Jump houses to bounce back

Burlingame officials may rescind a ban on inflatable jump houses and allow parents to set up the popular party play structures at one of the city’s parks.

Last month, Burlingame’s Parks and Recreation Director Jim Skeels gave members of the department’s oversight board the results of an in-house survey of local cities’ policies regarding jump houses in public parks.

The majority of Peninsula cities allow jump houses in public parks, either accompanying a picnic permit or by special permit, according to Skeels. The commission will resume the conversation tonight and discuss allowing use of Washington Park for the play structures, for a fee. The meeting will begin at 7 p.m. at Burlingame City Hall.
