    Default Can you play in school playgrounds during the holidays?

    There is a school near us with a great play area...the gates are open...can I take the kids to play or is it trespassing?

    We have a school near us that has no fencing and to my knowledge people are welcome to use the playground during holidays so long as they behave. Dd1 school which is further away are not so welcoming due to past history of break ins etc. I think it depends on the school.

    so, I could assume that gates open mean no problem?

    In my head, families playing there nicely might stop any vandalism...hmmm, might just go down over the weekend and if we get told to go away we will.

    Seems a waste for such great equipment to sit unused!

    There's a public school down the road from my dads and we always went and played in it, and I still see kids playing in it these days so I assume its fine. I've never been told otherwise anyway

    You are not allowed on the school grounds after school hours or school holidays at our school and it's a public school.

    I think it varies state to state ( and perhaps school to school). When I lived in the ACT, the school near us was not fenced and the sports ground and playground were considered like a public park. But in Qld every school I know is fenced with gates, and off limits. If you tried to play there on weekends or holidays you'd be trespassers.

    We were allowed after hours/holidays providing we stayed away from the buildings.

    It's fully fenced and gates closed apart from the admin gates (there is work getting done) no signs saying stay out but there is crime watch signs on the fences. We are often reminded of the rules in school newsletters.

    Eta..sorry that was meant to quote the ops question to my pp
