Splash Park Standards and Inspections

    Looking for advice, guidance or references for the inspection of a Splash Park in a public space. Are there any standards or guidelines out there that cover this? Does the playground inspection methodology suit (so far it doesn't) and how have you managed it?

    Hi Ashley
    There are a number of things at play here.
    The usual general risk,  and equipment maintenance and cleanliness, and then water quality ( there is the GSPOS , and the Vic  Water quality guidelines for public aquatic facilities Managing public health risks) and depending on the design and elements  -Playground  Standards.
    Also in the heat a key consideration as young children crossing from wet spaces to dry surfaces and play equipment -that causes burns,
