An attractive nuisance is a piece of property that is attractive to children but can be harmful to them.

Insuranceopedia explains Attractive Nuisance

Swimming pools, sprinklers, and ladders can be classified attractive nuisances because they can rouse a child's curiosity. These objects figure in property liability cases when a child is harmed by them.

It is the duty of the property owner to recognize the potential dangers on their property and to take measures to prevent children from coming to harm. Swimming pool owners, for example, may have to keep the pool fenced in to prevent children from swimming in it without supervision
