Time for the Kids to Return to the Playgrounds in Spain’s Costa del Sol

IN anticipation of the end of the state of alarm, the Estepona Council chose the town’s playgrounds to be upgraded and made more attractive for children who had little fun and activity for so long.

Initial work focused on the synthetic shock absorbing floors that are made up of rubber tiles, some of which had become unsafe or had weeds growing between the joins.

All were repaired or replaced and properly sanitised whilst all of the playground ‘hardware’ has been inspected, repaired and painted where necessary so that as the children return, they can do so in safety.

Cleaning operators will have a backpack that dispenses disinfectant and bactericidal products and they will visit each playground on a daily basis paying attention also to litter bins, as well as fencing and general surroundings of these public spaces.
