All Play Inc. Develops Plan to Outsmart Child Predators

Houston Playground Builder and Local Subdivision Employ New Strategy to Keep Kids Safe

HOUSTON, TX--(Marketwire - March 31, 2011) - All Play Inc., a Houston firm specializing in the design and installation of commercial playgrounds, has developed a revolutionary new strategy to protect children from child predators.

Texas law provides that sex offenders who have been placed on community supervision, released on parole, or placed under mandatory supervision may not live within 1000 feet of playgrounds, schools, day care facilities, or any other areas where children gather. A violation of this law can trigger the revocation of a sex offender's probation or parole, resulting in his re-incarceration.

Armed with this information, All Play Inc. assisted the residents of Pine Hollow, a subdivision just south of Houston, Texas, with a unique rearrangement of their neighborhood footprint. Mapping out the residential area to pinpoint locations for new playgrounds, they were able to ensure that no playground was more than 1000 feet from another, effectively blanketing the subdivision in Child Safety Zones. With All Play's assistance, the Pine Hollow home owners association opted to construct a network of Pocket Parks, small areas throughout the neighborhood with playground equipment.

"Criminals that target Texas children are using devious methods," observed All Play president Kurt Futrell, "and we have to be smarter than they are."

The nearby City of Pearland ruled that, in order to qualify as playgrounds and meet the qualifications required of Child Safety Zones, the Pocket Parks should include, at minimum, three independent play events and playground signage. Using Kid Builders playground components from the Little Tikes Commercial line of products, All Play assembled a network of Pocket Parks conforming to these specifications. With the addition of four Pocket Parks, along with an existing large central park, this action by home owners association has made Pine Hollow a safer place for kids to live.
