    3 tell tale signs that a public park is a health risk


    Slips, trips and falls are common accidents on the green, but that doesn’’t necessarily mean to say that your public park is a health risk. Walking, running, and playing on uneven terrain is bound to cause some trips and falls, but there are some more severe hazards that can mean a public park is a health risk.

    When a public park is a health risk

    When considering if a public park is a health risk you must bear in mind park users and the nature of the open space. For example, a playground in a public park is brimming with potential hazards for children, but this in itself does not mean that the public park is a health risk.

    That being said, there are some common indications that a public park is a health risk. Three of the most common tell tale signs include:

    1. Litter and broken glass, which can cause trips, lacerations and infections
    2. An abundance of wild animals, such as the deer at Richmond Park
    3. Unmaintained facilities including toilets, benches and pathways

    Have you been injured in a public park?

    If you have suffered an accident in a public park through no fault of your own, you may be able to claim personal injury compensation for the harm and distress you have been made to endure.

    When you visit public parks, the holder of that park, be it private or local authority owned, is responsible for your health and safety. In the case that you suffer an injury due to their negligence, they can be held liable for your public accident.
