Bath children spot the risk at play in Carr's Wood in Twerton
A new tactic is being used so children can have play areas where they experience risk in a safer environment.
Council officials have adopted a new risk-benefit approach to children's play aimed at helping them weigh up the safety of equipment and activities.
The first place where the approach has been used is a new play area at Carr's Wood in Twerton, which was roadtested by children from St Michael's C of E Junior School this week.
The woodland play area has fallen trees to climb on, a hilltop lookout, plus swing and balance logs.

B&NES Council cabinet member for children Councillor Dine Romero (Lib Dem, Southdown), said: "It's through childhood play that we first learn to spot risk. It's all about finding the balance between enabling children to get the benefits of exciting play without putting them at risk of serious injury."
