Liability for injuries on a swing set/slide

I would like to know what liability a homeowner might face for any injury to neighborhood children should they come into the yard to use the homeowners childrens large backyard play set which includes slide/swing/climbing etc.

The yard is not fenced in, sometimes the owners children are present sometimes not. Sometimes there is no one at all home during the day and it is possible that the equipment might be used by neighborhood children without any invitation to do so.

I believe there is a term like 'attractive nusance' or 'attractive hazard' that goes with this sort of situation.

What must the owners do to safeguard themselves from suits arising from children who may injure themselves playing on this equipment? When and how would the homeowners be liable?
