Is Lek's Play paid to include entries on the website?
We are currently not compensated for posting entries on the website.
If you are interested in creating an entry on our site, please contact us.
Do you visit every place on Lek's Play?
In our view, it is important that we experience each and every place we include on the website. We want to provide the most accurate information possible and, in order to do so, we visit every location and take our own photos.
How often do you update entries?
We try to keep our site up to date and often revisit locations, however, sometimes we cannot capture every detail if a structure is broken or if there has been new construction. If there is something we have missed you can submit it at the end of each entry.
What is accessible equipment in a playground?
Accessible equipment are play structures which are made to be used by children with disabilities. Most accessible equipment is designed for children with gross motor disabilities. Examples we often find in playgrounds are seated swings with a harness or carousels that can accommodate wheelchairs.

Basket swings are considered accessible but are very common and baseline. We have chosen not to put an accessible icon on playgrounds with only basket swings. Instead, we try to highlight playgrounds with more purpose-built accessible equipment.
