Accessibility & Inclusive Design Elements

Safe and engaging outdoor play is beneficial for ALL children. An accessible playground with features attuned to students’ various physical, cognitive and social-emotional needs will be an asset to the entire community. The new design includes:

  • Paths and ground surfaces that will be safely navigable for students of various physical, cognitive, and visual abilities
  • Specialized equipment that is both accessible to children who use wheelchairs and other mobility supports and appealing to all students to encourage inclusive play
  • Opportunities for students to get sensory input from activities like hanging, swinging, spinning, and playing with natural materials, which is especially important for those with sensory challenges
  • Quieter, tucked-away spaces for students who thrive in smaller groups or simply enjoy getting lost in their exploration of nature or imaginative games
