Abstract: City parks, public play areas and private gardens often contain contaminated soil. Children, especially very young ones, are particularly sensitive to contamination and adults therefore have a special duty to protect them. In order to eliminate health risks in areas where children play we must be aware of how to act when children play in even slightly contaminated areas. This pamphlet is written primarily for principals and teachers of day care institutions and parents of young children. It contains advice about daily precautions regarding children and their play and provides basic background information on pollution and its effects
