The goal of our project is to build a community playground for every body regardless of ability or disability. A place where all children can feel welcome, safe and where friendships can grow. This accessible playground will be designed keeping in mind the variety of abilities that will be accessing it. This will include: ramps from bottom to top of each structure, shaded features, adaptive swings, musical elements, spongy ground surface etc.... An accessible playground, one that welcomes all children, is not a luxury; it is a necessity. Every child deserves to access a play structure with their peers. This playground will provide that opportunity. A place where every child can "join in".
