Extra layer of safety added to our local playgrounds

Crews have been busy adding wood chips to the City’s playgrounds recently. The wood chips serve as a groundcover below play equipment to absorb shock and prevent injury from falls. All City playgrounds are routinely inspected for safety compliance and wood chips are reapplied to depths required by California state law. The wood chips are applied through a flexible tube that blows the safety material from the truck to the playground. This method is fast, clean and protects the surrounding landscape.
