Do you let your kids play in restaurant playgrounds?

I wonder just how dirty those places are. I have never seen anyone cleaning them.  I can only imagine the filth in them.  I would never let my child in one.

We purposely go to Chick-fil-a to let them play but I have seen them clean it and 1 time a month they bring in professional cleaners to pressure wash everything.

No. We do not eat at those kind of establishments.

the only one near me is a bit of a drive so we don't go there too often. but in winter i do sometimes make it a point to go just so they can burn off some energy, it's basically the only place to play indoors around us. It's not very dirty. Probably germy, but that's what soap is for.

Yes. Our places clean them weekly or monthly. A little bit of germs build immune systems

If we happen to be at one yes.

My two yr old won't eat McDonald's or Burger king at all and those are the only places that have them here.

She'll eat A & W tho. And they don't have one, not here anyways.

I used to work at McDonald's as a cleaner. We cleaned them down every single night. And we had someone clean it once during the day. Or any other time it needs to be cleaned(accidents, puking etc....) it got cleaned.

My kids are big! I'm not sure they clean the playground equipment at the elementary school? When they were little they did a few times. For the most part my kids played at parks,no need to be trapped inside when its nice outside.

Actually I have seen them clean them at Chick-Fil-A.

How old are your kids? They have a height limit there, don't they?

At least the rain washes stuff off there.

I would doubt that not all clean them since they are franchised. So many I have seen are nasty!

Strangest thing you found while cleaning them?
