Playground Maintenance Workshop


Developed by the Pennsylvania Recreation & Parks Society, this playground maintenance workshop is designed as the ideal course for field staff.  The one day workshop is packed full of practical, real work advice on maintaining playground equipment. The instructor, John Balicki, a former Recreation and Parks practitioner, offers an expanded curriculum with several hours of detailed instruction. This course should not be missed by anyone with playground maintenance responsibilities.
