Check local laws — a condo owner's limited common elements are not owned by 
them so it is doubtful that they would be considered their “private" backyards. 
The association may still be responsible for what goes on there. I’m not a 
lawyer, obviously, but we’ve had several conversations with the city and our 
lawyers on related issues. Cohousing feels like a private community but the 
legal structure doesn’t recognize it as such.

There is also the issue of an attractive nuisance — unless it is a small 
trampoline that can be put away when not in use, it  would probably have to be 
fenced in.
