  • Additional necessary equipment in toddler playground
  • Getting playgrounds to meet National Playground Safety Institute (NPSI) standards
  • Adding automated faucets, toilets, soap dispensers, dryers, and napkin dispensers
  • Adding mirrors, hanging hooks, baby changing stations, seat cover dispensers
