long metal steps to get down to a garden:dangerous for children?

seen a lovely 2 bed flat in ideal location, ticks all the boxes except its a raised ground floor flat, and the garden is the rear section of a largish garden which you can access via a long metal staircase (with gaps)
would you buy it if you had a 1 yr old and a 3 yr old. Obviously all garden sessions would be supervised i wouldnt leave them out there alone, but just fear a nasty accident somewhere along the line.

any experience of this kind of thing?

Why not replace staircase with something less steep/gappy if all the other boxes are ticked?

hmm. didnt think of that...not steep but quite a long flight of steps so a fall could be nasty

I know an architect who built his kids a slide down into the basement (where their bedrooms are)...
