Many factors weigh into a play equipment selection. Various equipment styles, manufacturing materials, quality and safety features differentiate your selection possibilities. Also, the Consumer Products Safety Commission (CPSC) recommends separate play areas for preschoolers from ages 2 to 5 and school-age children between ages 5 and 12. As a rule of thumb, 40% of your equipment budget and space should be allocated to preschoolers and 60% to school-age children. Adjust this ratio depending on the mix of ages using your playground.
Most play equipment falls into one of two types. First, composite playstructures are connected and offer a wide variety of active and social play challenges. A well-designed structure can accommodate a large number of children in a relatively small area. Second, swings, climbers and spring riders are typical of independent playthings, which should be located a safe distance away from a composite structure. The best play areas offer both types of equipment to satisfy the needs of a greater range of users.

Consider the materials used in the equipment you are contemplating. For example, wood has a natural look but it is likely to crack and requires significant maintenance. Some steel products rust quickly in damp or salty areas, making aluminum or stainless steel a better choice for structural parts. Vinyl-coated metals offer users protection against temperature extremes. And plastic parts should be made of high-quality resins with additives to prevent color fading and UV-degradation.

When making a final purchase decision, consider these important points:
* Ease of installation (and availability of professional installers, when needed)
* Follow-up support services available from the representative
* Durability of materials
* Manufacturer's playground-specific maintenance program
* Manufacturer's warranty
* Cost of ownership over the life of your equipment
* Manufacturing and delivery time
One of the best ways to review the choices is to visit existing playgrounds, both old and new. See how the equipment wears over time, talk to the maintenance crew, and seek references from other churches that have purchased similar equipment.
