Prohibiting Children to Play on Grass?

We Stop Housing Discrimination

Can an apartment complex make a rule prohibiting children from playing on the grass common areas because the children will kill the grass or break a sprinkler?

Rules prohibiting children from playing on the grass areas because the grass may be killed or a sprinkler broken are illegal. If a child breaks a sprinkler, then the parent can be asked to pay for the replacement cost.  Just about any rule which prohibits children from playing in the grass common areas will likely be found to be illegal.
