The Supreme Court provides new guidance for what constitutes a “dangerous condition” of playground equipment for purposes of governmental immunity in Colorado.  The case, St. Vrain Valley School District RE-1J v. Loveland, involved injuries to a young child sustained when using a zip line on a playground.  The parents sued the school district, contending that the district waived immunity under the Act’s provisions applicable to recreation areas.  They did not allege any defect in the zip line but argued that the zip line itself was dangerous, constituting a “dangerous condition” under the Governmental Immunity Act.  The Court disagreed, based on the language of the Act and on its prior rulings.  The Court held that a “non-negligently constructed and maintained piece of playground equipment cannot be a ‘dangerous condition.’”
