandboxes and or swings, there should be one Wayspot nomination marking them all as a collection. If there are separate, clearly divided playgrounds for young children and older children as below, however, each can be nominated individually.

:+1: The images above show separate play areas intended for two different groups of children.

:-1: Some ordinary items may look slightly like play equipment, but are not proper play structures.

For example a carpet beater, as pictured above, is a piece of utility equipment and therefore is not eligible.
