The City of Bowie is committed to providing a safe environment for all those who use our parks. About half of the City's parks contain playgrounds for the enjoyment of our youngest residents. The City maintains nine playgrounds in seven parks.
In order to ensure the safety of the equipment, each playground is inspected twice a month. They are inspected by a Playground Safety Inspector who is certified through the National Recreation and Parks Association. The inspector looks for broken or missing parts on the equipment and repairs as necessary. He also inspects the surfacing underneath the equipment. He rakes and fills with engineered wood safety surface or repairs as necessary.
